Did Gary Johnson scam people?

Where did all of Gary Johnson's money go?

If we look at opensecrets, we see he raised over $2.3 million, spent $1.8 million on "administration", and a measly $13.6k on media.

http://www.opensecrets.org/pres12/ex...2&id=N00033226

But if we look at other third party candidates, for example Jill Stein, she raised $893k and spent less than $225k on administration, with $260k going to media. Randall Terry raised a bit over a tenth of Johnson ($270k) and still outspent him on media by over five times ($80k). Every candidate I can find spent a comparatively huge fraction of their money on media.

So what did Johnson buy? Where did all his supporters' money go?

Didn't he pay $2 million to consultants who happen to be his friends?

An earlier report suggests attention was drawn to this by an anonymous whistleblower via e-mail: http://www.buzzfeed.com/rosiegray/jo...ending-charges

The Johnson campaign countered that some of these "advisor expenses" encompassed things like travel and certain kinds of media buys.

Either their reporting is ****ed or they made a few rich friends richer. $13.6k is barely enough to advertise in a single city. At least it wasn't as blatant as the Good Doctor, meaning, a campaign composed primarily of nieces, nephews, grandsons, and daughter-in-laws. Must be a talented family o

It's worse, he stole money directly from the middle class by selling snake oil.
