Van Hilleary as Optimus Prime

Today's Chattanooga News Free Press reports that GOP senate candidate Van Hilleary has $7,600 on hand in his Tennessee Leadership PAC "set up in the wake of the Jack Abramhoff scandal to raise and donate money for charity."
The CNFP reports that the PAC was "announced in January as a way to collect money for charity because Mr. Hilleary could not return money given by Mr. Abramhoff or the American Indian tribal clients he represented."
Hilleary's campaign has said that the PAC will make donations to the American Indian College Fund based in Denver. PAC treasurer J. Sam Daniels of Charlotte, North Carolina, said that the PAC has raised $7,600 and already sent a contribution to the Fund. However, in today's story the CNFP quotes a spokesperson for the Fund who denies having received any $$ from Hilleary's PAC.
Who's zooming who? It's anyone's guess.
But in the event that donations do not in fact ever make it to the American Indian College Fund from Hilleary's PAC, I offer up the following suggestion:
This week there's an auction on EBay of some awesome vintage transformer action figures. At a going bid of $45 for one of the cooler transformer characters - Optimus Prime - Hilleary could take his $7,600 and buy 168 of these figures to hand out to Tennessee voters - sending a not-so-subtle message that he'll say or do anyhing to get elected, even if it means transforming the truth in the process.

If Hilleary had any sincerity about shedding the taint of Abramoff, he would simply write a check to the charity. Vintage Van -- can't tell the truth, can't stand up straight.

He lied about making a charitable gift. To help kids--native American kids, a group that knows from lying--go to college.

That's beyond low.
