The Donald is invincible; no matter how outrageous his behavior and pronouncements, his followers will continue to worship him, and the mainstream media will continue to carry him on its shoulders, at least until he has secured the nomination. But those who climb in bed with him are more vulnerable. Many a political career will follow Chris Christie's down the tubes before this tragic farce has played out — possibly including Pam Bondi's:
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi in 2013 was considering joining in a lawsuit against Trump University. Shortly thereafter, a check for $25,000 was sent to Bondi’s campaign
political action committee[electioneering communications organization] “And Justice For All” by the Trump Foundation. AG Bondi (who has since endorsed Trump) ended up not joining in on the Trump University lawsuit. So far, so bad: but here’s the wrinkle: the left-wing government transparency group CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) today noted that the Trump Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is thus not permitted to make campaign contributions. Nobody noticed at the time because while the Trump Foundation reported the contribution properly on Florida campaign finance disclosure forms, it reported it to the IRS as a contribution to “Justice For All,” which is a non-political, pro-life group out of Kansas. Justice for All has confirmed that they never got that money; CREW has now lodged a formal complaint with the IRS.
The campaign finance rules largely imposed on us by John McCain are tyrannical, unconstitutional, and selectively applied. But you still have to follow them, or at least Republicans do. Dinesh D’Souza could tell you all about it.
