Yes it is. Not going to hide it from anyone who asks. I honestly mismanaged my campaign fund account and mixed funds with personal then wrongfully tried to cover it up. My conscience would not let me live with my self, so I made a call to the audit department to let them know what I did and humbly took my punishment because I was wrong. I did not fight it as I too would want justice for anyone else daring enough to do something as stupid as I did. Could I have gotten off with a slap on the wrist, as many others do you see at local and national levels? Probably, but it would not be right! I blame no-one or the "system" at all. It was all on my shoulders and I hope others that do what I did, take their medicine too. I have a long and proud history of service and kindness before that debacle and will continue to going forward! It didn't take long for many in my district to get behind me to make a run again after all was said and done. But how could they even consider or better yet, my own-self conscience, ever consider serving again in that capacity?! Politics indeed, such a strange world.......

You made a mistake served your time. Now it is time to concentrate on the future. If you have time educate yourself with the suggestions on these forums. There are a lot of good books out there. Vanguard website is very good.

Dave, your honesty is sincerely appreciated here. Election rules and regulations are like a rat's nest, and tough to comply with.

Anyways, you've found a collection here of sharp people who have helped me a great deal over the years. Nords always has sound advice.

I'd recommend several books: The Millionaire Next Door (the numbers are a bit dated but the principles are not) The Millionaire Teacher, How a Second Grader Beat Wall Street, The Four Pillars of Investing, A Random Walk Down Wall Street, Your Money and Your Brain, Predictably Irrational, and Thinking, Fast and Slow.

The last three are only peripherally about money, but they are about the psychology of why so many people have a hard time with saving/investing. But if you don't understand what's going on in your head you'll have a hard time of it too.

Read those books - slowly, there's a lot to absorb but it does come easily but slowly - and you will do better than 90% of professional money managers. It isn't rocket science, it's actually pretty simple.
