Fund-Raising Dreams v. Reality

RedState observes a discrepancy of generous proportions.

Q. So, what's going on?

A. The Democrats seem not to have as much money as somebody told us that they have.

Q. Excuse me?

A. Yup. Specifically, the Democratic National Committee. As per the FEC Disclosure form for June, which has finally gone up, they have only $4.53 million in the bank, and raised only $7.59 million last month.

Q. Hold on. Didn't they claim...

A. $22.5 million raised, $20.3 million in the bank? Yup. See here and here. At the time, I accepted the numbers myself, as did everybody else on the planet.

Q. So, why the discrepancy?

A. I don't know.

Might be time to engage some auditors--or cut down the ingress of pizza-and-beer deliveries to DNC's treasurer's office...
