SarahPac's latest report-oh this is a doozy!

From The Wall Street Journal Blog

Remember the images of the Liberty Bell and Constitution on the bus former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin used for her “One Nation” tour last month?

That bus wrap cost $13,708.44, according to her political action committee’s mid-year campaign finance report. The report doesn’t list how much Ms. Palin spent to rent the bus for the “One Nation Tour,” which ran May 30 through June 3. On June 2, the committee paid a Dallas Visa center about $26,000 for “Air fare, lodging, car rental and wireless.”

The report showed SarahPAC spent $1.6 million and took in $1.7 million during the first half of 2011.

The filing, covering the committee’s expenses from Jan. 1 through June 30, also lists:

–$5,794 on a tour of the Holy Land, guided by Sar-El Tours and Travel, when Ms. Palin visited Israel back in March.

–$683 on bookmarks from Nico & LaLa, a Nashville event-planning firm specializing in “swanky, southern and sophisticated,” according to its website.

–$27,850 for Air Partner Private Jets on April 15, and $7,000 in May on Republican Presidential Travel, another air charter firm.

 –$293 for a meal at Ray’s the Steaks in Arlington, Va., the day before Ms. Palin kicked off her East Coast bus tour.

-$18,700 in February to Young America’s Foundation, a conservative youth outreach group in Hendon, Va.

–a $5,000 contribution to Colorado Republican Rep. Mike Coffman’s campaign committee on Jan. 31. On June 29, near the end of the reporting period, the PAC gave $5,000 each to a number of 2012 Republican congressional candidates: Reps. Larry Bucschon of Indiana, Ann Marie Buerkle of New York,  Vicky Hartzler of Missouri, Martha Roby of Alabama, Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania,  Allen West of Florida, Sean Duffy of Wisconsin, Francisco Canseco of Texas, Renee Ellmers of North Carolina, Mike Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, and Sens. Roger Wicker of Mississippi and Bob Corker of Tennessee. Many of the lawmakers represent districts in swing states or are tea party-leaning freshmen elected last year.

In case you have forgotten, here is that hideous bus:

I'm sure the Peebots are thrilled that they paid $300 for a meal.  Her income is way down too, and Barack Obama has raised $86 million for his re-election campaign.  I think it's safe to say her supporters are turning on her.

  1. Palin does not use taxpayer money. Her PAC has donated money. So her expenses have not cost you one penny.

    However, when Michelle Obama takes her expensive "vacations" to Africa, etc., the taxpayer pays for it! Obama is doing election campaigning at taxpayers' expense. Doesn't that bother you any?

    There is nothing wrong with Palin's bus. It looks pretty good except to the socialist Obama liberals.

    In fact, Obama needs a 2nd term just to try correct the administrative economic mess he has put our country in. You can have him!

    What the heck is a "physician consultant" anyway?
    A high priced way to bilk others for money like our scarah?

  5. Truga-FLOTUS was on a goodwill trip, plus the Obamas helped pay for some renovating at the WH. Obama does not campaign at the taxpayers expense. Doesn't it bother you a bit that PAC money was used to pay for Chuck and Sally Heath's lodging on this vaction?

    Fuck off!

  6. Hope you have been invited to Obama's birthday party bash at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago (he will also be raising money for next year's election). How much money do you think that this event will cost the taxpayer?

    It's a pretty sad commentary if you have to resort to profanity and vulgarity.

    Since Palin has not declared that she is running for POTUS, why don't you spend more time gloating over all the great things that Obama has accomplished since he has been in office.

    I'm out of here.
