My opinion is you can't blame them, and two they're supposdly falling all guidelines set forth by laws for candidates. I think there is actually a section in my liquidity management book that focuses on doing exactly what they are doing. They are taking in as much money as they can and waiting as long as they can to pay their bills. Hell this is exactly what Dell does so well if im not mistaken.

Jason Raper-the big mouth in class......

My company does the same thing. The idea is to keep yourself just enough ahead so that the creditors don't cut you off. The problem that it poses is that when I look to change vendors, I must explain my company credit history for things that have no control over. Always fun and very embarrassing!

Here's the BS that I get from AP when I contact them and deliver my standard butt chewing for....hmmmmm.....not paying my damn bills and adding interest expense to my income statement.....

"Mr Raper....our cash flows are structured to be invested and tied into new business ventures. Paying your bills ontime would slow the growth rate that WE as a company have established for ourselves...." LET ME SHOW YOU MY MIDDLE FINGER AND THE GROWTH RATE IT IS EXTENDING TO MY SATSIFACTION OF SHOWING IT TO YOU.....(sorry I am bitter after 9 years with these idiots)

Also, to make things worse, my contract is the top revenue and income producing contract in the whole damn company.....I am the one who sold it as well. I engineered it, sold it, and run it. I have to take the hit on my income statement for other contracts that are not doing so well. I love it when we score a new account in my contract and Phoenix gets the revenue for the account. And guess who's bonus gets affected for this extended courtesy? You guessed it...OL UNCLE JASON......SORRY......that statement brought an "acid flashback" of neverending BS back to me for a moment.

I am sure there is a thread to these stories but occasionally I feel like I have walked in on the second reel of a four reel movie.....the point of the article was that campaigns 'accrue' contributions when it helps them whether they have been received or not. No doubt they delay recognition when that helps also.

Jason

I was just responding to a point that Jordan was making in his statement.
