Fundraising Transgression

This is not cool.

The College Republican National Committee is under fire for using front organizations to collect millions of dollars in contributions, including money from elderly people with dementia....

...Many donors complained that they thought the money was going directly to the Republican Party, and not to the college group, which no longer is affiliated with the GOP. The controversy over the letters has produced angry responses from leaders of state College Republican chapters, including those in Washington state, North Carolina and New York.

This is pretty minor in the big scheme of things. I highly doubt this will become a media feeding frenzy. But it was still a stupid thing to do. And it demonstrates yet again the disproportionate amount of attention any Republican transgression is likely to receive from the MSM. Something like this from Democrats would never generate a single story.
