New Harrison video on YouTube

Steve's doing a good job sharing the wealth this primary season.

I bet whoever came up with this ad got a pretty penny.

That IS the only reason why he's still in this race, right? So his consultant friends can earn a pay check?

Good money if you can get it, I guess.

This is one of the most ridiculous assertions I have heard. FEC reports are public please go look up what consultants he is paying and come back with some support.

The people who make the commercials. And the flyers. And all that stuff.

They get paid good money, no?

So him staying in the race this long (a sure loss, no doubt) only really helps the people he's hired for his campaign.

Perhaps "consultants" is not the best word. But everyone on his payroll, including firms that make videos like that one, benefit big time whether he wins or loses.

Of course, if he wins, they benefit even more. But even if he loses, well - it's still good money if you can get it.

So yeah, these politicians who stay in the race long after their campaigns have been run into the ground, I'm convinced they only do it so their friends can earn a pay check.

You don't see to agree, or like that idea.

Might you be one of them?

Your accusation is totally baseless and absolutely false. You clearly don't know what you're talking about and are spreading desperate lies. It's an insult to people's intelligence and shows that you don't have any of your own.

The video was independently made by Harrison supporters who aren't even on the campaign, no less on its payroll. The next time you want to trash someone who inspires voters to do their own work for his candidacy on their own time and their own dime, have some evidence to back it up, even though you couldn't have any evidence for your claim because it's complete rubbish.

So instead of discussing the reality of the business of politics, you just brush the comments off as being baseless?

I'm not interested in who Harrison or anyone else may have "inspired."

I'm only interested in learning how much money people (not candidates, but their campaigners) make off these campaigns.

I'm sure it's good money if you can get it.

Why just a knee-jerk response to the truth?
