FEC-Cain used campaign money to buy autobiography from Co. he owns

“Jonathan D. Salant and Joshua Green of Bloomberg News reported that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain used campaign funds to buy books he wrote from his own company.”

“’All candidates publish books and they offer them as premiums to donors, but most candidates aren’t buying them from their own companies’, Bill Allison, editorial director at the Washington-based Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan group that tracks political money said. ‘It raises the question of his campaign contributions ending up in his own pocket.’”
