Sarah Palin’s PAC funding takes nosedive after spending inconsistencies are discovered

Sarah Palin’s political action committee has raised considerably less money this year, with most of the money failing to reach candidates like it was supposed to — instead going to things like travel, speech writing, consultants, and other logistical fees.

Sarah Palin’s political action committee has raised considerably less money this year, with most of the money failing to reach candidates like it was supposed to — instead going to things like travel, speech writing, consultants, and other logistical fees.

According to a report from The Center for Public Integrity, the only candidate who received any contributions from SarahPAC in 2013 was Rep. Jason Smith (R-Mo), who was the victor in a special election for a congressional seat in his state back in June.

During the first six months of the year, SarahPAC was able to raise more than $460,000. But the figure falls short of what the former Alaska governor was able to raise at various points in the last two years. For example, by the end of 2012 SarahPAC had raised almost $1.2 million, which was a significant drop from the previous year’s $1.7 million.

In the first half of 2013, the PAC spent almost $500,000, but it was later revealed that most of the spending was for travel and logistics — not for helping candidates.

Small donors still are able to sustain Palin’s group, with a portion of the funds raised coming from “individual contributions of less than $200.”

A recent poll from PPP (Public Policy Polling) shows that Palin’s popularity has taken a hit, with its most recent survey showing that if Palin were to run for the U.S. Senate against Democrat incumbent Mark Begich of Alaska, Begich would “cruise” to reelection.

Cenk Uyger of The Young Turks had something to say about SarahPAC’s spending hypocrisy.

    What a surprise! Sarah Palin is running a scam…ON HER OWN PEOPLE! She is a disgrace to her state, this country and even her own party!

    Sarah Palin is the phoniest beatch that ever walked but she is smart enough to fool her idiot followers and part them from their money. What a miserable excuse for a human being this stupid woman is.

    I just have to feel for the “individual” contributors, who I’m sure are the elderly and the everyday people working hard for their money. They have been hood-winked by a gutless woman who does nothing more than bloviate and make herself seem important – for her own self-interest, and nothing more. She has no intention of running for office and would make no sizable contribution if she were lucky enough to win. Her only reason for staying in the public eye is to keep taking money and spending it on more of the same. Her “party” should send her packing and shun her. For those who still send money to her, I send a heartfelt “wake-up” call to you. Hasn’t she fooled you long enough?

    It’s called fraud, and it’s illegal.

    Can’t say for sure, but I’m guessing McCain is thinking to himself: Good Lord, what have I unleashed on the American public?

    She’s the perfect Tea Party representative — fleece the gullible for all their worth while contributing as little as possible to the common good.

    Thank you, Mike, you gave me a good long and hard belly laugh to start my morning off with! I would expect no less stupid and completely fallacious remark from anyone who has such a low IQ as to be a follower of that empty headed waste of space, Palin! ROFLMMFAO!!!!!

    It’s great to see he’s got this voting block. But how’s he doing with the voting circles? Are the rectangles lining up behind him too? Stump, please. you’re too stupid to be commenting.

    In John’s defense, Sarah was forced upon him. McCain was seen as being too “Moderate” and needed someone from the extreme right to energize the base.
