Ted's Excellent Accounting Adventure

Ted Cruz is not keeping track of his contributions.

I am just certain there’s something that Ted Cruz is good at besides being the zombie whisperer. However, we can add another entry to the things he cannot do: accounting.

The FEC sent Ted a letter (PDF format) saying that it’s real nice he refunded Elizabeth Wiskmann’s contribution after a complaint was filed that she over-donated to Republican causes and ran afoul of FEC regulations.

There’s only one problem. He never reported that she donated to him in the first place.

In order to refund a donation, you would necessarily have to show that one was received, ya know. Or, as Rick Perry would say, “Oops.”

So, we are left to wonder who else gave Ted money duly reported on the other set of books but not on the reports to the FEC?

Hmmm ….

Can you help us out?

For 16 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit. We work 7 days a week, 16 hours a day for our labor of love, but with rising hosting and associated costs, we need your help! Could you donate $20 for 2020? Please consider a one time or recurring donation of whatever amount you can spare. It will be greatly appreciated and help us continue our mission of exposing the real FAKE NEWS!
