Charge it!

NPR reports that the Michigan Democratic Party has found a new way to raise campaign funds: their own credit card:
Michigan’s Democratic Party will ask caucus goers Saturday to apply for “affinity” credit cards as a way to raise campaign money. The party will receive $45 for each person who signs up for the special card, plus 1 percent of the value of purchases made on it. Rick Pluta of Michigan Public Radio reports.
Of course, since it’s a Democratic party card, no matter how much you charge, the bill gets sent to somebody else.
