- "Bush - Cheney 2000 held a bank account designated "Bush-Cheney 2000, Inc. - Media." After the November 7, 2000 presidential election, the Committee redesignated this bank account "Bush-Cheney 2000, Inc. - Recount Fund" and used the account to raise funds and pay costs associated with the recount. However, the Committee failed to include that activity in disclosure reports filed with the Commission."
- "Filings submitted to the IRS in 2002 and 2003 suggest the recount account raised approximately $11 million and spent approximately $13 million."
- March 19, 2004: Poster DHinMI at the Daily Kos reports FEC filings for Bush-Cheney '04 Inc. reveal that the "Bush Campaign [is] Paying Firm That Specializes In Paramilitaries." The paramilitary firm is Vance International. DHinMI writes that "There are plenty of things a campaign must pay for, but the Bush campaign may be the first presidential campaign to employ a company that specializes in paramilitary protection." ... and poses the question to the Bush regime: "What possible legitimate use do you have for a firm that specializes in high-tech surveillance, personal investigations, and paramilitary protection?"
