Indeed they are. They make up a large portion of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, a large portion of San Franciciso Bay Area peninsula, and a large portion of the south Puget Sound in Seattle-Tacoma metro area.

Hmm


And a large portion of WeHo. The Fairfax District is pretty much WeHo with a little bit of Hollywood.
They also make up a large portion of Pasadena, BH, and Brentwood.

Tulsi is not running for re-election to the House in 2020. There is a better option for District 2, a Hawaii State Senator by the name of Kaiali'i Kahele. He's a much better option than Tulsi Gabbard to represent District 2 in the House.

So Ms. Gabbard, who hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of winning a single state in the primaries, has decided to dump her political career in favor of tilting at the presidential windmill.

Planning a book deal? A lobbying position? A seat on the board of a Russian oil conglomerate?

We'll know soon enough.

Maybe she knows candidates can convert their campaign funds to personal income after they lose, so she's just looking for a payday.

You sure about that?
I don't theenk so, Quicks Draw.



Of course, with the FEC currently castrated due to funding issues, there isn't much they can do if someone actually DID decide to "buy a yacht".

How about this. Hillary actually loves Tulsi but Tulsi, currently, is not doing real well. So, they COLLUDED! The plan is simply, they agreed that Tulsi was simply not getting the attention she deserved so Hillary there the collusion with Russia at her. It worked! Now folks are writing and talking about Tulsi! Entertainers have known, for a very long time, that attention is the answer to popularity and that applies to politicians too. Our Dear Leader, the jackass Trump, knows, and practices this and, now, so does Tulsi.

I am personally awaiting the next Tulsi bomb with a bit of excitement!

To be fair. Corporations can write off bunches of stuff that are interesting:
private jets
politics
trips to exotic climes
pretty models that have skills
etc.

So, why can't a politician buy a yacht, and have his picture using said yacht to travel around meeting supporters. This would, of course, be better if it was a national election or for a position in a coastal state. Might even be cheaper than hotels!

There’s many ways to fleece fundraising dollars, one of which was the skimming of state fundraising dollars into the campaign coffers of the Democratic presidential nominee while starving the state campaign committees of much needed monies.
It’s one of the many high grade professional Grifts that go on with each party and is rarely reported about or investigated in the news.

IMO, it was one of the key reasons for losing the 2016 election, that and running an extremely unsatisfying candidate.
