(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.
Hey..... Ain't life strange isn't it amazing that the same kind of thing happened as Obama sat in a church for how many years listening to the hate and madness being spewed without saying anything..... watch out how you couch your arguments and ask your questions. It might make your sound like a ....... well you know.
Just more proof that ALL Republicans are dumber than a box of rocks!!!
....a fool and his money are soon parted.
$730,000 for the quitter who showed no respect for the respect shown her by Barack Obama.
It's no wonder the Republicans still have John Ensign, David Vitters, and Mark Sanford still in office.
Looks like Levi Johnson was correct when he said Palin talked about all the big money she could make when she was no longer Gov.
Let's see, The Quitter raised $730,000, gave $100,000 to a consultant and just $10,000 to actual candidates (including a measly $5,000 to the man who made her a household name - unfortunately). That leaves $620,000 for what? More designer clothes for Palin and her family?
Just politics as usual.
Soooo where do I donate!!!
Help us kick them all out of office!!!
Go Sarah 2012!!!
U go girl!!!
Ahh, Sarah Palin. If the media were at war with you like the Republicans claim, then why was the McCain campaign ALSO at war with you? You reap what you sow Sarah, so enjoy your cash. To earn more you'll have to sell your soul to reality TV.
To Expat American:
Hear! Hear! Well said, and definitely worth repeating!
"Hoping for an intelligent female GOP candidate"
Senators to Governor's fundraising and cash on hand, that's not exactly an apples to apples comparison. Plus, the Senators are running for (re)-election, whereas Sarah is not.
She just lost a vote from her own pending son in-law
The more you guys knock Palin the stronger she becomes. I even like Palin more now than I did and this is in large part due to the negative and unfair attacks by some people who claim they belong to the same party as I. I will take Palin at her word. She has not proven to anyone that she is not honest, so the speculation whirling around her is unfair. We democrats need to be careful. You may push on someone who will push back. Let Sarah Palin do whatever Sarah Palin wants and we should concentrate on supporting our current President and helping our country out of this mess.
$730K in 6 months is chump change. She better hurry up an write her book if she wants to see the big bucks roll in as Levi suggested.
I am very proud to say that I'm one of those 700 who desperately believe that Sarah has the courage, tenacity and decency to run a principled, strong presidential run for 2012 if she so chooses. She is one of the few people who are willing to hold Obama accountable for his past, present and future goals for America. She is in direct opposition to his economic and energy plans i.e. cap and trade, etc. The worst bill for our businesses and taxes. 2004 "The cost of energy will skyrocket" (President Obama unfettered) What was and is he thinking? Talk about bizzare and erratic!!
Just like I said before that CNN never posted my comment, the more CNN brings her up the more the liberals are squirming. They don't like her. The more they hate her the more money she makes trough donations. What the liberals should do is to atack the media/CNN for bringing her name up constantly. I'm an independent and I love it. She's laughing all the way to the bank and the liberals can't sleep at night over this. Keep up the good work CNN. .
I believe you under estimate the Palin effect. Most average americans above all believe in fairness and justice.When CNN runs front page stories with the 19 year old as a source we should all listen to or even care about what he has to say its very sad for journalism.The constant attacks on this women has given her the support of (average americans ) for they see that a clear injustice is being done.They will correct it at the voting both if this continues..
Can someone stop Palin's new age doomsday message ? !
Just goes to show that there a lot stupid republicans out there with money too waste!
How can you present yourself as a viable candidate for any office in the United States of America when your husband is a member of a group that espouses that ALASKA SECEDE from the U. S. I believe you yourself said you read the John Birch newspapers. Can anything be more traitorous to the people of this country ?
Peggy Noonan, thoughtful Republican and conservartive, in an outstanding article had it right. Sarah Palin like George Bush is a sower of discord....Thoughtful , one might add intelligent types, like the late William Buckley , can see that Sarah is intellectually thin...she may sell but she is not presidental material never will be!!!
Uhmmm.....next thing you'll have to do...is get smart people to vote for you. As it stands, you are shy by about 30% of what you would need to get in office.
If Palin were elected, we would officially have the stupidist leader in all of history. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm all for being first in things, and I'm all for equal opportunity. But it shouldn't apply to stupid people, such as "Five years to get a journalism degree so that she can come off as a joke when communicating" Palin
Talk about throwing your money away!
I sure hope the IRS takes note of this
She's so slimy that I'm surprised she can stand upright.
I hope you are not from Michigan. What an idiot to support this uneducated clueless woman. Who in the hell is still giving money to this woman! Are you kidding me! If you support Palin you are either a staunch racist or the dullest tool in the shed!
