Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, June 14, 2021

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is further attempting to prove he's pals with Donald Trump after launching a lawsuit appealed to the Supreme Court that Trump and other candidates should be able to pay themselves back the millions of dollars they use to self-fund their campaigns. Trump loaned his campaign $10.8 million in 2015, and by March 2016, he'd given his campaign $38 million. Trump even went so far as to claim that he was willing to spend as much as $100 million of his own money to win in 2016. He didn't ultimately give that much officially, but it was certainly a lot, particularly given the hush-money payments uncovered. Cruz claims that the McCain-Feingold Law violates the First Amendment by limiting to $250,000 fundraising to repay loans a candidate makes to his or her own federal campaign.

I sincerely hope this gets laughed out of court. SPENDING your money is free speech according to the SCOTUS not LOANING it. Sounds like the Billionaire is just being greedy again or does he really not have that much as has been suggested?

I really don't disagree but Money = Speech according to SCOTUS. Even 250k is a LOT of money to self finance.

Trump is the ultimate Karen. He sends his cuckcruz to beg for his money back after losing the election.

It must suck to be Cruz. Such a pathetic bitch. He must actually enjoy being ridiculed and abused. And I hear his wife is ugly.
