Source of Land millions still murky

Again, it's great that in response to Terri Lynn Land hiding from the media that the media went looking for Terri Lynn Land ... not her spokespeople, mind you, but the real Terri Lynn Land. The Terri Lynn Land they found was the Terri Lynn Land that we've been hearing that Republican insiders were afraid would get sussed out.

Precedent, however, is less clear when considering why the U.S. Supreme Court has kept in place contribution limits on spouses and relatives if they could simply move assets among accounts. FEC rulings on the subject have been somewhat inconsistent.

Jan Baran, a Republican election law expert in Washington, said it’s not only a question of whether the money came from a joint account but one of “where did the money come from originally,” and its purpose.

In the case of Land, the de facto Republican nominee to replace U.S. Sen. Carl Levin and a former Michigan secretary of state responsible for enforcing election laws, the original source of the funds remains unclear.

But, who could have predicted that in a campaign environment where shadowy money is considered speech would wind up being an excellent incubator for a mysterious $3 slush fund?

We all do it
Hey, I misplaced a dollar bill a few weeks ago - so obviously both sides are equally guilty of this! {end sarcasm}

(I'm just mocking the false equivalence/"both sides do it" crap that we so often hear in politics.)

They're still looking for that $3 million?

Where are those spies when you need them?
