[FREEBEACON] New York Gov. Andrew Sonny Cuomo (D.) reported over $200,000 in income off book royalties in 2016, bringing his total earnings off his 2014 memoir, which sold just 3,200 copies, to $783,000, according to a Buffalo News report.
HarperCollins initially printed 200,000 copies of Cuomo's book, "All Things Possible," but nearly all of them remain on the shelves, according to book sale tracker NPD BookScan. Cuomo, already paid $565,000 for the book in 2013 and 2014, somehow brought in an additional $218,100 off the book last year, according to tax filings shown to news hounds earlier this week.
The Buffalo News reports that his earnings indicate that Cuomo has made about $245 for each book sold. You can buy any of my books a lot cheaper than that.
These Beltway Bandits are financial geniuses or so crooked they have to screw their socks on in the morning. I'm going with the latter. Hillary turned a $1,000 investment into $100,000 from cattle futures after only ten months. She and Bill went from being dead, bare-a$$ed broke to worth billions in a short time.
He's not just a fool, he's also wrong. Yeeeaaarrrggghhhhh!

Hate speech is like racist and Nazi. It means whatever a Liberal doesn't like.
I'm amazed the Democrats haven't created an online dictionary that can be updated on the fly with new Dem approved definitions so all the mindless liberal trolls can link to the definition and declare online victory.
[FREEBEACON] West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin (D.) has collected over $550,000 for his reelection campaign this year but only $7,900 of it came from donors inside the state, his latest campaign filing shows.
Manchin, whose Senate seat is up for grabs in 2018, reported just five donors with West Virginia addresses on his April quarterly report to the Federal Election Commission, which covers the period from January 1 through March 31.
The largest contributions came from what appears to be a single family in Glenville, West Virginia. Three executives for Waco Oil and Gas--I.L. Morris, Douglas Morris, and Ian Morris--combined to give $6,400 to Manchin on March 31.
Manchin received an additional $1,000 from an executive in Charleston, and $500 from a retired woman in Huntington.
Manchin raked in far more from donors out of his state, such as $95,600 from Texas and $32,300 from New York.
Not surprising. It's a year out from 2018, there was just an expensive election cycle, and nobody knows if he's gonna stay a Donk or switch parties.

Another area where the swamp could use some draining. Only people ought to be able to contribute to campaigns, not companies. People ought to only be able to contribute to campaigns in the district they have their primary residence in, and they ought to be limited to one day's pay for the average income in the district.
[FREEBEACON] CNN host Jake Tapper accused the mainstream media of being too friendly with former President Barack Obama I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money... during his administration.
In a candid interview with GQ published Tuesday, Tapper acknowledged that after his tough interviews of administration figures like Kellyanne Conway, he picked up a following from many critics of President Donald Trump ...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States... "It's nice to be recognized, but I also know that a lot of the people who are happy with me now are not going to be happy with me in four to eight years," he predicted.
Tapper said that he was just as tough on Obama, and earned his share of grief for it at the time.
"A lot of people sending me nice tweets today were cursing me when I was asking questions about Benghazi in 2012," he said.
"President B.O. was not friendly to the press, but the press was very friendly to President B.O.," Tapper told GQ. "I mean, President B.O. did not like me, and I understand why. I was a pain in his ass and I didn't drink the Kool-Aid, and, you know, a lot of other people did."
Tapper has made similar indictments before, saying that the mainstream media had a "cultural bias" that was more complicated that just liberal bias.
"I think there are a lot of hard-working news hounds in NYC and DC who have never fired a gun, or never worked a 9-5 manual labor job, or lived in the middle of the country, or worried about their next paycheck, or have anyone in their family who serves in the military," he said during a 2013 Reddit Ask Me Anything.
"Yes, I do think there is bias," he continued. "Reluctant to name names though because I try to be collegial."
Tapper is correct, the MSM looked like a bunch of fools as they drooled and salivated over O'bummer. One of the biggest idiots was Chris "Tingling-up-my-leg" Matthews who had a man-crush on Obumble.
