Pathetic Loser Mike Pence Demands Taxpayers Bail Out His Embarrassing Presidential Campaign

The disgraced former Vice President Mike Pence has sought public funding to help bail out his embarrassing presidential campaign.

According to a report from The New York Times, Pence sought public funds last December after realizing that his campaign could no longer meet its obligations.

The report states:

Former Vice President Mike Pence sought public financing for his failed presidential primary campaign, a highly unusual move that if successful would make him the first Republican in more than a decade to receive such funds, according to Federal Election Commission documents that have not previously been disclosed.

Starting in the post-Watergate era, the federal government has allowed presidential candidates to apply for and receive public dollars. But the program has become all but obsolete as it imposes strict spending limits on anyone who participates, at a time when the cost of nationwide campaigning has skyrocketed. Even applying for the money is generally seen as a sign of desperation because the limits of the program are so onerous.
