Not Chump Change

NOT CHUMP CHANGE….John Kerry ended his campaign with over $15 million in the bank plus $7 million in legal and accounting compliance funds. The legal funds I can understand, since those are meant to be used after the election, but the other $15 million is a little harder to justify. I’m not very sympathetic to post-election Kerry bashing, but in a campaign that featured a presidential race lost by less than 200,000 votes (and that went completely dark in August) plus several senatorial races lost by a few percentage points or less, it’s a little hard to understand why that money wasn’t put to use.
