The Globe notes that, at the end of August, Andrea Silbert wrote her campaign a check for $25,000.
A curious move, IMHO. Did it really matter that much if her campaign account’s balance was $494,142.13, rather than $519,142.13, at the end of August? Isn’t the former enough to buy the ads she needs?
Also, why do it on August 29, rather than waiting three days ’til September 1 (when it would remain away from the prying eyes of reporters and bloggers ’til after the primary)? This way, it generates odd items like this one, and things like this at the Globe: “in a debate last week she said that her family of five is ‘basically underinsured.’ … So if she cant afford adequate medical care, her critics ask, where is all of this money coming from?”
Rookie mistake? Inside baseball that no one will care about? Other thoughts (with or without baseball-related metaphors)?
