    breakdown anywhere, but when this was first revealed, at least one Democrat said she didn't get it. Perhaps there are more.

    I'd also just question the logic of it. Grimes is a lawyer from a heavily political family. She's also already an elected official. She has to know this would look bad, even if it weren't shady or illegal, and there are other ways of hitting the same people up for money, if she knew who they were. It's just as easy to get their personal emails, if it wouldn't be ethically questionable, or just to hand deliver an invitation to their houses inviting them to a fund raiser. She's also probably able to do math. Unless there are a lot of absurdly rich county clerks, she has to know this would be of limited value and the downside would be enormous.

    I call bullshit.

      so it has nothing to do with her. The addresses were clearly either added by mistake or someone signed up on her website using those addresses intentionally.

      •  It'd be nice if voters made that distinction. (0+ / 0-)

        I'm not so confident they will.
