CBS 60 Minutes aired an investigative report on Sunday by Steve Kroft who interviewed Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer which revealed how politicians on the hill abuse their leadership PACs by spending lavishly on themselves. However, when it comes to applying PAC money for its original proposed use of campaign contributions, some members can be downright stingy with their PAC donations.
The Center for Responsive Politics reported in early October that House Republican Leadership has raised a massive amount of funds through their various PACs. However, according to Open Secrets, twenty conservative Republican members, who The New York Times identified as a constant thorn in Boehners side, received very little if nothing at all from these leadership PACs and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) during the 2012 election cycle.

The chart is a real eye opener, but Breitbart must be excerpted so I can't post it here.
NEVER intending to “win”,
Team Romney/Rove took the money,
and laughed all the way home.
Many, many beasts that need to be starved....
Recently when Senator Ted Cruz had dinner with House members there were only 15 or 20 who joined him.
Fewer than the 16 needed to trigger a vote were opposed to Boehner’s leadership when the Republicans in the House caucused earlier this year.
That meeting came after Boehner cut what he called an “imperfect deal” to raise taxes and increase the debt ceiling.
BOTTOM LINE IS THAT MOST OF THE REPUBLICANS WE ELECT TO THE HOUSE ARE BOEHNER’S CRONIES EVEN WHEN THEY VOTE AGAINST HIM TO LOOK GOOD FOR THE FOLKS BACK HOME. MY CONGRESSMAN VOTES CONSERVATIVE A LOT BECAUSE HE HAS TO BUT HAD JOHN BOEHNER IN THE OTHER MONTH FOR A FUNDRAISER.
90 PERCENT PLUS OF THE ELECTED REPUBLICANS ARE PHONIES AND MUST BE CLEANED OUT.
CONSERVATIVE CHALLENGERS CAN USE THE FACT THAT THEIR MEMBER OF CONGRESS WHO HAS A GOOD VOTING RECORD IS BEING FUNDED BY BOEHNER’S PAC’S PROVING WHO’S SIDE THEY ARE REALLY ON.
I guess that is another reason to donate directly to the candidates who are Conservative and not through a party, which will dole out money to favorites.
Only donate to the Senate Conservative’s Fund or Freedom Works - DO NOT GIVE A RED CENT TO ANY OTHER GROUP OR YOUR MONEY WILL BE USED FOR RINO’S!
GOP leadership can suck the hose. We’ll see how this plays out as we draw closer to 2014.
You are 100% correct.
Boehner spent all summer fundraising instead of fighting kenyancare. That tells you all you need to know what his priorities are.
Better to be liberal than in the majority, in the GOPe’s opinion.
DITTOS AND AMEN!!
Obama’s minions are working SOOoooo hard to demoralize Tea Party Patriots so that Obama’s “team” can KEEP the Senate in 2014 and maybe SNATCH control of the House, too.
They’re even using FAKE stories trying to “isolate” the leaders we have — just as Alinsky instructs them to do. Imagine that!
If there’s a primary candidate you prefer to the candidate put forward by the GOP “establishment”, then help your guy win that primary and help him win the general election.
Obama wants you to stay home and sulk.
IMHO, THAT won’t save America in 2014.
I have a feeling this could end very badly for the GOP. Conservatives may fail to show up, or vote for all kinds of screwy third parties. The GOP could well lose its majority in that event. It would be a good idea for conservatives to try to avoid this by: primary-ing all the liberal Republicans we can, ensuring good turnout for good candidates; creating organizations like the Senate Conservatives Fund to support those conservatives out there; and preparing for a challenge to Boehner and Obama that conservatives can rally around. Newt’s Contract with America was a great plan for nationalizing the congressional elections. We need something similar for conservatives, a plan by a caucus within the caucus for aggressively confronting Obamacare, spending and the galloping march towards tyranny.
That's how we got so many non-representatives into this Vichy-DEM lite ( so called RHINOs ) cooperators organization.
The Republican party will see no money from me.
I will financially support those candidates who share my political views.
Elections have consequences
Non support of true action Conservatives have consequences
Purges have consequences too
I haven't left the Republican Party ,.. the Party left me !
Obamas minions are working SOOoooo hard to demoralize Tea Party Patriots so that Obamas team can KEEP the Senate in 2014 and maybe SNATCH control of the House, too.

Sorry, you just haven’t been paying attention. Obama has nothing to do with the non action and invisible “leadership” of the GOP leadership. They have chosen to tip toe to the election again. Let me buy you a clue: that is a losing strategy. Feel free to keep cheering them on if you wish. Just don’t blame conservatives when they lose AGAIN.
