Mitt Romney, his family, staff and supporters donated a combined $66,000 to help Tim Pawlenty retire the debt left over from his presidential campaign.
Romney, his wife, five sons and brother, as well as his associates from Bain Capital were among those cutting maximum checks to Pawlenty, according to a POLITICO analysis of campaign filings released Tuesday.
Pawlenty, the former Minnesota governor, dropped out of the race last summer after a disappointing showing in the Ames straw poll, and quickly endorsed Romney. At the time, there was talk that Romneys campaign would help Pawlentys retire its debt, then in the mid-six figures.
While theres no evidence that Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, has held any fundraisers or sent any fundraising solicitations for Pawlenty the traditional avenues for debt retirement help Pawlenty nonetheless managed to reduce his campaign debt from $435,000 at the end of September to a much more reasonable $103,000 at the end of the year. The largest debts listed were to an Urbandale, Iowa, compan, which was owed $37,500 for rent, and a Florida computer company, which was owed $23,000 for computer support and equipment.

At least T ‘Paw is a more expensive political whore than Nikki Haley. Nikki bent over for a mere $35 k.
These people make me ick.
Has Romney released his tax returns yet? How can one identify all the politicians he has bought?
One more reason I will vote third party when the GOP anointed one runs in the general...
“Nikki bent over for a mere $35K”
