FL GOP Treasurer Has High Holiday -- With Campaign's Cash

Oh, man! You ever feel like getting away from it all?

Well, so did the treasurer for Florida GOP Congressional candidate Nancy Detert. And he took her campaign war chest with him!

Randy Maddox transferred nearly $100,000 from the campaign to his personal account and went to Buenos Aires, where he blew through $27,000 in about a week. Asked how he could spend so much money in so little time, Maddox's lawyer said, "In all truthfulness, details are sketchy."

Here's a clue: Detert said her treasurer is checked in to a Florida rehab clinic.

But this is the kicker -- federal law prohibits contributions over $2,100 to a campaign, so Detert is trying to figure out how to get her money back without seeing laws broken a second time.

We will note without comment that Detert's running for Rep. Katherine Harris' (R) seat, which she's vacating to run for Senate.

Thanks to reader LI for the tip.

In all seriousness, I hope the guy is successful in his recovery.
