Ted Cruz is under fire for allegedly spending more than $150,000 in campaign contributions to buy his own book.
A financial report obtained by Forbes reveals Cruz’s campaign purchased thousands of copies of “One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History in September” from Books-A-Million, a U.S. chain.
Documents also reveal Cruz received a $320,000 advance from publisher Regnery for the book.
The end-of-the-year report reveals Cruz’s campaign committee bought $40,000 worth of books from Books-A-Million two weeks after it was published. It made two more purchases before the end of 2020: one for $1,500, and another for $111,900, per the report.
Is buying copies of one’s own book any different than buying YouTube views or Twitter followers?
