Skip to comments.Why Sarah Palin's PAC Is Losing Money [The Media Still Hate Her]
Posted on 07/31/2013 5:02:44 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Sarah Palin's political action committeesimply named Sarah PACtook in $460,537.83 so far this year, according to new filings with the Federal Election Commission. That sounds like a pretty big number! But when you look at how much the PAC has been spending, how it has been spending it, and the way things used to be, the picture looks far bleaker.
First, the spending picture: In the first six months of 2013, Sarah PAC spent $496,505.68. That's $35,967.85 more than the PAC was able to raise. To be clear, Sarah PAC isn't in debt: In the latest filing, the PAC reports having $1,113,971.25 on hand.
It's easy to see that things aren't great, however. According to the Center for Public Integrity, Sarah PAC's most recent haul compares very badly to what it took in over the last two years. By this time in 2012, Sarah PAC had raised $1.2 million. That wasn't just an election year fluke; by the end of June 2011, the PAC had raised $1.7 million.

To be clear, Matt Berman was just assigned to do a hit piece on Sarah and did it. Mission accomplished for the Obama buttlicking Matt.
What this fake journalist DOESN'T do is provide context for this story. In June 2011 and June 2012, there was a clear momentum for conservatives going into a presidential election year.
What Miss Matt Berman ALSO doesn't do is tell you how other PACs are spending and raising money...are Sarah's numbers out of line with other political action committees in the year AFTER a presidential election and NOT the year of mid-term?
This kind of garbage is what poses at journalism at the National Journal?
Oh, and the rest of the article is just criticism for Sarah paying consultants....as if no other PACs pay consultants. Nothing illegal going on, apparently, it is just that Matt is wondering if we ought to be concerned....
Maybe I'll just go over to Sarahpac and give her some more money now....
Please show me where they’ve delved into any other politician or private citizen’s PAC in any detail. For instance: Hillary Clinton. No, you say? Curious.
They are akin to the race baiters, they believe they found their little corner to continue their circle jerks.
So damn tired of all the crazy dysfunction, everywhere.
Is this the turkey that’s been writing hit pieces on her for years?
Why is Yahoo such a POS search engine?
The World may never know.
“To be clear” we are breaking from RINOS!! to the FREEDOM party and the “whigs” are truey history unless they deal with us,
Which means she is generous to a fault.
I like her.
It’s so nice to see they are worried about her.
Gov. Palin absolutely scares the snot out of them, doesn’t she?
I recall that weasel John Avlon wrote a similar hit piece on Sarah’s PAC several months ago. Hmmm...I detect a pattern here.
Both liberal Democrats and moderate Republicans are afraid of Sarah because she is Conservative and is not afraid to articulate conservative ideas.
Wow, that comment is 200% correct. They are disrespecting Hispanics by assuming they are for rewarding lawbreakers.
Isn’t she supposed to be irrelevant?
I’d say check back in 2014 when the campaign season heats up
