    Doesn't appear that DeMoss was writing all that many checks for political donations anyhow.  Though I don't doubt he rounds them up from others.  I think it's a play to help push Steele out.

    2008 - Team America PAC, $5000
    2006 - Commonwealth PAC, $5000
    2008 - McCain for President, $2300
    2008 - Linder for Congress, $2300
    2008 - Free and Strong America PAC, $5000
    2007-8 - Mitt Romney for President, $2300

    Total Contributions - $21,900

    Nothing comes up on RNC or other party donations.  Though the PAC money could be a laundered money pass-through.  Still, all in all not a big donor.  Instead an operative - I have some vague memory of him sharing an office address with Ralph Reed, for example.  And the DeMoss family foundation has given tons of money to Campus Crusade for Christ, too.

    Grab all the joy you can. (exmearden, 8/30/09)

      1997 - Linder for Congress, $1000
      2002 - Dooley for Congress, $250
      2009 - Free and Strong American PAC, $5000

      And "Richard M. Moss"
      2000 - George Bush for President $1000

      Plus, I think his wife is named April:
      2000 - George Bush for President $1000
      2007 - Mitt Romney for President $2300
      2008 - Free and Strong American PAC, $5000
      2009 - Free and Strong American PAC, $5000

      So, over the course of a decade, this (very rich) couple have donated roughly $40k.  Total BS that they're claiming to be big donors, at least with checks they write themselves.

      Politico really did their homework on reporting this one, eh?  (And Dante, maybe you should have looked...?)

      Grab all the joy you can. (exmearden, 8/30/09)
