The super PAC created by former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, former NASA astronaut Mark Kelly, to provide a counter-weight to the politically powerful National Rifle Association raised $6.5 million in its first six months of operation, according to a Federal Election Commission report filed Wednesday.
Unlike many other super PACs, Americans for Responsible Solutions received broad support from small and medium-sized donors. Tens of thousands of small donors giving less than $200 combined for a total $3.2 million to Giffords' group, and thousands of medium-sized donors giving under $1,000 accounted for slightly more than $1 million.
I am proud to say that even though I have been trying to avoid giving anymore money to charities and causes, that I was more than willing to send my $100 to Gabby. So yes my donation made up a very small part of this rather incredible sum.
And isn't it nice to see that people are so willing to give to such a positive and important political cause? Especially when you consider how poorly a certain Little Miss Blood Libel did the other day with HER PAC.
Not to mention that the NRA, in the first six months of 2013, has only raised a little of 7 million themselves.
God I love Karma! (Not that I believe in it, but you know.)
