    Ugh. I understand what I think was the intent - allowing candidates to draw funds to support themselves while campaigning, but this is abusive. I mean, the hardest and quietest part of running is doing so while trying to find or maintain employment, and so I can't be too upset. But this is not that and is bipartisan unacceptable. Well, unacceptable to everybody except those in office.

    I happily transferred the remains of my campaign account to the state party fund, where it could continue to be used the way donors intended.

    Edit: the rest of the article makes me feel a little better, knowing that many are not abusive with it
