How do you feel about Paul Singer (known as The Vulture) funding Romney & Ryan's run for the Presidency of the United States?

Asked by Linda_Owl (7707 points ) September 30th, 2012

Paul Singer has contributed a tremendous amount of money to the Republican Party. He is known as The Vulture due to a lawsuit that he filed that took $400 million dollars from an organization that was intended for the treatment of Cholera in the Congo – this lawsuit was deemed illegal by the UK & Germany & Holland, but the money was taken by Paul Singer’s hedge fund & went into his account.

I think it is another example of the fact that the wealthiest Americans think that they can do whatever they want to in the United States & in the world. But I have been wrong before – tell me what YOU think.

While I disagree with his politics, I certainly feel it is his right as a human being (not as a corporation) to spend his money as he sees fit. Or perhaps I should say “throw away” his money as he wishes.

Said another way – I can’t think any worse of him. So it really doesn’t matter.

Okay, this guy is scum, but I am glad he is wasting his money on this election. I am always glad to hear about millionaires pouring money into elections, because it ends up helping the economy. Meg Whitman put $140 Million of her own money in an election try she had no chance of winning.

I feel the same as I do about Sheldon Adelson, who has said he needs a Romney Department of Justice to not prosecute him for bribing foreign officials and money laundering..He admitted last week that he is spending millions on Romney “for defense”.

He must be expecting a return on his investment.

Are these the sort of people the Tea Party support?

About the same as I feel about Immelt’s backing of Obama in 08.
