Sen. Clinton To Pay Off Vilsack's Campaign Debt

Now if this doesn't sound just a little bit fishy...

Sen. Clinton To Pay Off Vilsack's Campaign Debt:
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack gave Sen. Hillary Clinton his endorsement for her presidential campaign.

The Clinton campaign has promised Vilsack to help pay off a $400,000 campaign debt he built up during his run for the White House.

A representative for Clinton's campaign said they are not sure how their campaign will do that. They concede that at some point, Clinton will have to contact her supporters.

The campaign said there is no connection between Vilsack's endorsement and their commitment to help pay off his campaign debt."

Same thing occurred in 2004 when former Illinois senator Carol Moseley Braun endorsed Howard Dean for president. Dean's campaign agreed to help her raise money to pay off her debt. They also gave her a $20,000 a month travel stipend to help her spread word of the endorsement.
