|User Info||Still SR 38 - Gary Johnson And Debt!; entered at 2012-02-14 08:02:15|
Personally I didn't think much of the Gary Johnson 200K "campaign debt" as I'm assuming its his own money. Its a common practice of political candidates to loan their own campaigns money. So I started a posting on this thread of yours Karl on the importance of fact-checking and assuming that Gary's campaign debts were just his own personal loans to his campaigns. Then I realized that I don't know the source of Gary's campaign debts so I started googling. I read http://www.courthousenews.com/2012/02/13.... and see that Johnson has a big problem on his hands if both this story is true and he's thinking about continuing keeping his hat in the political arena. If I were running for office I'd know to first make sure that any potential personal blowup problem such as this was resolved or contained before moving forward. And there's no way IMO that Johnson couldn't have known about this problem brewing. I suppose he could blame it on trusted underlings and if that's the case then it should still blow up in his own face because he put together a shoddy team.
