Poor Tweety. What a public humiliation.

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by one_voice (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

Even with a pay to play scheme on "Hardball", his wife finished 3rd in her Democratic Primary race, which featured the biggest spending of any House race in this election cycle so far.


<The Matthews came under scrutiny last month when it was revealed Kathleen got some $80,000 from prominent political figures who have appeared on his show, “Hardball.”

The political-action committee for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) gave $10,000 to Kathleen’s campaign on June 20, 2015 — two days before Gillibrand appeared on “Hardball.”

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) contributed $1,000 on Jan. 11, 2016, one day before she was interviewed on the program.

Paul Pelosi, husband of House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), put $1,000 into Kathleen’s coffers.

Kathleen raked in more than $1.5?million.>

It's not as though those Senators are so desperate for media coverage that they'd have to pay for it.

Also, there was a reason that race was the biggest spending in history, and it wasn't because of Matthews.

I'm so glad I don't pay for Cable or Sat anymore.

GDP is for the discussion of the Democratic presidential primaries and/or the candidates. This is better suited for GD. Please re-post there. Thanks.
