Update: Well, well, well. Guess who is on the Mitt Romney Steering Committee?? G'head. Guess.
I'll tell you: The CEO of PayPal.

My. God.

Post from earlier:

If you use PayPal, stop. There are so many reasons to not use them, but the proverbial straw that broke this camel‘s back is today's story about how they withheld the funds for the recount in New Hampshire.
I am informed directly by the Granny Warriors that PayPal did in fact freeze the funds earmarked for the Recount Fees! So, now you know who to blame for the failure to get a recount of the New Hampshire vote count. PayPal. The application for a recount of the New Hampshire vote required a deposit of $55,600 to the New Hampshire Secretary of State no later than 3:00 P.M. this afternoon, January 15th. A huge and successful effort by the Granny Warriors raised the money and they ordered the transfer to the Secretary. However, at the very last moment, PayPal FROZE THE ACCOUNT and did not transfer the money. The deadline for payment of the deposit passed and the recount application was rejected for lack of payment.
Oh, and they've done something like this before.
PAYPAL HAS frozen a relief effort set up by popular web site Something Awful.

This brilliant wheeze will delay payments to poor people from hurricane Katrina.
