3. Right wing back channels. Could be as simple as a paper bag stuffed with cash, or deposits . . .

to secret bank accounts, donations to church building funds, etc. It's not that hard to get money to these so-called men of the cloth, along with the understanding of what's expected of them.

Back in the 90s in the New York metro area, it became known that Christie Todd Whitman, then a Jersey pol, had distributed "walking around money", as it was called, to many black preachers with the understanding that they would endorse her to their congregations.

This is just the latest iteration of an old political tactic.

The good thing is that 99.9% of AAs aren't voting for Trump no matter what a preacher says. We know better. Hell, even those bought-off preachers probably aren't voting for Trump.
