is it legal though?

I saw some of these a few days ago and they were set up by other people, supposedly collecting money for his defense.

how many of these are honest and how many are scams?

and even those honest ones, that intent to hand over all proceeds to him, are those legal? meaning does it obey the ToS of the web site? are these a way to get around the political limit donations?

it's perfectly legal to set up funds for defense and it's within GFM's guidelines

They can give it to one of his Super PACs (Not to be confused with an ordinary PAC.) in a "straw donation" through an intermediary LLC to make it anonymous.

There are no contribution limits and the money can be spent on almost anything without penalty.

I think the question of legality was concerning whether or not any/some GFMs were legitimate.

How can one be sure the monies from these are actually getting to P45*?

Not that it would bother me if most or all were just money grabs for scammers not actually supporting P45*, as opposed to scammers who are actively funneling cult members monies to him.

Isn't there some restriction(s) on donations once candidacy is declared?

Or is that because they're campaign donations, from the jump?






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

The more money the lemmings send directly to Trump's coffers, the less gets sent to other Republican candidates or the RNC. So let him collect, you know he isn't going to share.

Currently, the GFM account is just over $900k.

Multiply that by about 500 and the judgements against him are covered. Not that he would use it to pay those off.

I do think it's a good question whether some of those are people with no intention of helping Trump, taking advantage of the MAGAt suckers.
