Check out Politico’s article on Donald Trump’s success in collecting the funds of an adoring public who wish to support his presidential bid … and transferring campaign money into his own pockets. Some would call this unethical, others would call it good business but certainly, this is completely unprecedented:

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has paid his family’s businesses more than $8.2 million, according to a POLITICO analysis of campaign finance filings, which reveals an integrated business and political operation without precedent in national politics. The GOP presidential nominee’s campaign has paid his various businesses for services including rent for his campaign offices ($1.3 million), food and facilities for events and meetings ($544,000) and payroll for Trump corporate staffers ($333,000) who helped with everything from his traveling security to his wife’s convention speech.
