Mitt Romney Aides Get Big Post-Election Payments To Their Companies

The campaign of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made large payments to the companies of some top Romney aides in the final five weeks of 2012.

In the year-end campaign reports filed on Thursday, the Romney campaign -- through Romney for President and Romney Victory -- reported spending $27 million from Nov. 27 through Dec. 31. Thirty-eight percent of that spending went to just three companies with close ties to Romney.

The largest was a $4.75 million payment to VG LLC, a fundraising company set up by Romney finance chairman Spencer Zwick, who is known as the sixth Romney son. Targeted Victory, the digital consulting firm run by Romney adviser Zac Moffatt, received $3.84 million in waning weeks of 2012. And SCM Associates, a Massachusetts-based fundraising company run by Stephen Meyer, received $1.7 million.

While the timing of these payments -- after the end of the campaign -- appears irregular, it is not uncommon for campaigns to settle accounts after elections for previous debts.

2. I'm guessing these aren't the same aides who got stranded election night

trying to pay cab fare with an already canceled Romney campaign credit card.
