Maybe they should make him explain himself in a court of law.

Oh, right, Garland don't give a shiat.

I'm guessing the reason that we see this shiat is the same as the reason why they're not prosecuting him. It's like jingling keys in front of an infant. "Ooooooh, look how stupid and criminal the Republicans are! Don't pay attention to the fact that no legislating is being done and nobody's being held accountable for their crimes!"

17 years and if I round down instead of up, the IRS is on my a$$ with the penalties and the liens and the goyas.  Always with the goyas!

Maybe they should have an IRS equivalent for campaign financing.  Oh look.  I just got 538 funnies.

So, a $17 fine?  Got change for change for a $25,000 cheque?  Just, just make it out to "Cash" and hand it to that guy over there so we can avoid certain fingerprints

Fingerprints?  I don't think so.

Did you read the article? it seems to be a bunch of accounting errors and laziness, checks that were given and not cashed with money left in the account, it did not come off as some attempt by the guy to steal campaign funds.

Kind of the point, I think.

I don't have any problem with someone's relative handling the financial components their employment.  It's done all the time.

But most of the time, those people are, you know, QUALIFIED to handle the numbers.  They have experience, possibly even degrees or are certified accountants or something.  

This is Devin, almost literally, screaming "MOOOOOOOMMY, I need HELP!  Can you figure out these numbers and stuff?!?" and his Mom goes "Lemmie finish the dishes first, then I'll look at your homework."

So, this clusterfark of a man-child can't balance his own checkbook or manage his own money.  Of course we should let him go to Washington and try to manage trillions of taxpayers money.  'Murica!!

Fostering a corrupt environment takes multiple parties. It takes both a criminal contingent and a contingent that refuses to hold the criminal contingent accountable for their crimes.

The FEC is chronically underfunded - especially on the enforcement side - and even when they do have someone dead to rights, the penalties are usually light.

The FEC is also, by design, a 6-member body. Deadlocks are getting more and more common (1 in 6ish votes deadlocked over the 6-year period 2008-2014). So, things like the Stormy Daniels and David Pecker/AMI crap, enforcement via the FEC dried up because they couldn't pass a vote to investigate.

The FEC is a joke, but the only other way to enforce campaign-finance laws is the FBI (which is run by DoJ; which, as much as we complain about that, is political and not independent from the President/AG). Maybe local law enforcement (so, DCPD plus a member's local cops), but that seems like a bog ask. Plus, who trusts local cops with investigations like this?

// unless SCOTUS eventually decides "well, this is really just speaking with dollars, it's not like someone was specifically paid to vote or not vote a specific way. So it's not a bribe. CASE DISMISSED."
// right, Bob McDonnell and Dollar Bill Jefferson?

You want Bill Barr in charge of investigating L'Affair Daniels?

It's almost as if Republicans won't stop being criminals until someone holds them accountable.
