Where is all of his campaign money coming from anyway? Who is behind those big numbers?

Tori_z said...

Nah, he can't share it... He needs it for his holidays after he bribes people to vote for him. Isn't that how things work usually?

And even with all those huge numbers you dug up, punkn, an even bigger chunk of his donations come from individuals giving less than $250, so they don't need to be made public.

Wow!

You are right Chicago, I forgot to mention that.
