No Brainer

A woman has been caught embezzling money from her company. A life insurance company. Ironically, my parents' life insurance company. Almost 6 million dollars. Now it comes out that she spent a great deal of it on political campaigns and candidate issues.

One of the politicians she gave money to was recently notified and they immediately turned over their ill-gotten gains to charity.

WTF?

Maybe I'm missing something here, but when you know where the money came from, why didn't they give it back to the people she stole it from? I mean, it is THEIR money, right?
