The Lawyers and Accountants always get their loopholes!: "Mindful that fund-raising time is running out, Kerry is soliciting donations to a legal compliance fund he can use during the general election campaign to cover legal and accounting costs, reserving his roughly $75 million in government financing for ads and other campaign costs from August until November.
The legal fund, permitted under the campaign finance law, 'will allow the campaign to put more of its resources into getting John's message to the American people,' Kerry national finance chairman Louis Susman wrote in a mailing to prospective donors this month. 'Given the size of the Republican war chest, every dollar counts.'
The Bush campaign also has a legal compliance fund for the general election.
Bush and Kerry will detail their finances, including spending and money in the bank, in reports to the Federal Election Commission (news - web sites) due at midnight Sunday."

We shore can lobby!
