    A close inspection of the campaign finance report filed just before Saturday’s midnight deadline indicates the haul came at a steep price and that the campaign was still not dedicating resources to catching up on building the staff and field organization that all previous presidential efforts have required.

    Though the campaign touted an $80 million figure for its July fundraising, just $36.7 million of that total went directly to the campaign. The rest came in through joint fundraising vehicles with the Republican National Committee and state parties. At least $9.5 million of that money is off limits for spending on the election because it’s designated for the RNC’s convention, headquarters and legal accounts. Plus, the RNC is considering spending its money down-ballot instead of supporting Trump as tensions boil over between the party’s apparatus and its defiant nominee.

    It’s the Ben Carson scam all over again. Or the Newt scam. Or the Herman Cain scam. Over and over again.

    Except this time Trump is using some of his funds to, in essence, pay himself. He’s utilizing Trump jets, Trump hotels, etc.

    You stay classy, San Diego.
