    Why can't she just admit she made a mistake, apologize for it and do her best to make amends. Is that asking to much from a politician?

    Part and parcel of campaigns, her new attorney says, does he. Maybe he should bring himself up to speed before he seeks out the press. This is Mia's third go around on the campaign trail. She should know the rules inside out by now. I haven't seen any reports of any other incumbents having "misunderstandings" about campaign finance laws. Just Mia. Time for her to go home.

    Where's her "old" attorney? Maybe has too much integrity to defend her "misunderstanding" of campaign fund usage.

    Does it make a difference is its one dollar or ten thousand dollars, swindling is swindling its all the same. Can we really trust a candidate who's irresponsible for 10 thousand dollars ....

    Trying to make a molehill out of a mountain.

    Sad commentary that shady shenanigans are "part and parcel" of political campaigns.

    Love does nothing of any value.
    She does not return calls or letters.
    She is not accessible.
    She is not a representative of her constituents--she is a representative of her party.
    Out with her.

    Time for a change! Bring Love home!

    Love's new attorney is paid to argue on her behalf. The problem is, why don't all federal campaigns have the same issue? They don't. They often have relatively minor issues, but Love's violations are quite large in scope. Don't let Love or her hired DC lawyer pull the wool over your eyes. There is a problem here. Add to the fact that she is not a first time candidate. She and her campaign team should know better. They have a duty to know better. Win at all cost? Is that really the kind of person that Utah wants as a representative to the country? If so, it reflects on Utah.

    "relabeling" another $370,000" - Alternative facts. Seriously wrong.

    Memo to Love: when you have a chance to let a story rest, you don’t roll out a DC lawyer to draw attention once again to your election violations. This curious move combined with an odd Fox interview in which you play the race card in such an unusual way underscore the lack of savvy that has punctuated your time in Congress.

    She is a symptom of a bigger problem. Failure of and incompetency of Congress to get all the $ out of our elections and return them to the people. As it is, once they get to D.C. they are bought and paid for. They no longer represent the average American. And, they are ok with that or they would have changed that. Speaks volumes about who they are.
