    7. Tad Devine was hired to “engineer” a “protest candidacy”. No mention or question in article why he would want to or why that paid well.

    8. Devine made about $10 million working for the campaign. The story is it was all unprecedented grass roots donations.

    9. Okay. The usual thing that was reported. He made at least $10 mil.

    10. Oh wait. The Feds are here. They’re like “Ummm $10 million isn’t accounted for. It’s unnamed. Care to share?” They don’t.

    Union soldier James Daniel Gardner was born on this day, September 16, in 1839.

    Excerpt from Wikipedia:

    Gardner was born on September 16, 1839, in Gloucester, Virginia. He worked as an oysterman before enlisting in the Union Army from Yorktown, Virginia, on September 15, 1863. He joined Company I of the 36th Regiment United States Colored Troops Troops as a private. His enlistment papers recorded his surname as “Gardiner.”

    At the Battle of Chaffin’s Farm, Virginia, on September 29, 1864, Gardner’s regiment was among a division of black troops assigned to attack the Confederate defenses at New Market Heights. The defenses consisted of two lines of abatis and one line of palisades manned by Brigadier General John Gregg’s Texas Brigade. The attack was met with intense Confederate fire; over fifty percent of the black troops were killed, captured, or wounded. During the assault, Gardner advanced ahead of his unit into the Confederate fortifications, “shot a rebel officer who was on the parapet rallying his men, and then ran him through with his bayonet.”

    The day after the battle, Gardner was promoted to sergeant. Several months later and three days before the end of the war, on April 6, 1865, he was issued the Medal of Honor for his actions at Chaffin’s Farm.
