Donald Trump has been saying for weeks that he's put $100 million of his own money into his campaign, even going so far as to attempt to shame Hillary Clinton for not contributing some of her own money to her campaign. Just yesterday Trump told CNN "I will have more than $100 million in the campaign. And I am prepared to go much more than that."
With the news tonight that Trump's fundraising has dropped off a cliff in recent weeks, I was intrigued by this note from TPM Reader JC who repeats that he's been hit with no fewer than 50 emails from Trump, various wastrel sons, and other Trump entities just since October 21st (apparently many more in his spam folder). Everybody's getting hit pretty hard for money these days. But that seems like a lot.
Note that JC is not a foreign parliamentarian. So at least there's that.

In almost every election you see isolated reports of voting machines 'changing' people's votes. In virtually every case, as Texas election authorities are explaining now, it's human error.
