Take the money and don't run.


House Speaker Paul Ryan, citing family, will not seek re-election in November

James B. Nelson, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 7:31 a.m. CT April 11, 2018 | Updated 9:57 a.m. CT April 11, 2018


snip . . .

Earlier this week, Ryan's campaign reported it had raised more than $11 million in the latest fundraising period.

Team Ryan said that with the latest $11.1 million during the first quarter of 2018, it has raised more than $54 million during this election cycle.

2. This is a concerning thing.

Many States allow Politicians to keep their Campaign Cash on hand as well as any Contributions in the pipeline.

3. Most do. It can be a form of bribery or extortion....

I know I've told you before, but everytime I see your handle I gotta smile remembering Paul Wellstone and his eventual successor, Al Franken. You all vote well.

7. Even money says this is what Trump is up to as well

He is running for re-election and fundraising. But I do not expect him to stand for re-election.

9. Frankly

I would let him have it if he would just go away.

He would only be stealing from people who support him so I can't feel sorry for them. It is better than having him steal from government coffers.

Mostly, it would just be good for him to leave when the 4 years are up. Assuming he lasts that long of course.

10. Good point. He's the exception to regulating campaign funds at retirement.

4. I imagine there will be some nice corporate payments to cash due to his 'tax breaks'

a cushy high paying job perhaps?
