Not necessarily the finance portion but rather the misuse of information or things procured as a result of an official position. Like the example in my post, you can't use certain things/say certain things in campaigns because of laws like that. I was merely suggesting that if the OP is really outraged about it that one possible avenue is laws such as these (for instance, maybe when they go to the range the candidate is there and starts asking for donations, endorsements etc).
And again, I think the gesture is actually quite nice (depending on certain things). I would probably go. The story about the list being printed in the papers infuriates me to no end, though.
