The nonfunctional Demo version

I thought Oklahoma Democrats were in a bad way, having had to lay off their entire paid staff, but it looks like Florida Democrats aren't doing much better:

Broke and without enough money in the bank to pay its bills after the end of the month, the Florida Democratic Party has now been slapped with a lien by the Internal Revenue Service for failing to pay payroll and Social Security taxes in 2003.

The state party’s budget and finance committee voted Tuesday to ask for a new audit to account for more than $900,000 it believes somehow disappeared from the books during the 2003-2004 calendar years when the party was led by Scott Maddox, who is now seeking its nomination for governor.

In defense of Oklahoma's Lisa Pryor, at least she doesn't seem to be running for office.

Having just failed one attempt, she's still licking her wounds.

I can just see the Florida GOP's campaign ads next year: "And they want to get their hands on our state treasury?"

Of course conversely I can see the Dems with a great campaign add showing an elderly Jewish couple saying "I voted for Pat WHO?"
