Once again, it's the Mason family checkbook front and center.
The Hoboken streets are abuzz with the latest attempt by Beth Mason to appear relevant and this time it comes with a whopper pricetage for a photo with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The purported pricetag for Beth Mason's photo with Hillary Clinton: over $200,000!
While individuals may donate far less for political candidates, Super PACs obliterate the limits making national campaigns a slugfest of dollars. Hillary Clinton is reportedly seeking to set a new record for her campaign warchest: $2.5 billion.
The photo below is cropped and untouched with no other changes from Beth Mason's public Facebook page.

The new book due out in days, "Clinton Cash" is getting national attention and the author says he now has full time security and it's "not something that just came because we decided to have security. And we'll just leave it at that."
Peter Schweizer is also the author of "Throw them all out" and "Extortion." He appeared in Hoboken to promote "Throw them all out," covering political corruption on both sides of the aisle.
MSV covered the event in March 2012.
