I am not surprised that it is common to hire family members for campaigns. The candidates want people they can trust to be loyal. I don't see anything wrong with it, but the family member ought to do some work.


And perhaps there should actually be a campaign.


This practice is actually a pretty obnoxious way to get around rules that prohibit a Member of Congress from using campaign funds to enrich himself/herself. If the family member has a legitimate professional history of managing campaigns or providing a service it is one thing, but in McInnis's case, I think this rationale is dubious. It doesn't look good, and as Lumberjack says, at least there ought to be a real campaign.
