Almost sounds like he was laundering money to live a more opulent life.  Seriously though, $1800 on cigars?!  If he isn't going to a baby shower with a 1950s theme, I would love to hear what the justification is.  I'm sure the FEC would like to know too, lest they feel the need to refer the matter to another agency.

As a cigar nerd, I am curious as to which brands were purchased.

Isn't he worth at least tens of millions of dollars though?

I completely fail to understand the modern GOP penchant for penny ante grift, instead of the old days where they would go make millions as a lobbyist or billions as a CEO.

That's the free market at work. Too many grifters, not enough board room chairs to go around.

Totally fair. But if I had his money, I wouldn't bother with that crap for a few grand here or there. Seems like it pays less per hour in the end than working at daddy's office or dealership or whatever.

You don't get rich buying stuff with your own money.

Seriously, I think there's a certain segment of society in which you're rarely paying for stuff yourself. It's always the campaign, or one LLC or another, or one of the trusts you're associated with, or it's framed as a gift or some kind of compensation, maybe a couple steps removed, from someone you directed your nonprofit's contracts to.

If you're rich, all kinds of crap peons can't get away with expensing is suddenly a "business expense". Probably sometimes they go too far I with this stuff on purpose, but with little things it may well be the result more of a habit that a particular malice or intent, in those cases. Though the general practice and pattern obviously stinks.

Like, think of that one Trump appointee who had their department order them tons of new, luxurious office furniture. For some rich folks and executive-types that's just what you do. Probably were surprised anyone thought that wasn't OK.

It's easy to spend a lot of money when your goal is to spend a lot of money for the sake of being seen spending money.

Go in and ask for their most expensive cigars. Then add on some fancy looking lighters and cutters and who knows what else and it will add up fast.

He probably grossly overpaid for some repackaged Swisher Sweets.

As shown in TFA, any time you see a white man wearing a dress shirt with the cuffs loose and unbuttoned, performatively smoking a large cigar in public, you can be 100% certain that he's a Grade A douchebag, looking around to see who's noticing how cool and suave he thinks he looks.

I still remember when Swisher came out with a "premium" line of hand-rolled cigars...back in 2000, IIRC.

Unfortunately, this won't be the last we hear of this evil little shiat. He'll get on the grifter circuit, rehab his image some, "relocate" to some district in BFE and be a member of the House again. He may even be able to maintain his seat next time, if he's capable of learning from his mistakes.

I don't think he's gay so much as he'll let anybody suck his dick.  No physical sexual attraction about it, just dominance.  Ritual cigar smoking and getting your dick sucked by peons are trappings of the powerful white male basking in his success, so he wants that in excess.

I don't know if sucking his dick actually achieves anything other than generating kompromat, though.
