Open Secrets has reported on Sarah PAC for the 2012 election cycle. Total funds taken in were $2,808,966. Total funds spent were $3,155,063. Thus, SarahPAC this cycle has spent 350,000.00 more than it took in. Contrast that to the 2010 election cycle where the SarahPAC took in $5.7 million and spent $4.4 million dollars. Two observations are obvious. First the SarahPAC is spending more than it earns, and secondly, total contributions are down.
The information regarding candidates to whom the SarahPAC made financial contributions is also informative. A total of $55,000 was donated by the PAC to Republican candidates for the House of Representatives, and a total of $10,000 was donated to candidates for Senate.
No money was donated to any candidate for President. Moreover in the 2012 cycle, SarahPAC has only donated approximately .025% of the money it has taken in to candidates. The unmistakable conclusion from this data is that if you are a donor to the SarahPAC, your donations are being used almost totally to support Sarah Palin, and a fraction of 1% of your donations actually go towards funding a political candidate. It shouldn’t come as any surprise to any donor to SarahPAC that the politician who quit to enhance her personal net worth, is still working to enhance her personal net worth.
