Phil Richardson: Money buys face time-the transition fund

By Phil Richardson Political campaigns are very expensive, and becoming more so on each election cycle. The cost for renting halls, giant jet aircraft, mailing brochures, outfitting boiler rooms with telephones and funding an unrelenting media campaign is something about which everyone is aware.
