Litmus Test

Bonus Quote of the Day

"Further, the subject continued, that as a single man running as a political conservative, it was necessary for him to appear at campaign related events with a female escort."

-- A "close-out" memo from the Florida State Attorney's Office ending it's investigation into Rep. David Rivera's (R-FL) campaign finances.
Heh in-fuggin'-deedy.

Haven't read it; paid female escorts?
ADDED AFTER READING (1545 PDT): Why, yes, from the actual report (via TPM):
Further, the subject continued, that as a single man running as a political conservative, it was necessary for him to appear at campaign related events with a female escort. According to the subject’s broad interpretations of the law, it was appropriate and permissible to pay for his female companion’s expenditures as well, as they were essential to his elections campaigns. The subject was actually able to identify political party events, functions, or meetings, in connection with most if not all of his out of town trips.
OK then.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
