Early Screw-up

And just when you think that Jake has gotten his congressional act together (well, not that any of us actually thought that he would get his act together --ever-- but that aside…) he has done it again. So what is it this time?

He did not file his FEC financial disclosure. Just didn’t. Oops! So now the FEC is after him, and let me tell you, the IRS has nothing on the FEC when they are going after the money...

Isn’t it ironic? From all the areas in the campaign that you could have screwed up on, this one was definitively not one that Jake could afford. He should’ve been especially careful in keeping his financial records clean and accurate, especially in light of the fact that so many members of his family have been in trouble with the law over financial irregularities.

Not good. Not good at all.

I wonder if they are having trouble cooking the books to make it appear as if Jr.’s resources haven’t played a part in his campaign… but that of course, is just speculation (or is it not?) Maybe, Mr. T wasn’t as good with math as they though he was. I wonder if someone inside the campaign is standing alone in the corner, thinking: “Gee, maybe we should have hired that guy with the college degree for that job…” I’m almost certain that many are crying bloody-mary that the government is coming after them because he is a Ford, and that this is an ambush to take them down forever, bla, bla, bla. Surely, you have heard this tune before…

So many possible scenarios, so little time to run them all in this post. I’ll leave the rest up to your imagination.

I am tired of making a point about how incidents such as this are further proof that Jake Ford is unqualified for this position because, at his point, is redundant. Jake is not ready to sit at the grown-up’s table, and we all know it. Seriously, he needs to get on his little short bus, go home, and get a life.

T just isn't good with dollars. He's used to the metric system. And counting in grams.

There's no excuse for dropping the ball on something like this. It's not like they haven't had months to cook those books by now.

Excellent post, Pam.
