(CNN) – Just over a week after announcing her intention to resign as governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin's political action committee reports raising close to $730,000 in the first six months of the year.
According to a report filed with the Federal Elections Commission Monday, SarahPAC raked in $732,867 from the beginning of the year through June 30. The former GOP vice presidential candidate's PAC further reported more than $450,000 cash on hand with no debts owed.
The FEC report shows the majority of contributions, $420,000, has come from donations of under $200. By law, the PAC does not have to identify those contributors. More than 700 individuals meanwhile gave over $200 to the committee.
But Palin, who has pledged to spend her days out of the governor's office supporting conservative candidates, has yet to dig deep into the coffers for many candidates.
According to the report, the PAC has only made two political contributions this year: $5,000 to John McCain's Senate reelection bid and $5,000 to Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski's effort.
Palin's largest expenditure, just over $100,000, was to Virginia fundraising firm Edonation.com.
Well, surprise, surprise, surprise! Why be governor when there is money to be made? To walk off the job and leave Alaskans holding the bag like that is really low class.
Pretty good after 24/7 bashing and not campaigning for your PAC.
How interesting, just look at that.
Pailin should've done more research.
Why is Palin resiging now?
Think the stress go to her.
Good Luck lady.
Sarah Palin keep what you doing
God bless America, no place else
Sarah Palin - that's my girl!
Short version: Barf
Long version: Barf, barf
she can sell!
Palin is herself
Palin is now Planning her political future.
For the life of me I cannot understand why anyone cares about this small-minded person. I had hoped we were rid of her but like a bad cold she's sticking around with hopes of becoming a female version of Rush Limbaugh or (laughingly) running for President of the United States.
What an opportunist. What an ego. What a goof.
I wonder is she can still see Russia from her house
That's because most of us want her to run, so she can lose :)
she needs all the donations she can get to PAY FOR HER LEGAL BILLS
who in their right mind would donate to this corrupt losing quitter?
I guess that answers the question as to where a chunk of (Goldman Sachs) bailout money went.
Thank God Palin is out their fighting the good fight. I hope she keeps up with it. And she should disreguard the dum down american public who knows nothing about goverment who follow OBAMA blindly.
Obama is ruining our country and you are worried about Sarah Palin raising less than a million dollars?!
Everytime someone brings up race on this board it's you. You should stop being duplicitious and stop accusing others of what you are doing yourself.
Ralph, she will do what the current president is doing. Go overseas, let the press follow the children (who were supposed to be out of the spotlight), and start and investigation into the last administration (even though you said you wouldnt) to lead the press away from what you are doing which is nothing.
A fool and his/her money are soon departed. This adage applies in this case to both giver and receiver.
So people give money to Sarah Palin so she can give it away. That makes no sense to me.
I am amazed there are so many fools out there waiting to be parted from their money.
She should rename her PAC 'QUIT-PAC'
