    Fundraising companies say their fees are well-earned and still leave candidates with more money than they would have if their ads had not been shared widely. But critics, including Klacik and some other 2020 candidates, say the system is deceptive, trapping first-time politicians in onerous contracts that siphon away cash their donors intended for them. “It sounds like part of the swamp that needs to be drained,” said Bruce Dale, a Klacik donor from Michigan who was aghast to learn that a chunk of his $800 in donations may not have made it to her. “They can say it’s legal,...
  • Are Democrats Really This Dumb?

    You’d think with the inauguration of Joe Biden tomorrow, and the special election in Georgia two weeks ago, that the fundraising emails would dry up. If you thought that, you’d be wrong. Not only have they not stopped, they haven’t even slowed down. And they’ve gotten dumber. That they keep coming implies they work, that they work makes me think Democrats are really, really dumb. There isn’t much Democrats won’t try to exploit when money is on the line. We’ve seen them fundraise off of murders and riots, so nothing is sacred in pursuit of the dollar. Here are some...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who sits on the sensitive House Intelligence Committee, said in response to an explosive story about ties to a suspected Chinese spy that “congressional leaders knew about” the matter and implied that they apparently did not think that it was a big enough issue to keep him off the Intelligence Committee. The alleged spy, Chinese national Christine Fang, “targeted up-and-coming local politicians in the Bay Area and across the country who had the potential to make it big on the national stage” through “campaign fundraising, extensive networking, personal charisma, and romantic or sexual relationships,” Axios reported....
  • Democrats Get Even More Desperate For Cash Near the End

    I don’t know what’s going to happen when the polls close tonight, no one does. Anyone telling you differently is selling something. But I did notice a new level of desperation in fundraising emails from Democrats in the closing days. This could be because the end of the grifter busy season is coming to an end – a ton of money was raised and spent this election cycle and those raising it made a fortune taking their slice – or it could be they’re worried. Whatever the case, I wanted to draw some attention to a few of the more...

    House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy brought in a record-breaking fundraising windfall in the lead-up to the November election as Republicans try to take back control of the House from Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats. McCarthy raised more than $16 million in the third quarter across all seven of his fundraising accounts. That puts his total for the 2020 election at $103 million -- the most ever for a House Republican in any election cycle, a McCarthy campaign aide told Fox News. The fundraising haul has allowed McCarthy to pump funds into individual House races where Republicans are trying to defeat...

    CLEVELAND - Joe Biden’s campaign touted that it raised a record $3.8 million in fundraising during the 10 p.m. ET hour on Tuesday night as the former vice president and President Trump traded fire during an extremely combustible first of three presidential debates. And the Biden campaign characterized Trump and “tired and angry” while Biden appeared “confidently smiling.” “There was one leader on stage tonight and one liar,” charged Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield.

    Erica Kious, a single mother of two and owner of eSalon, where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got her hair done on Monday is now being forced to shut down and relocate her business and family due to outrage and threats she is receiving.

San Francisco's coronavirus guidelines allowed hair salons to reopen their businesses for outdoor services starting Tuesday, with clients seen one at a time. Haircuts are permitted, according to the guidance, but...

GoFundMe said campaigns for Mr. Rittenhouse violated its terms of service but did not explain further. A campaign on rival service Fundly disappeared without explanation as well.

    Ilhan Omar's primary opponent has raised a whopping seven times more money than the controversial Congresswoman - also raising the possibility Omar could be voted out of office after just one term. Antonne Melton-Meaux brought in $3.2 million while Omar received $471,600 in the second quarter of 2020, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission. Melton-Meaux, who seeks to unseat Omar in Minnesota’s fifth congressional district, is a lawyer and mediator. It is nearly impossible for Minneapolis to miss Melton-Meaux's flyers and campaign ads that have blanketed television. When asked what inspired him to run for office, Melton-Meaux told...

    Media reports on the June fundraising totals would have you believe that Joe Biden “tops” or “beats” President Trump. However, whoever is running Joe Biden’s campaign better keep the corks in the champagne bottles, because the truth is June was a terrible month for Joe Biden and the Democrat Party. Joe Biden was an anemic fundraiser throughout his primary battle. A report from Politico in October of 2019 said Biden was getting “crushed” in fundraising. It argued, “Obama and Clinton’s biggest donors favor Biden, yet he still can’t match his rivals’ cash flow.” According to the report, Biden had more...

    President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden both set eye-popping fundraising records last month – but Biden’s records were larger. The former vice president’s campaign announced on Wednesday night that they, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and their joint fundraising committees hauled in a combined $141 million in June, which was by far the campaign’s best monthly figure to date. Biden’s campaign called it a “jaw-dropping sum of money”

    EXCLUSIVE: The Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign posted their largest online fundraising day ever on Sunday, bringing in $14 million across three entities on the president's birthday — smashing their previous online fundraising record of $10 million on Oct. 19, 2016. The surge in cash comes as Republicans' war chest continues to dwarf Democrats' holdings, as it has for the entire primary cycle. Trump and the RNC – which have been building a fundraising juggernaut for more than three years – have roughly $255 million cash on hand, compared with the approximately $100 million the Joe Biden campaign...
