    Like Kent Sorenson?

    Govan was announced as a “senior adviser” to Steyer’s South Carolina campaign in October, raising some eyebrows among those who found it curious a campaign would be paying a state lawmaker while receiving his endorsement.
    Hmm... I seem to recall some Republicans getting arrested, some having their houses raided, over something like this in Iowa.
    Ron Paul aides avoid jail time in endorsement scheme
    Sept. 20, 2016

    Two former Ron Paul presidential campaign aides will see no prison time for their roles in a plot to make hidden payments to an Iowa state senator in exchange for his endorsement.

    Former campaign chairman Jesse Benton and campaign manager John Tate will instead spend two years on probation and pay a $10,000 fine for crimes that prosecutors said corrupted the 2012 Iowa caucus process. Prosecutors wanted the political operatives each sentenced to serve more than two years in federal prison.

    U.S. District Judge John Jarvey said prison sentences usually work best to deter future white-collar criminals. But he considered many factors before giving the men probation, including how much they have already suffered throughout the criminal case, he said.

    "Nothing about this sentence is intended to diminish my respect for the decision to prosecute or the good work that the FBI did," Jarvey said before sentencing Tate.

    Neither Benton nor Tate spoke with reporters as they left the federal courthouse in Des Moines. Benton smiled widely and held hands with his wife.

    Former deputy campaign manager Dimitri Kesari, who was also convicted in the conspiracy, will be sentenced Wednesday morning.

    The sentencing hearings signal a close is near to a strange saga in Iowa caucus history that began when then-Iowa Sen. Kent Sorenson shockingly switched his allegiance from the campaign of former U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann to support Paul days before the first-in-the-nation contest. The switch prompted immediate allegations that Sorenson had been paid by the Paul campaign, which the conservative state senator denied in nationally broadcast television interviews.

    But emails, financial records and other documents showed the campaign secretly paid $73,000 to a limited liability company controlled by Sorenson through a third-party video production company. Prosecutors argued the men used the scheme so that publicly available campaign expenditure records filed with the Federal Election Commission would show no payments to Sorenson.

    There has been no sentencing hearing scheduled yet for Sorenson, who took a plea deal that required him to testify at trial against the three operatives.

    ...Throughout the case the defendants argued that election law is still unclear about whether a vendor to a political campaign or an operative can be paid through a third party. But Jarvey said during Benton's sentencing hearing that he does not doubt the hidden payments were illegal.

    "I haven't believed and do not believe that there is an argument to be made about the legality of this conduct," he said...

    Joe Biden tells audience: "I may be Irish but I'm not stupid"

    Hopefully Biden is not seeing this as his 'hot ticket' to 2020 win mimicking Trump 2016 strategy now that Trump has turned left on social issues.

    This is not 2016 and factors behind Trump cultivating 'racist' image before that election with birther card may not necessarily apply in 2020. 'Obama factor' no longer has same traction and post-2016-Trump and Obama are not exactly alike on social issues despite some common pro social justice/pro diversity policies. If social conservatives dumped Trump in 2020 enmass, theoratically such a bifurcated 'race card' play could help Biden win but it also carries risks for him.

    That's not racism, that's accusing someone who is black of criminal behavior. What racism is is crying RACISM when a black individual is accused of criminal activity when there is evidence of said criminal activity.

    Shocking! Biden can’t get away with this terrible racism!

    About half of the 45-member Legislative Black Caucus held a news conference on Wednesday blasting Democratic state Sen. Dick Harpootlian for remarks they contend insinuated that their group’s chairman had been bought by Biden rival Tom Steyer because he was paid for his work for Steyer’s campaign.
    ...
    Harpootlian tweeted earlier Wednesday about Federal Election Commission filings showing Black Caucus Chairman Jerry Govan receiving “almost $50,000” from Steyer’s campaign in just more than a month’s time and called the billionaire Steyer “Mr. Money Bags.”

    “Is he pocketing the dough or redistributing the wealth?” Harpootlian asked, referring to Govan.

    Harpootlian also told the Post and Courier newspaper of South Carolina: “He told me he was with Joe Biden until Mr. Moneybags showed up.” He continued: “This is what happens when billionaires get involved, whether it’s Donald Trump or Tom Steyer. They just buy things. They don’t have to persuade anybody, they just buy them.”

    In this instance the headline is all that matters. Perception is everything. Biden's only chance to get the democratic nomination is his overwhelming support among black voters. Apparently some people don't care about the fact that he co-wrote the racist 1993 Clinton crime bill or the fact that he actually did what Donald Trump was accused of doing (withholding foreign aid for questionable and probably personal reasons.)
