Vote Sarah Palin 2016 SuperPAC receives mysterious donation of 5 million UK pounds sterling. WTF? Update!

"For Me???"
Somebody sent me a link to this tweet earlier today.

So I figured I would follow the link and see where it led.

It led here:  

Formal notification of receipt to Vote Sarah Palin USA President 2016 a sum of five million UK pound sterling (at exchange rate of equivalent in USA dollars of November 5 2012). The sum of five million UK pound sterling is equivalent value of asset held (which has a commercial market value of ?5 million). No expenditure was incurred in November 6 2012 USA presidential election campaign. This is because Sarah Palin was not an official USA presidential candidate on November 6 2012. This is the only filing that i have to disclose to FEC relating to 2012 campaign activity relating to USA presidential election 2012.

I quite literally have NO idea what this is. I checked and they do not seem to have any presence whatsoever on the internet.

Anybody have any ideas?

By the way 5 million UK pounds sterling works out to approximately $1,501,700.00 American.(Oops, should not have relied on a Google search, it turns out to be more along of the lines of $7,508,500.00)

I have so many questions.

Update: It looks like some small number of those questions have been answered. Well almost at least.

This is the profile of the person,zaccheus gilpin, identified as the treasurer of VOTE SARAH PALIN US PRESIDENT 2016.

And this was found in a Wall Street Journal article titled Brussels' Wacky Lobbyists:

Then, there’s Zaccheus Gilpin, who is based in the UK and whose registration suggests that he has pledged ₤5 million to the Conservative Party, “payable soon.” We have been unable to track Mr. Gilpin down, although a Google profile of someone with the same name suggests he’s a male model in his early 40s looking for worldwide assignments, who also claims to be an excellent kisser.

So my question is who is this person trying to mess with? The media, us. or Sarah Palin?

P.S. Thanks for all the digging you guys did on this story. I literally had just a few minutes to post it before having to leave for an appointment and did not have enough to time to do any thorough investigating myself. But you guys are the best so I knew you would get to the bottom of it.

This rotten cheese is what Sarah's hand pick Board of Agriculture used as collateral on $800,000 worth of loans that were defaulted on. Great job, Sarah.

      ALOL 1:15 Are you by chance M. Joseph Sheppard, the Palinbot who posted on Sea4Pee and who claims we must be crazy for questioning a large donation to a fraud, grifter, and ex-politician who lost all of her fan base except for a few suckers like yourself. In that case, just keep giving your donations to SarahPAC and see what it will get you, the same as you're getting now, nothing but contributing to her luxurious life style. We're getting the best laugh of all, except we feel bad for the majority of her donors who are retiree's. Look at the FEC filings on SarahPAC and see for yourself, especially where she spends her donations.

    9. Anonymous3:53 PM

      I just saw these two post and sent a reply to M. Joseph Sheppard with the following comment. I hope he see's it since he made he made a comment on Sea4Pee on how much of an idiot commenters are on MM.

      Saw your comment at C4P about Immoral Minority questioning a donation to "Vote for Sarah Palin 2016". I suggest the joke is on you. Please refer to the FEC filings I have provided a link to.

      If this address doesn't take you directly to the site, just enter it into your search engine and it should show up. The address is to the FEC and their correspondence along with other information concerning 'Vote for Sarah Palin 2016"

      I think you can judge for yourself from the letters written by the FEC to the "committee", and the committee's lack of a response if it's a legitimate committee or not. It appears they applied with the FEC to establish a PAC,"Vote for Sarah Palin 2016", but no further action has been taken on their part including of not answer the requests for additional information from the FEC, and by not giving a complete address for the headquarters of their committee. I believe the site Immoral Minority has the final laugh, for one not taking it for granted there was a legitimate donation in the first place, and two for researching into the organization and its validity.

      It's a hoax. This guy is a prankster. Look at his application for a patent for "Pen pushing algorithm" which is drawing lines on paper. He withdrew the application because he " didn't like the review process". But he does want to sell " Games you can play on paper " for £5 UK.

      He puts out bogus press releases as well. Just google his name for the links. He's a goofball. I don't know his motive, but it looks like he wants to make fools out of business or political media that will print/report anything that looks like it's on official stationery. This was filed on 5-Nov-2012, the day before the US Presidential election. Foreigners are barred by FEC regulations from donating to US political campaigns or PACS.

      In other words, Sarah Palin and her grubby little family of grifters better "hold their horses" before they start writing checks on that imaginary USD $7.5 million. The way things have gone for Ms Palin, I wouldn't take a check from her to deliver her a pizza, and any bills over a $20, I would use a currency verification marker. Sorry, Sarah. You're still broke.

      Pretty obvious that the PeePond lunatic from 1:15 is a low-info, low-intelligence asshole just like ML Shepherd. He can't write two sentences without screwing up punctuation, grammar, spelling, or writing a sentence fragment.

      His blog is a joke, and his little audio commentary is supposed to make up for the fact that the old fucker can't write at a 6th grade level. Of course, this puts him at the head of the pack of the fucktards at C4P.

      I'm sorry to tell those old crackers over there: Sarah ain't gonna fuck you, not that you could still get it up anyway. Go back to your blog with 3-4 comments left per week. lol. You idiots still paying for Sarah's personal expenses crack me up. Neither you nor your buddy Pete over there who's on food stamps can't stay away from this blog, and you dumbasses can't figure out how the blog that you all post on everyday works. lol. Pitiful imbeciles, none of whom even has a pot to piss in... that's the PeePond crowd. Thanks for the laughs. Come visit us again real soon, and bring ol' Pete and Bri-Anus with you.

    13. Anonymous9:48 PM

      Anon 7:23, I have also visited his blog and have to agree with your assessment. What I also found interesting was the comments at Sea4Pee trashing MJSheppard for misquoting the headline to this article accurately. He claimed this article stated the donation was for SarahPAC instead of Voter Sarah Palin 2016. He even had commenters writing that what he wrote were lies and that all of his comments were mostly false. From their comments it looks like they handed his tarnished ass back to him. One thing is for sure, his reputation at Sea4Pee is very low and his future comments will likely be ignored by most.

      It's actually the FEC, Federal Election Commission, who is responsible for making sure SarahPAC is spending the money as they claim. I wish they would do an investigation. I have spent time going through her PAC filings and there does seem to be expenses that should be questioned, or the amount, or in the amount of the expenditure they're claiming. Such as $6,000 a month for speech writing for what speeches?

    Even if some rich delusional British nutcase was foolish enough to give $arah 5 million quid, it won't make one iota's worth of difference

    Running a real campaign for President in 2016 will require at least 500 million or more, and only Dem or Repub candidates are going to have that kind of money

    Paylin will never get the Republican nomination after the ditzy implosion of her 2008 performance

    If she runs 3rd party, $arah and her teaparty religious extremist geriatrics can't do anything more than split the vote to rob the Repubs of victory.

    Of course 5 million pounds will get the few remaining Palinb0ts into a tizzy, and cause even more idol worship in the ranks, much to our amusement.

    And, any astute observer will note that accepting foreign bribes to run for high office isn't very patriotic.

    1. Just a minor correction

      Paylin will never get the Republican nomination - after the events of Tucson - Jan 8, 2011 - that is the day any thoughts of a political campaign - for any position - stopped.

    Gryphen, please check your math. 5 British Pounds = $7.51 dollars, so that would make $5 million pounds $7508500.00
    In November, 2012, the rate was about $1.50 to buy one pound,still making it around $7,500,000.

    It sounds about as authentic as a phone call from President Sarkozy of France. Has anyone looked for the treasurer,Zaccheus Gillpin, on the internet?

    If you follow celebrity gossip, you'd know that there is a dude in Dubai who runs a business called Millions of Shakes...apparently, the guy pays celebrities to do "appearances"...and also? To have sex with him. It seems like these people are willing to spend big $$$$$$ to pay to have sex with well-known celebs. It's a kind of status thing for them. Even washed up people like Lindsay Lohan and Pamela Anderson. Sarah is not...looking...her best...but maybe someone is will to pay $$$$$$$$$ for the high-status notch for his bedpost???

  37. I forgot to mention that foreign donations to US Presidential elections are illegal, though perhaps they could create a US entity to act as a superPAC and advocate for Ms Palin, though the reality is since the source is foreign, Ms Palin would not see a dime of that money.

    1. Anonymous12:25 PM

      Ah, but see, if she does NOT run, then her PAC money is hers to squander, which she has done with every dime donated so far. It seems she only has to make small donations to a few candidates, and she can waste the rest on surgeries, bus wraps, crunchwraps and lots and lots of postage.
