    and he isn't even Speaker yet.

    He's using the promise of taxpayer dollars to try to help elect Republicans.
    And, we're supposed to believe that Republicans intend to be fiscally responsible if they take control of Congress?

    Even the folks at the right-wing-leaning USNews, which reported this - are disgusted.

    Schumer cutting monster checks to help out fellow Senate Democrats

    Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) has gone on a late-season spending spree to help Democratic candidates.

    A new campaign finance report shows Schumer cut two checks to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) worth $1 million each in September.

    He has also poured money from his campaign account into state parties around the country. Friends of Schumer gave $250,000 to the Nevada State Democratic Party on Sept. 7, a crucial boost to embattled Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

    Now that's ethical. People in New York State contributing to Schumer's re-election campaign are actually having their money funneled over to Harry Reid's campaign.

    Perhaps this deserves its own topic...
