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.
