I thought only nursing homes claimed to be “non profit” so that they could funnel millions of dollars to political candidates. But I guess if one industry gets away with it, it’s just a matter of time until others jump on the corruption bandwagon. We have made a mess of our political system.

The lack of comments from the same folks that had plenty to say about Republican Jakes Files is very interesting.

Murphy01, that’s because it’s not a crime for a Democrat Politician to commit a felony. It’s a resume enhancer.
