13. Apparently even the DNC doesn't mind this stuff.....
Here in Idaho during 2008 campaigns a known previously serving Republican, Walt Minnick, got on the Dem ticket, won the caucus/primary and was VERY strongly supported by the DNC. He won and proceeded to vote with Republicans something like 98% of the time, was the only Dem endorsed by TeaParty and as I said, DNC and other related Dem Parties threw $100 of thousands of dollars in his direction to get him elected.

I'm reasonably sure this isn't illegal, and I'm reasonably sure the DNC and DLC don't mind.
