GOP Lawmaker Funded Failed Democratic Primary Bid

"Fueled with $43,000 in secret money, Rep. David Rivera (R-FL) helped run a shadow campaign that might have broken federal laws in last week's Democratic primary against his political nemesis Joe Garcia," the Miami Herald reports.

"As part of the effort, a political unknown named Justin Lamar Sternad campaigned against Garcia by running a sophisticated mail campaign that Rivera helped orchestrate and fund, campaign vendors said. Among the revelations: The mailers were often paid in envelopes stuffed with crisp hundred-dollar bills."
