DOK'S CAMPAIGN FINANCES - Don't leave the burg without your American Express
As Bram reported in earlier comments, it sounds like YES DOK was at the luxurious Bedford Springs Resort during the G20 Summit. The question now is how did DOK pay for it?
Bram reported that DOK used American Express award points. The HUDDLER is asking where did these points come from? If they came from an american express card outside of the campaign, these points and or the services purchased with them are campaign contributions and should be reported.
The HUDDLER finds it difficult to believe that the "campaign" has been out there swiping the AMEX cards since announcing with such volume to constitute AMEX points that will pay for 350$ a night lodging at a swanky resort?
American Express has a program that let's one donate AMEX points to thier favorite charity. The HUDDLER has used it in the past. Perhaps those donut points neeed to go to charity instead of spa services for Pittsburgh's favorite little rich kid?
The HUDDLER will be waiting to check out DOK's finance reports to see exactly what the campaign has been up to? The real question is do they need volunteers? Because the HUDDLER could use a trip to Bedford Springs!
