Mitt Romney’s campaign handed out more than $200,000 in bonuses last month to senior staffers, according to new disclosure records filed Thursday.
Richard Beeson, Romney’s national political director, received a $37,500 payment on Aug. 31 in addition to his salary, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission.
In addition, records show at least six other top staffers each received $25,000 bonuses on the same date: campaign manager Matt Rhoades, general counsel Kathryn Biber, policy advisor Lanhee Chen, communications director Gail Gitcho, digital director Zach Moffatt and advisor Gabriel Schoenfeld. Two other employees received $10,000 bonuses.
There’s nothing categorically wrong with bonuses, but Romney’s campaign has been the worst run campaign I’ve seen in my lifetime.
This is the corporate culture Romney will bring to the White House if he wins in November, only it will be American taxpayer dollars he will be wasting instead of money given to him by Sheldon Adelson and the Koch Brothers.
