Campaigning Ended, Spending Continues

Do you check that box on your tax return to dedicate funds to the Presidential campaign? Okay, you probably don't, but I guess a lot of folks do. Maybe after reading this report from the ABC affiliate in Raleigh, NC, they will think again:

Former presidential candidate John Edwards still has nearly $4 million in the account he set up when he made his 2008 run for the White House.

It includes federal matching money and donations from contributors. An I-Team review of records shows the campaign has not returned those millions to contributors or the federal Presidential Election Campaign Fund.

And, even though he ended his campaign for president nearly three years ago, records show public money still pays the salaries of some on Edwards' staff, and more is going for lawyers and travel expenses.

That's at the same time a federal grand jury in Raleigh investigates the Edwards' 2008 campaign finances.

Records show the campaign is currently spending between $50,000 and $90,000 a month.
