Palin's PAC brings in $733,000 in six months
Sarah Palin's political action committee certainly isn't feeling the pinch of the recession. The soon-to-be-ex Alaska governor's PAC brought in $733,000 in only six months, according to POLITICO. From the article:
The majority of the money raised by SarahPAC so far has come in the form of “unitemized contributions,” meaning donations of less than $200 each. PACs are not required to name those small donors in their filings with the FEC. The remaining money came through more than 700 different $200-plus contributions made by donors from all around the United States.
Interestingly, the committee has only given out two political contributions for a total of $10,000 so far: $5,000 to Sen. John McCain, Palin's former running mate, and $5,000 to Alaskan GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski. That's a drop in the ocean considering the PAC's resources.
