The Dick Morris Scam?

Paul Waldman takes another look at Dick Morris and his Super PAC, "an organization whose entire purpose is to raise money, and its expenditures involve raising money and finding new donors. And not, say, getting Mitt Romney elected."

"Perhaps there's a more innocent explanation for all this, but the way it looks is that 1) People (should we call them 'marks'?) donate money to Morris' super PAC; 2) he pays that money to Newsmax for 'fundraising'; then 3) Newsmax turns around and pays the money back to Morris, for access to his list of donors. Perhaps Newsmax takes a cut, or perhaps the list is their cut, because these people can then become marks for all kinds of future scams."
