LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Stunning accusations that a top California Democratic campaign treasurer looted the war chests of her big-name clients have left candidates across the state scrambling to raise more money as election season looms. Kinde Durkee, who controlled the funds of roughly 400 candidates and groups, ranging from Senator Dianne Feinstein to local Democratic youth clubs, was arrested in September and charged with fraud.

The fact that they asked for allowances for campaign financing tells me this is a ruse they have their money. They want more.
Why hide it? They already told us they were crooks.
And people actually depend on this party of gilded fools to run this state,I don’t think there is gonna be any love lost between the treasurer and the recipients.
Here is the porker who ripped them off .......Yeah sure I would trust my finances to this thang. But what do these Cali Democrats care it is all free campaign money same as taxpayers money
All Kinde Durkee did was occupy their funds, so I don’t know what they’re complaining about, damned greedy rich 1-percenters.
I’d say nix until there’s an accounting of what became of the funds that Durkee allegedly embezzled.
Oh, please.. it`s California. Do high-profile dems REALLY think they`re at risk out there? They control the “media,” the producers and wealth builders are fleeing that state with stunning speed, and hispanics are pouring in from across the southern border to replace them.
The dems needn`t worry. California is chained firmly by the neck to the plantation floor and isn`t going anywhere.
Damn, that thing is so butch even Barney Frank would hit it.
That is one nasty, UGLY...er....um...”person.”
Well, we know she didn’t spend the money on diet plans and makeovers.
Just spreadin that there wealth.
Well she did manage to give the Calif. Dems a big case of STD-—SERIOUSLY TRANSFERRED DOLLARS!
Looting the looters?

Too funny! It’s only a problem when it’s their money but when it’s other people’s money, they’re all for spending it on deadbeats such as themselves.
This is of course, “Bush’s fault”.
