Whose money?

Big buzz today is Reid's opponent in Nevada, the seriously unhinged Sharron Angle, raised a cool $14mil in the last quarter. My first question was, who the hell is donating to this crackpot? Surely not the nearly broke residents of Las Vegas.

Chris Cilliza broke the news, but don't give him the traffic. First Read quotes the gist and TPM runs down the other Tea Party favs who pulled in the big bucks from that army of the usefully fooled.

No one has the answer to my question yet. Apparently Angle hasn't filed the FEC disclosures, but suddenly, the utility of villifying Reid and Pelosi in the GOP ads nationally makes more sense. The joke will be on the GOP though if it works and the Dems manage to keep a majority in the Senate. Keeping the majority and losing Reid is a win/win in my book.
