Good point, I'm not sure the Wikimedia Foundation pays him directly.
It doesn't; you're talking out of your ass.
How about indirectly? If you can go out to a $2000 meal (okay they refuse to pay $1300 of it) and get your trainfare paid for to visit the Russian hookers, then that's money that doesn't have to come out of your pocket. An expense credit card can be a scary thing (which is why my own company uses countersigned checks-- every one goes through the COO except in emergencies when there's a multiperson backup). They finally removed Jimbo's card. But was that Wikia that did that, or WMF?
I'm fairly certain that WMF COO Carolyn Doran used her corporate expense card to pay bail to get her out of jail after the DUI arrest on a weekend. And paid it back immediately, but the record was there.
