Blatant play-to-play politics displayed by Tillis

More fodder for his doomed US Senate campaign:

“I would estimate he is directly responsible for more than $100,000.00 in financial support through personal contributions to my campaign committee and other candidates and through the Hospitality Alliance,” Tillis wrote in a March 21 email to House leaders.

The chilling part of this is that it's apparent Thom Tillis considers campaign donations to be a perfectly legitimate reason to appoint somebody to a board or other position, as do most of his colleagues. And as to a Democrat giving such large sums to a Republican's campaign, well. With enemies like that you don't need friends.


Money Talks...

...and with Thom, you've got to speak very loudly to get his attention.

By far the biggest boon to his doomed US Senate campaign was the way he ensured that "Stand by your Ad" and outside group financial disclosure rules were repealed. I am sure that the slime that he and Art and Karl and the others had planned for Kay was already going to be massive.

Now that they don't even have to disclose who is giving the money or who is making the ad, they'll go nuclear.
