    Houston Politics Examiner ^ | July 28, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington
    The Conservatives4Palin blog noted on Sunday that former Alaska governor and presidential candidate Sarah Palin has arranged for SarahPac to provide funding to the reelection campaigns of Republican House members who opposed re-electing John Boehner as House Speaker. As the New York Times reported at the time, Boehner suffered the embarrassment of having 25 members of his caucus vote to deny him a new term as speaker. The Republican majority in the House was large enough to have Boehner reelected by a comfortable margin in any case
  • Dear Daily Caller Boys….[or too many, to little, or that's just right SarahPac]

    Dear Gentlemen of the Daily Caller, On October 10, 2014, Alex Pappas, posted an article stating that, "Palin Donates Only 5 Percent Of PAC Contributions To Candidates." On August 2, 2013, Ben Jacobs posted an article stating that, "Palin’s political action committee spends more than it makes." Notwithstanding the Goldilocks Principle you’ve applied to SarahPAC, I noticed that at the end of Mr. Pappas’ article he stated that " The Daily Caller attempted to reach SarahPAC’s treasurer," and I assume they did not hear back from Mr. Crawford. Since the Daily Caller makes it a hobby of checking the books...

    Sarah Palin‘s PAC is extremely stingy when it comes to donating money to her fellow Republicans: a report from Open Secrets reveals that since the 2014 two-year election cycle began, her PAC has raised a total of $2.7 million dollars, but only donated $150,000 of that money to actual candidates, a donation rate of 5.5%.This year was even worse: according to SarahPAC’s third quarter filings this year, they had $1.4 million cash in hand, but only donated $45,000 to nine Congressional candidates — about 3% — between July 1st and September 30th. What did they spend the rest on? Many of the...

    Earlier today, Breitbart news published an article that featured an open letter from SarahPAC -- Sarah Palin's political action commitee. The letter openly stated the following to MSNBC President Phil Griffin and NBC News President Deborah Turness: If MSNBC fails to take disciplinary action on Martin Bashir, then they have truly demonstrated the only "war on women" has been waged by the left themselves.

    Roll Call's Political Moneyline ^ | May 27, 2013 | Kent Cooper
    Former Vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s Sarah PAC contributed $5,000 on 5/14 to Jason Smith (R-Mo.), who is running in the Missouri 8th District Special General Election on 6/4. The seat was vacated by Rep. Jo Ann Emerson (R-Mo.) in January. Emerson is now the CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. Smith, who is the Speaker Pro Tem of the Missouri House of Representatives, reported raising $200,313 from 4/1 to 5/15, and has $228,147 cash on hand as of 5/15. Smith raised $114,083 from individuals, including $5,200 from Anthony Kelly (owner, Precision Tent Rental, MO); $5,200 from Charlotte...

    JOHN AVLON, CNN CONTRIBUTOR: "....the Federal Election Commission filings for her PAC, the SarahPAC show is that the vast amount of the money raised and spent in the last election cycle was on consultants. It did not go to candidates. In fact less than $300,000 went to candidates. She spent more on her top consultant than she did in all the candidates she doled out money to. ..... When people give money to these political action committees, they think they're getting political action. What they're really doing is feeding a whole subcategory of consulting industry out there, a partisan economy."...

    The Other McCain ^ | March 29, 2013 | Robert Stacy McCain
    Prominent among the clueless douchebags who thought Rudy Giuliani could be elected president, John Avlon by 2009 was faced with a problem: How could a pro-Obama liberal Republican hireling find work in a political environment where the Tea Party uprising demonstrated that the Charlie Crist collaborationist Vichy wing of the GOP had no natural grassroots constituency? So in 2010, Avlon co-founded the “No Labels” movement, funded by liberal donors and assigned the mission of helping Democrats destroy the Tea Party. And if Avlon’s constant smearing of conservatives as “winguts” damaged the Republican Party, so what? Nobody involved in “No Labels”...

    Yahoo! News / The Atlantic Wire ^ | March 27, 2013 | Philip Bump
    In order to make the case that only she, Sarah Palin, can stand up to the consultants and money men and the "big, bad media," a new ad features nearly 20 media outlets in its pitch to send money to her PAC. The ad is meant to encourage people to get involved with SarahPAC, Palin's political action committee/bid for ongoing political relevance. Over the two minutes and 27 seconds it runs, more than a minute is spent showing clips of media entities praising Palin's political savvy. Also squeezed in: Palin suggesting that consultants and PACs and the media don't know...
  • Sarah Palin’s PAC gives $5,000 to Koster

    The Seattle Times ^ | October 23, 2012 | Emily Heffter
    Republican John Koster, a candidate for Congress in the 1st District, received a $5,000 contribution from SarahPAC, the political organization headed by Sarah Palin. Koster is in a tight race with Democrat Suzan DelBene to represent the 1st District, a newly drawn swing district that runs from Redmond to the Canadian border. Palin endorsed Koster in 2010, when he ran against Democrat Rick Larsen. Koster’s far-right tea party ties have been a major talking point for the DelBene campaign, which has branded Koster “too extreme” for the 1st District. Koster’s campaign says DelBene is too liberal...

    You betcha Sarah Palin will be at the August Republican National Convention. The political action committee for the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate plunked down $4,500 to reserve space at Channelside Bay Plaza for the big political event. [...] But the space at Channelside — a short walk from the Forum — will allow her an independent platform away from the formal event and access to some of the 15,000 journalists expected to cover the convention.

    Big mistake. Sarah Palin just knocked that underhanded pitch over the fence. From her Facebook account: The far Left continues to believe American voters are not smart enough to grasp the diversionary tactics it employs to distract us from the issues our President just doesn’t want to talk about – issues that affect us all every day and must be addressed. Exhibit A in these diversionary tactics is an absurd new attack ad President Obama has released taking my comments out of context. I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of...

    Former Bush advisor Karl Rove says he believes former Alaska governor Sarah Palin will enter the Republican presidential race sometime around Labor Day. Appearing on Fox News Saturday morning, Rove said Palin "has a schedule next week that looks like that of a candidate, not a celebrity." Rove also cited a new campaign-style video Palin has released on her recent visit to the Iowa State Fair as evidence Palin is gearing up for a run.

    SarahPAC ^ | August 2, 2011 | John J. Tiemessen, attorney for Sarah Palin
    The Alaska Attorney General’s office has dismissed yet another frivolous ethics complaint filed against Governor Palin by a leftwing political blogger. This particular blogger is from Texas (where she volunteered as a precinct captain for Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign), and yet her dismissed complaint against Governor Palin has cost the State of Alaska time and resources because no matter how absurd the complaint is, the state must respond to it. These complaints also cost Governor Palin personally to defend herself. This small band of leftwing bloggers have dedicated their lives to spreading lies, half-truths, and failed legal analysis about allegations...
  • Palin's PAC rakes in $1.6M by end of June

    The Hill ^ | 07/14/2011 | Michael O'Brien
    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's (R) political action committee, Sarah PAC, raised almost $1.6 million the first six months of this year, it will report in Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. Sarah PAC has just over $1.4 million in in the bank at the end of June after having spent about $1.6 million — about as much as it raised — between January and June. The first six months of this year saw a revamped political operation for Palin, who relaunched Sarah PAC's website this spring and embarked on a national bus tour sponsored by the PAC. That tour, along...

    Alternate headline: “Politico buries lead.” “It’s possible someone may get in later on,” Gillespie said, “but Republican activists, officials and donors are going to begin picking a horse from the current field. We have a field that will produce a nominee capable of beating Obama next November.”…Republicans officials have no idea what [Palin is] planning, although they agree she would have tons to lose by entering a race that would cost her the mystique she has built up. And Romney advisers said her entry would help the former Massachusetts governor dramatically.“The shock value would cause elected officials and party officials...

    I have observed that the polls and the news readers have taken to reminding us that Sarah Palin's nomination spells certain defeat for the GOP in 2012. Let's examine the question of Sarah Palin's prowess as a candidate, measured against the current field: It has been noted that former Senator Rick Santorum won his Senate seat in a big GOP year (1994) and lost it big in a Democrat year (2006), sweeping in with one tide and out with another. This is evidence of weakness as a candidate. Let's examine the rest of this field, using 2006 as the barometer....
