Fudging their fundraising numbers



Attorney General candidate Dan Gelber is not the only one to issue a misleading press release falsely suggesting that he had outraised rival Dave Aronberg, when he was actually padding his total by counting in-kind contributions.

The issue comes up in the Republican attorney general primary. If you look at actual hard dollar contributions, Kottkamp actually raised $232,000, Pam Bondi raised $222,000 and Holly Benson $182,000.
