That is still illegal.

Sure I robbed the bank but I put it back.  We're still cool, right?

Apparently not if you're GQP.

You'd think the little whore would've earned enough with all those handjobs she's been doling out.

It's a contest between the little whore and MTG for female asshole of the century.

The little whore.

Hey now, let's not denigrate perfectly worthwhile sex workers by association when terms such as "Shooty McHersheysquirts", "butthole remora" or "Mrs. Jayson Sexoffender" would work just as well.

She payed herself via Venmo? That's so Gaetz

A more appropriate name for her restaurant is shiatters.

Jesus christ, you libs won't stop until paying hookers hush money from your campaign is illegal too.

This woman and her husband have been entangled in fraudulent activities for a long time. Guess that's what qualified her in the GOP.

Mango Unchanged always stiffs jerk offs like Boebert. She just pretends to like it because to be otherwise would be bad for business.

Oh who cares. This could have been AOC or any politician doing this. Who cares, she paid it back before we even knew about it. What a non-story.

Focus on the 10,000 worse things she's done. They'll play this one up as a "media-gotcha" moment to excuse all her other bullshiat. Meanwhile she's probably giving capitol tours to insurrectionists again.

Hey, illegal interest free loan till she paid it back. Even at today's low interest rates not a bad deal.

Duppy is right, quit denigrating sex workers with that comparison. As far as Boeboert:

Could have been, wasn't, because they aren't crooks. If someone even suggested to AOC she borrow campaign money for personal use they would be out the door in seconds and you know it.

Without Mike Pence, all that would be legal. Used to be an accepted thing that politicians may use some campaign money for a few personal expenses. The rationale was that they'd end up working fewer hours in their day jobs, while campaigning, and need a few bucks here and there.

Mike Pence so abused the legality of using campaign money to pay for personal items by spending on golf memberships, old credit card debt, mortgage and car payments that they had to make some laws to police it.

No, this couldn't have been any politician. This could only happen to politicians that are illegally and fraudulently using campaign funds to pay off their own bills.

Even if you assume that she always intended to pay it back instead of only reimbursing it after she got caught, it's still highly illegal to use campaign funds as a short-term zero interest loan.

That's why i only use campaign funds for only fans subscriptions like an upright decent citizen.

Well, it's tough to justify taxpayer funded subscriptions to Honcho magazine.

is that a thing ? I mean, she probably gives them a blowie,perhaps more, but are we calling that a tour now ? A tour of the lips of hell or something  ?
I only ask because my boss is a sticker about branding.

Exactly! Why bother with petty crimes like campaign finance violations or a few hundred grand here and there in tax evasion.
It's small potatoes.
It's not like those things are serious from an ethical point of view, or show a pattern of behavior in a certain group of people, or add up over time when practiced by multiple people.
It's just money right?

A propos of nothing, there was a Shooters Grill in a little village near here. It was shut down after the bar served underage (17 y/o) hockey players and they drove off and got into a high-speed crash, killing all 4.

Her Congressional district just disappeared after redistricting in Colorado. You'll never hear her name again after 2022. And thank god for that.

That's the point, anyone, crook or not, might have done this by mistake, or one of her aids could have actually done it, mixed up accounts, didn't know what the hell they were doing, etc.

Of all the things Boebert has done, this def. falls under "when you hate someone everything they do is awful"

Actionable? Nothing is going to happen from this. Her campaign will be fined 100 bucks or something. The other stuff is not "outrage" it's actually stuff she should be kicked out of Congress for.

No it's not, don't be an idiot.

Bernie's wife was involved in some shenanigans, was that a criminal act? Or an honest mistake?

Just depends on whether you hate Bernie or not, it can be seen either way. This is the same nothingburger.

If I accidentally paid my mortgage with my company credit card i would be raked over the coals. If I did it four times I'd be fired.

She was taking a loan from the campaign and mingling personal funds.

I handle the campaign finance disclosure for a regional candidate. I report all the income and spending to the state of Illinois.

We have one checking account, with one debit card. It is not hard if you have your shiat together.
1) EVERYTHING going into and out of that account is for the campaign.
2) EVERYTHING for the campaign goes into and out of that account.

It does get more complicated (like in-kind donations of services paid by a third party), but paying a personal expense like rent would be impossible if you have a modicum of scruples and brains.
