I thought it was going to be a story about how the money was still there.

What money? From what I heard the other day the DNC borrowed money at the end of the campaign so they are going into the next cycle w/ a deficit/loan to pay off.

As for how he did it, it seems pretty obvious from the story. Someone working at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee opened a bank account with the same company initials, DSCC. They pocket a few checks written out to "DSCC" and deposit them into their phony DSCC account instead of the real DSCC account.

Eventually someone notices the real DSCC account is coming up short from reported donations.

What about the war chest for Lawyerpalooza '04? I thought both parties were gearing up for protracted post-election legal battles.

So, let's recap.

Some guy creates a bank account with DSCC, but this DSCC is a fake DSCC, because the real DSCC is a totally different DSCC than the fake DSCC. The man deposits checks to an account named DSCC, and even though the checks were written out to "DSCC", it wasn't the real DSCC, and who would have known if it was the real DSCC or the fake DSCC, because both accounts have the same letters.

I bet SD-6 (aka, the Bush Administration) is to blame.
