Melanie Sloan of CREW, though, overdoes it with concern-trolling:
“If donors really understood where their money is going, I think they would be aghast.”If you mean ma-and-pa donors, well, yes, I'll agree there. But, if you mean big donors, nahhh ... they expect it.
And, at least with the cult-like followers of Paul, even ma-and-pa donors will rationalize this stuff.
