Erik Fresen's Loosey Goosey Campaign Report. By Geniusofdespair
Fresen actually had a $459.41 Wynn Las Vegas Hotel expense for "fundraising". Was he playing poker to raise funds in Las Vegas? He charged his account $2,726.70 travel expenses and he had thousands of dollars of meals on his account at many high end restaurants. He also gave a hell of a lot of donations (a few thousand to the Republican Party), at least $5,000. People are not giving to a candidate to give donations. They would do that themselves. Why do they need him? In total he spent a whopping $48,139.52, about 50% of what he raised as of March 30th. How odd are Erik Fresen's expenses?
Well I compared his expenses to Ana Rivas Logan's (I don't like her either). She spent $11,821.72 during the same period and most of her expenses were actually for campaign related material, postage, printing, etc. There were hardly any meal expenses and no giant cell phone bills or travel expenses. She raised $119,445 and spent about 10% of her money as of the 30th of March.
Who would you want managing your tax money?
