Brother, Can You Spare $6 mil?
By Steven Taylor @ 2:26 pm

Al Gore to Donate $6 Million to Democratic Groups

Former Vice President Al Gore promised on Wednesday to give more than $6 million left over from his 2000 presidential bid to help Democrat John Kerry fight “outrageous and misleading” Republican attacks.

Gore, largely out of the public eye since endorsing Kerry’s rival Howard Dean in December, said he will give $4 million to the Democratic National Committee and $1 million each to the party’s House and Senate committees.

Two things:

  • I thought big donations of evil money to campaigns corrupted politics and was bad, bad, bad.
  • How did Gore manage to have $6 million left over? No wonder he lost. It’s like saving a time out in a football game that you lose because time ran out-it isn’t like you can take it home with you.

    1. That much money can buy alot of TV. I bet it could have changed more than 500 votes in Florida. Sorta wants to make you beat your ad buyer. :)

    2. Um- With all due respect, there is no way for Gore to know on election day how much cash he had. It is not like it is a static number. There are thousands of bills out and even more thousands of donations out.

      Considering the Florida debacle it would not be surprising to learn he got 8 million in donations AFTER the election was over meaning he was -2 million on election day.

      I’m FAR from a Gore apologists, but the guy had no way of knowing.

    3. Indeed.

      And I am being a bit tongue in cheek on the 6 mil anyway.

    4. Gore To Donate $6 Million to Democrats
      Al Gore will donate more than $6 million to Democratic Party groups from his 2000 campaign funds. According to the Associated Press: The former vice president pledged to donate $4 million to the Democratic National Committee (news - web sites).

    5. Paul makes sense, especially when you look at the donations this year. Dean continues to rake in the dough…

    6. This may not be fraud in the eyes of the law but it sure is in spirit. Say you gave cash to Gore in 2000 to support him. Then four years later you learn 6 mil was left and is being given to the RNC and other Republican groups. In the last four years things change, you no longer support Gore or certain groups he is giving your cash to.

      Fraud in spirit.

    7. Cranial, I don’t remember the exact law but if you give to a campaign and they decided not to run (again) you can ask for it back before they give it away.

      My memory is poor but this problem has been addressed.
