Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Tequesta) has received a campaign donation form an unlikely source, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
Records show that SarahPAC, Palin’s political action committee, donated $1,000 to Rooney’s campaign on Dec. 31.
Rooney is one of several Republican candidates who received donations from SarahPAC, a list that includes Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) and his son, Rand Paul. Other recipients were Jean Schmidt (R-OH), Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN). Palin also gave money to Sens. Tom Coburn (R-OK), John Thune (R-SD), Richard Burr (R-NC), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Jim DeMint (R-SC).
FEC reports show that in the last six months SarahPAC has spent a total $43,000 on donations to candidates seeking federal office.
However, the reports also show that SarahPAC spent a total of $47,777 on books. That’s right, books. So that means more of the PAC money was spent on books than actual donations to candidates. Can you guess which book?
The Bible? Nope.
“Game Change?” Yeah, right.
Give up? OK. That’s right: “Going Rogue.”
Do you suppose Tom Rooney got one of those books along with his $1,000?
