  • In their political afterlife, former politicians and their staffers are hoarding unspent campaign donations for years and using them to finance their lifestyles, advance new careers and pay family members, an investigation by the Tampa Bay Times, 10News WTSP and TEGNA-owned TV stations found.
  • Former Rep. Ron Paul , R-Texas, still has an active presidential campaign account that he used to pay almost $16,170 to his daughter through 2017, five years after he last sought office.
  • Six campaign finance experts told Times/WTSP reporters that some of the zombie campaign spending was a potential election-law violation that should have been investigated by the FEC.
  • Since Tallon was no longer campaigning, some of his spending looks like personal use of campaign funds, said Adav Noti, a former attorney for the FEC who is now a senior director at the Campaign Legal Center.
  • Former independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Rep. Charlie Norwood, R-Ga., both donated more than 90 percent of their money to charity and closed their campaigns within a year of leaving office.

  • But he’s never seen a movie like Black Panther, the latest Marvel superhero movie set to hit theaters Feb. 16.
  • FROM 2017: WWE’s Titus O’Neil wants kids to hear the same words that set him straight – – He and Alicia “Joy” McDowell are working together on a Tampa Bay-focused part of the #BlackPantherChallenge, a nationwide movement to raise money to help children see the movie together.
  • Bullard especially wants to help children from low-income families who attend Title I schools because “those kids don’t get a lot of stuff.”
  • The movie Black Panther is a first in many ways: It’s Marvel’s first black superhero movie, cast mostly with black actors led by a black director.
  • So far Bullard said he and McDowell have raised enough money to take 500 kids ages 13-18 (sorry adults) to see the movie in theaters in Tampa, Brandon and Wesley Chapel.
