    I am confused... Is this somehow fundamentally different than a pac or super pad donor having a meeting?

    Trump is still the only candidate to actually get fined for pay to play.... GOP sure is trying to hard to appear like hypocrites.

    This is a tried and true practice with Ambassadorships. Shrub did it one step further putting moneyed interests into cabinet secretaries like the Interior, Housing, EPA, FDA, and the USDA.

    James Garfield got shot from a lunatic thinking he deserved spoils.
