The Creative Fees of Campaign Finance

ben sasseThis morning, I found the perfect quick summary of the state of campaign finance ethics in the United States. On April 17, The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, (which is in fact funded by unlimited contributions from executives from corporations like Verizon Communications, CastleArk Management, Retamco Oil & Gas, Anderson Logging, and Bietzel Aerospace) wrote a check to a company called Active Engagement LLC to support the U.S. Senate campaign of Republican Ben Sasse.

What was Active Engagement LLC hired to do? That’s impossible for us to say. The check was written for “creative fees”.

Creative indeed.

    Ooh, I think I just got a corporatist woodie!
