18. This is truly obscene.

Can you imagine being a working-class Republican and donating a hard-earned check for $50 or $100 to Romney's campaign, only to find out that he gave $192,440 in bonuses to his senior staffers?

Incidentally, the amount according to the NYT article was $192,440:

Another set of expenditures is likely to draw grumbles from Mr. Romney’s allies given his campaign’s current struggles: The day after accepting the Republican nomination, Mr. Romney gave what appeared to be $192,440 in bonuses to senior campaign staff members. At least nine aides received payments on Aug. 31 well in excess of their typical biweekly salaries, including $25,000 each for Matthew Rhoades, the campaign manager; Lanhee Chen, a policy adviser; and Katie Biber, the general counsel. Rich Beeson, the political director, received $37,500.
