Leftover campaign funds?

>One thing's for sure: Upset candidates can't console themselves by putting the dough toward a new yacht and sailing off to recuperate. The Federal Election Commission has strict rules about what federal candidates can and can't do with leftover campaign money, and the biggest directive is that they can't pocket it for personal use.

Here's what a campaign committee is allowed to do with any lingering cash: it can donate the funds to charities or political parties; it can contribute $2000 per election to other candidates; and it can save the money in case the candidate chooses to run again.< (No, Clinton is not going to run again.)

It'll probably go to the Clinton Foundation and wind up providing treatment for a few million HIV victims.

There are a lot of rules about what to do with leftover campaign funds. If you were not a lazy ass, you could Google and find out. They cannot be used by the candidate for personal purchases. It is not my money, so I do not care. It isn't your money either. Why should you care?
