Clueless nonmembers of the chattering classes might wonder why it’s a big deal what a political consultant got paid by a loaded political candidate who is hardly a rube and who’d done two prior runs with the same consultant. Or they might wonder why journalists seem so scandalized that outside millions couldn’t buy an election, when usually journalists pretend to be scandalized that they can.
