www.cnbc.com How Donald Trump's criminal conviction boosted his campaign fundraising machine

Donald Trump's political operation has spent more than $100 million in legal fees to date. But will it matter in the presidential race?

How Donald Trump's criminal conviction boosted his campaign fundraising machine

"Since he left the White House in 2020, Trump has taken advantage of a little-known loophole in campaign finance law to pay for his mounting legal costs, which Federal Election Commission filings show amount to around $90,000 per day over the past three years.”

“Campaign disclosures show Trump has used a web of political action committees, or PACs, to funnel donor money to a leadership PAC he founded called Save America, which is primarily paying his legal bills. These groups are separate from his official campaign and not subject to the same restrictions by the FEC.”

www.wired.com An AI Bot Is (Sort of) Running for Mayor in Wyoming

Wyoming’s secretary of state wants the county to reject its candidacy, but the AI bot’s human “meat puppet” says everything is in order.

An AI Bot Is (Sort of) Running for Mayor in Wyoming

Victor Miller is running for mayor of Cheyenne, Wyoming, with an unusual campaign promise: If elected, he will not be calling the shots—an AI bot will,” Wired reports.

“VIC, the Virtual Integrated Citizen, is a ChatGPT-based chatbot that Miller created. And Miller says the bot has better ideas—and a better grasp of the law—than many people currently serving in government.”

“Because it’s not legal for a bot to run for office, Miller says he is technically the one on the ballot, at least on the candidate paperwork filed with the state.”
