Noted cheapskate and fake billionaire Lord Damp Nut is infamous for not paying his bills, stiffing contractors, and general smash-and-grab looting. So it seemed unlikely that the cost of his insurrection rally to whip the weak-brained into a frenzy to storm the Capitol and hunt for free-range Representatives came out of his own pocket.
So, who paid for it?
“The rally in Washington’s Ellipse that preceded the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol was arranged and funded by a small group including a top Trump campaign fundraiser and donor facilitated by far-right show host Alex Jones.
“Mr. Jones personally pledged more than $50,000 in seed money for a planned Jan. 6 event in exchange for a guaranteed ‘top speaking slot of his choice.’”
“Mr. Jones also helped arrange for Julie Jenkins Fancelli, a prominent donor to the Trump campaign and heiress to the Publix Super Markets Inc. chain, to commit about $300,000 through a top fundraising official for former President Trump’s 2020 campaign, according to organizers. Her money paid for the lion’s share of the roughly $500,000 rally at the Ellipse where Mr. Trump spoke.”
Legal beagles: does that make them co-conspirators or just more rubes that got fleeced, or both?
