|I refuse to accept that my fifteen minutes of fame has finally come to an end.|
When the quarter began the fund had $171,686.
It brought in a measly $166,090 over a three month period.
And it spent $183,429. (Including $20,000 to political campaigns.)
Leaving it with only $154,347 at the time of this report.
Remember that in the last quarterly report we learned that the PAC started with $267,574, brought in $149,246, and spent $245,136.
We thought THAT was pathetic, and it was, but this report essentially proves that it is all over but the crying.
I did a quick rundown of some of the numbers and found the expenditures to be much the same as they have been all along, Though there are significantly less of them.
Consultants pocketed a cool $57,000. (And yes it is still Northstar Strategies and Tim Crawford who are receiving that money. Crawford and Northstar were also reimbursed for travel and lodging expenses.)
Postage and direct mail still approximately cost SarahPAC a whopping $51,000. (Can you say "money laundering?")
They spent about $1,670 on fundraising. (What a waste.)
The fund is also still paying Marilyn Lane and Carol Ryan for "clerical" work.
And attorney fees cost them $6.738, with the largest portion going to the law offices of Baker and Hostetler which apparently is the firm representing SarahPAC.
At some point soon the operating costs for this slush fund will far exceed the amount that Palin can still squeeze out of the pockets of these poor ignorant slobs and then completely drain the few dollars left behind each month.
I imagine when that finally happens we will see this sad little grifting operation finally come to an end.
Then Track Palin will have to start paying his own attorney fees. Bummer!
