The Auditor outsources audits to private companies. They reciprocate with political donations.
The Treasurer outsources investing state monies to private companies. They reciprocate with political donations.
The Attorney General oursources legal work to private law firms. They reciprocate with political donations.
What's the Secretary of State going to do? It's not like they can outsource voter registration to private companies that'll turn around and send in campaign donations. They outsourced the simplest business filing in the office to a private company that turned out to be a consortium of professors at the Assistant Secretary of State's alma mater, a Bible college.

That's thousands of dollars a month of pure profit with no overhead.
