And Now Feinstein: Senator Says Campaign Funds “Wiped Out”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) tells Politico that her campaign coffers were "wiped out" by her longtime treasurer, accused to embezzling funds from the accounts of a slew of California Democrats.

“I was wiped out too, we don’t know how much,” Feinstein said.

Her campaign reported about $5 million in the bank at the end of June, but those were the amounts in FEC  reports and not from an audit of the funds.
