What's a measly $700k to tRump when you have $100 million??

https://www.azmirror.com/2022/07/15/its-on-us-town-to-foot-public-safety-bill-this-time-for-trump-rally/





clip
The Center for Public Integrity in 2019 identified eight other cities across the country that it said were trying to claim a total of about $700,000 from the Trump campaign


FEC states candidates not responsible?
The Federal Election Commission confirmed that there is no requirement “for congressional or presidential campaign committees to pay for expenses incurred by a state or local municipality in connection with a federal officeholder’s or candidate’s campaign event.” If candidates do foot the bill, they are allowed to use campaign funds to pay security costs, the FEC said.


Tucson's smart!
Mandel said that due to the experience of not getting paid by either campaign for the 2016 rallies, Tucson has since changed the licensing agreement and policy for its convention center. Not only are event organizers responsible for all costs including security costs to use the convention center, they now must pay the costs in advance to be given access to the facility.


Wonder if this is a ploy to absolve himself of financial responsibility
Trump will not be appearing as a candidate at Saturday’s event in Prescott Valley but will instead be there to rally support for the Republican candidates he has endorsed in Arizona.

Imagine you're an egomaniac

You lose to Biden and you can't take it... You go to the ends of the earth, listening to crazies, ignoring your attorneys, because your ego is so insatiable that you can not handle a loss. You even go as far as trying to kill your lapdog VP? Who cares.

Fast forward, your criminal actions are being uncovered. What do you do? Normal people would await outcome. But NO - you go back to that group of people who adored you - your crazy MAGats, because it's your safe place. You run again because you have an uncontrollable need for their blind adoration. Your safe place where you can dance with no rhythm.

Former trump atty, just on CNN, said he was surprised that the govt had no DIRECT evidence

of coordination between trump WH and insurrection groups. (Yet?)

They keep saying hearings are almost over. Trying to move from disappointment to good this is all now in history books mode

What did you worry about as a kid?

For me it is like one iota of what our kids are dealing with today. Covid, and shootings, and the environment collapsing. And a first lady that uses the F word in the same sentence as Christmas!?

Makes my ice cream falling off my cone, into the sand, while riding my bike home, pretty damn miniscule.

Makes me want to work with kids... But jeez what in the world would you even say to them?

Common person head scratcher re J6

Re: The encounter Hutchinson described that occured. Presumably, shortly after the event ( trump freaking out in SUV)

1. Why would Engel tell Ornato? Aren't they trump apologists? Why would they trash him? Heat of moment? And then call Hutchinson in? Why?

2. Why did Ornato tell Hutchinson the story? It happened to Engel! In fact it had just happened to Engel! Did he just stand there mute?

3. Why wave her in to tell her? Either they were all incredibly simpatico or something??



Disclaimer:. Just an ordinary Dem. Please just kindly correct if I have something wrong
