SarahPAC raised $1.2 million by spending $1 million on fundraising expenses and consultants. Since she can’t raise serious cash, and since she must fly everywhere in a private jet, her endorsees end up paying big bills:
[Georgia candidate for Governor] Handel paid nearly $100,000 to bring Palin to an August rally ahead of a crucial runoff in the race. According to newly filed campaign reports with the state Elections Commission, Handel’s campaign paid $92,000 to an Ohio-based air charter to fly Palin to the Aug. 9 rally. The campaign also paid $13,000 to rent space at a local hotel to house the event. Handel narrowly lost the GOP nomination to Nathan Deal on Aug. 10.
The only logical conclusion is that we need this kind of fiscal prowess in DC to help us cut the deficit.
