Skip to comments.Carly Fiorina’s first political campaign had a surprising problem: Money
Posted on 10/04/2015 7:08:19 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Famed California pollster Joe Shumate was found dead in his home one month before Election Day 2010, surrounded by sheets of polling data he labored over for the flailing Senate bid of Carly Fiorina.
Upon his death, Fiorina praised Shumate as the heart and soul of her team. She issued a news release praising him as a person who believed in investing in those he worked with and offering her sincerest condolences to his widow.
But records show there was something Fiorina did not offer his widow: Shumates last paycheck, for at least $30,000. It was one of more than 30 invoices, totaling about $500,000, that the multimillionaire didnt settle even as Fiorina reimbursed herself nearly $1.3 million she loaned the campaign. She finally cleared most of the balance in January, a few months before announcing her run for president....

She appears to be a greedy little witch. ( I cleaned that up.)

Height: 5' 8" (1.73 m)

And she couldn't spare 30 grand that the guy had EARNED.

Compared to Hillary Fiorina is an angel.
Hillary has stiffed people for tens of millions and they are still waiting.
She stiffed the small businesses. Not good.
Compared to Stalin, Hitler was a piker. I wouldn’t want to live under either one, though, would you?
“Democrats were worried, particularly about Fiorinas money. If she self-financed her campaign, her opponents said they feared it would embolden the argument that Boxer was a longtime senator beholden to special interests.”
Hmmm, in case anyone wanted to know why the Democrats FEAR Trump so much - read the above again. They aren’t doing everything in their power to help prevent the Republicans from running a crappy candidate - they are SCARED TO DEATH that Trump could easily beat them.
Now we have HARD EVIDENCE regarding what they REALLY FEAR.
I knew that pretty much from the first day.
“I knew that pretty much from the first day.”
I know you did, but sadly many on our side actually do believe the media and Dems are trying to help us from making a really stupid mistake.
As a widow who was cheated out of a large amount of money, I find this to be particularly offensive.
I can see why Bushbots/Rubiots and such don’t like him. But the others?
You know it is.
Just making conversation. They are both greedy Machiavellian types.
When Trump said of Fiorina:” Look at the face!” I understood exactly what he meant. He was not talking about her looks, he was talking a face that looks angry,mean,vindictive, ruthless. That is what he meant by persona.
Fiorina is Hillary’s mini me.
“Widows Against Carly” LOL.
You’re CORRECT! If THAT is even close to the truth.....
Calus Carli! Don’t ever speak about “the character of our country” again.
Deplorable, and the work of a despicable opportunist to sit on debt to the dead, UNTIL the moment arrives where it looks bad for herself personally, as she in her self serving interest wants to make a play for the presidency.
I liked her until the last debate. I found her answers robotic, rehearsed, and as phony as Hillary.
She is not the answer.
