Its one hell of a high bar for Trump news worth posting round here, since there's no need to repost the inanity that he's accomplished so far, but this one takes the cake:
WaPo - Trump refuses to pay his pollster. WTF?:
Donald Trump's hiring of pollster Tony Fabrizio in May was viewed as a sign that the real estate mogul was finally bringing seasoned operatives into his insurgent operation.
But the Republican presidential nominee appears to have taken issue with some of the services provided by the veteran GOP strategist, who has advised candidates from 1996 GOP nominee Bob Dole to Florida Gov. Rick Scott. The Trump campaign's latest Federal Election Commission report shows that it is disputing nearly $767,000 that Fabrizio's firm says it is still owed for polling.
No wonder he's campaigning in Minnesota instead of trying to shore up Ohio and Michigan: Trump is fucking over the one guy who he needs to provide him with the data necessary to run a campaign. I wonder if he's even getting any data anymore, or if Fabrizio is hanging him out to dry for non-payment?
Even though he was hired in May, the campaign did not make any payments to Fabrizio until September, when his firm received nearly $624,000, federal filings show. Trump's finance reports show that the campaign owes the firm an additional $55,300 on top of the $766,756.67 in debt that it is contesting.
This is so half-assed that the only person who could possibly support Trump at this point is a fucking idiot with no clue how to do business who has never had any job where he was required to do a decent day's work.
