Alaska’s Joe Miller Borrows and Spends

If this is the rate he’ll personally pay on loans to get elected, what do you suspect he’d be willing to do with borrowed (taxpayer) money in order to get (re)elected?

Joe Miller used credit cards to borrow about half of the $103,000 he loaned to his own campaign. He was paying 10.24 percent interest on the credit card balances, an amount that was also charged to the campaign, according to campaign disclosure documents and a Miller spokesman. In his personal financial statement in October, Miller reported that he had debts between $35,003 and $80,000 on three charge accounts. On two of those with Bank of America, the interest rate was 10.24 percent.
