Knollenberg's Spends Money Irresponsibly

We've already pointed out that Knollenberg's Chief of Staff is Washington DC lobbyist. Yes. Knollenberg's Chief of Staff is a lobbyist, just like the infamous felon Jack Abramoff!

But now Knollenberg and his lobbyist have put up a billboard and website asking for contributions. The press articles report that the billboard cost $10,000 and the website cost $1,500. Now they are trying to raise campaign funds to cover that cost -- but they are trying to raise them in amounts below which they have to track and report the individual donations to the FEC!

Are Knollenberg and his lobbyist, Trent Wisecup, trying to skirt campaign finance laws?

Of course we also have to question the judgment of anyone who would put up a billboard like that for $10,000.

Unfortunately for us, Knollenberg spends taxpayer money just as wildly as he spends his millions in campaign funds.
