    I find this kind of sad.

    Sarah Palin’s Die Hard Supporters ‘Stunned,’ ‘Disappointed’ - ABC News

    What becomes of all the money she's raised? Prolly paid out in a salary to herself.

    They moved on their own accord. They created this group on their own with no apparent leadership from Palin, EVER. While I hate Caribou Barbie as much as anyone, how could you possibly blame her for these two idiots' ludicrous behavior?

    She gets to keep it until she desides to run in the future.

    Then she can do it all over again.

    Until her little game runs out

    Right, and Bernie Madoff's victims were also victims of their own stupidity.

    Swindle...interesting word choice. But just another Palin thread about something Palin's done but as usual there's no there, there.

    As to campaign money - unless the law has changed again - all candidates/office holders are allowed to keep their war chest money if they decide not to run or retire. And the money is taxed as ordinary income. For decades though they could just keep the whole lot of it tax free, which could be looked at in some cases as legalized bribery. Still can be for that matter, but at least the government figured out a way to get its hands on some of it.

    Victims of their own poor choices.

    But she certainly led them on. And thousands of others.
