This week’s Money Monday is part weekend recap, part BIG money!

Blunders, Ads, and Other: A look at the 2012 Election Cycle

On October, 31 2012 I embarked on one the scariest things I have come across in a long time. It was my turn to present to the Ball State University chapter of NABJ. I was afraid – just a week before election day – taking a look at the blunders, ads, and other gaffes of the candidates would envoke total chaos.

Baker created for my presentation, Blunders, Ads, and Other. Oh! My name is Chris J. Taylor and I endorse this message.
