Wow... just wow.
RNC considers selling TV rights of presidential primary debates - CNN.com
WTF... what do you mean "so"??? This can neither be legal nor ethical!
I suspect it's both legal and ethical; avarice being a traditional Republican value. That said a 'debate' by the Republican pols in waiting might rival a show on Discovery filming grass grow.
And this would be different from obtaining funds thru fund raisers etc how??
I don't care if the DEMs or REPs or Greens or whatever party does this..
What on earth would be illegal or unethical about this?
The RNC is in debt. They want/need the money.
LOL, imagine if MSNBC won them! They could have Matthews, Madcow and Overbite (coming back for a liberal biased reunion) tossing biased, race baiting and slanderous questions at them!
"Larry Noble, an election law attorney with Skadden, Arps, described it as a "novel" concept but also said it raises a "serious question" as to whether it is even "possible under the law" to make such a payment beyond the federal contribution limits. Federal law caps an individual's and a political action committee's annual donation to a national party committee at $30,800."
How could it possibly be legal when the millions of dollars paid to the RNC for programming would be far above $30,800?
Who isn't in debt?
Separate names with a comma.
