The Donations of the Haters

There is a report that the racist asshole who allegedly inspired the Asswipe of Charleston has made significant donations to some GOP presidential candidates. Ted Cruz is returning the money, but Frothy and Baby Paul are silent.

I think it'd be better to have taken the jerk's money and then make a dollar-for-dollar donation to the NAACP legal Defense Fund or the Southern Poverty Law Center and say that publicly. But you know they won't, because that would piss off the racist component of the GOP base. Which as John McCain learned the hard way in 2000, is a lot of people.

I read that the other two are donating theirs to a charity set up for the victim's families, which is OK, but fails to address the actual issue here: a large chunk of the money corrupting our political process comes from the sort of people you wouldn't want to have an outsized influence on running the country. The only difference here is that this bozo got caught influencing asswipe du jour... What of all the others who didn't? And what of the ones currently influencing next week's asswipe?
