    as not getting indirect financial benefits from a deal.

    even if he paid his own travel expenses, he could have benefitted from having other business and living expenses paid for by the SuperPac.

    and even if he took no media commissions, there is such a thing as benefiting from networking in politics!  The people who DID get the media commissions could have ways to funnel money to Rove, or encourage their friends to funnel money to Rove.

    besides, in the linked article they mis-state Harry Reid's allegation about Rmoney.  Reid didn't say Rmoney "never paid taxes".  Reid said he was told Rmoney had not paid federal income taxes for ten years, a claim which still seems plausible to me given the loopholes available to a man in his income bracket.

    this is why i don't trust the fact checker and their pinocchio rating anyway.  they play fast and loose with the truth

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
