Why I Don’t Give Money To The RNC
Well the story is already a day old, but when the third paragraph in a story on the front page of The Washington Post goes like this:
…the RNC’s latest filings captured widespread attention for one expenditure at a risque nightclub: $1,946.25 for “meals” at Voyeur in West Hollywood, which features topless dancers wearing horse bridles and other bondage gear while mimicking sex acts.
…it is probably not going to be a good story for your side.
I’ve been involved in many campaigns and party functions and can honestly say that nearly all of them have spent their money in a proper manner where I never felt like I was throwing my money away. There have been a couple times where I regretted giving money to a candidate when I found they were spending on things that they shouldn’t have been, but those people did not last very long in politics and people catch on pretty quick when someone is spending money in an inappropriate way. But it is also a reason I try to limit all my contributions, as limited as they are, to strictly local candidates that I know personally where I can at least see how money is being spent and determine rather easily whether they deserve more of my money or not. It is also why I rarely give money to national party organizations and/or other groups where I know this type of stuff goes on more than what was even reported here….
