The Great Ron Paul Bait-n-Switch

So Ron Paul is scaling back his campaign. What's he going to do with all his money?

Well, 30 million dollars will practically guarantee he keeps his Congressional seat, probably in perpetuity, or however long his life lasts (I know, I know, the rEVOLution is eternal.)

And before anyone suggests that he can't use money donated to one campaign to benefit another, check out this. He can't transfer any money while he's actively seeking two offices simultaneously, but once he gives up on his Republican nomination campaign, no laws prohibit him from using the money to secure his seat in the House of Representatives.

Kind of ingenious, actually. Not that I'm accusing him of, you know, planning this from the start.
