Skip to comments.Sarah Palin's PAC spent $1.4 million in 2015, gave just $23,500 to campaigns

Ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin launched her political action fund, Sarah PAC, in 2009 with the stated purpose "to help elect principled conservative leaders" across the country. But the latest Federal Election Commission filing indicates that money raised in small contributions by Sarah PAC is going to consultants, speech-writing services, direct-mail appeals, as well as stays by Palin in fancy hotels.
Sarah PAC raised $950,000 in 2015, spent a total of $1.4 million, and donated just 23,500 to 45 campaigns. It also...

Considering who Rahm was running against, I consider this a great donation. The teachers unions HATE Rahm, the blacks detest him, and as God awful as the little man is, he was the least worst they threw up there.
Just for clarity
I just happened to see the thread he was on when the announcement was leaked.
He was so angry he was spitting. How dare he not pick the obvious choice (pissant's preference)!!!
He had a dozen of the most spite filled posts I've seen to date on that thread. Sort of reminds me of what's going on today, he was quite the forerunner. And quite the head case.
Yep... I remember that well. He despised Palin from then on.
Back in Breaking I see... interesting.
Do PACs normally run their own ads these days?
Maybe I’m wrong.
Exactly. How much do consultants, speech writers and travel cost? I’d wager quite a bit. The ones criticizing Palin don’t have a charitable number in mind they can justify as ‘fair’ they just KNOW that the amount she gave is somehow ‘not enough’
Its most likely legal. The $1.399 million most likely went to administrative expenses which are exempt.
Oh cmon Dil do you really want to go through life being a jerk?
I’ve paid $149 a night and $780 a night for the same room in the same hotel in mid-town.
If several people were there the $4500 isn’t really that bad.
If we are ever convinced that Palin is a sellout, we’re done with her.
But one would think that Cruz and King could ‘out’ her easily enough since she worked with them both in their own campaigns.
I never heard of the SeattlePI before.

Frankly, I hope Trump is covering her cost-of-living right now and travel expenses. God bless them both. There’s not much profit in a presidential campaign unless you start a Clinton-style foundation as President.
The real money would be in slandering conservatives in a so called ‘tell all book’. The left would make her wildly rich and popular if Palin ever truly sold out.
‘She’s become just another grifter that is using her 15 minutes of fame to itsâ maximum potential.’
And the drive-by media must be ‘in on’ her grifter scheme, right? They have spared no expense in trying to find dirt on her.
So, where are ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Washington Post, and NYT?
Where is their smoking gun about what a greedy witch she is?
I challenge you.
They are only trying to hurt Palin because of Trump. So I’m going to start pasting this place with positive reports of Trump. He might be a vulgarian, but frankly, I don’t give a [bleep].

Trump: Politicians are ‘full of s-—’
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he doesn’t want to be politically incorrect, but he can’t stop himself from saying politicians are “full of sh*t.”
“These people - I’d like to use really foul language,” Trump said at a rally in Exeter, N.H. “I won’t do it. I was going to say they’re really full of sh*t. But I won’t say that.”
“No, it’s true. It’s true. I won’t say it. I won’t say it. But they are,” he added. “But I won’t say that because it’s too controversial. Let me tell you - and, of course, it’s not politically correct.” Decrying the culture of policing tone, Trump lamented: “Our country has become so politically correct that we can’t move anymore, we can’t walk anymore.”
The vulgarity came after a tirade against the Department of Veterans Affairs, which he condemned for not treating veterans in time to save their lives.
“That’s why you do need Trump, because you know what? No politician’s gonna solve this,” he said.

The only president who started off with more executive experience than Trump was Ike. If somene adds Washington to that list, I would not dispute it, but that is how rare his expierence is. And he’s proven to be a top notch executive.
I’m sure it is. I was just being a little facetious
Trump and Islamic No-Go Zones in England
Five police officers claim Donald Trump is RIGHT about parts of London being so radicalised
Serving police officers today backed Donald Trump’s claim that some Muslim communities in the UK are no-go areas because of extremism. Several Met officers have said the ‘Islamification’ of some parts of the capital requires ‘extra vigilance’ and they can’t wear uniforms for safety reasons - despite Scotland Yard claiming the tycoon ‘couldn’t be more wrong’. Home Secretary Theresa May tonight rejected Mr Trump’s claims, insisting: ‘The police in London are not afraid to go out and police the streets.’
The US presidential contender caused worldwide consternation yesterday after a string of incendiary remarks about Muslims, including in Britain ... [snip]
That doesn’t include the $1,000,000 he gave the other day.
The Trump Foundation’s $57,000 in donations to veterans groups from 2009 to 2013 amounted to far less than Trump’s donations to the Clinton Foundation. “Trump is listed on the Clinton Foundation’s donor page as having given somewhere between $100,001 and $250,000,” the Daily Caller reported last year.Jan 27, 2016
