You think Florida was bad enough when it came to wall-to-wall advertising for the GOP primary, to the point were regular TV programs were cut short to make room for even more ads. The money spent was ridiculous (See The Ubiquitous Persuaders for a full chapter on political advertising… Buy the fucking thing!) Anyway, did you see the story about how down in Mexico, a government official was searched at an airport and was found to have $1.9 million in cash in his luggage. When questioned, he said it was to “Pay the Ad Agency.” Holy shit, these guys must be using Draft/FCB. Loved this quote… An advertising trade group official said big cash payments “are not a common practice” in the business. And said advertising firms often wait some time to get paid or are paid in partial increments as work is done. Try fucking freelancing, mate.
His lawer said the "Fix" was in from the Chicago mob!
