Last July Trump announced that Sarah Palin would not be attending the Republican Convention because Alaska was just too darn far away. The long distance was never a problem before. Sarah has appeared in New York ,
So we knew that distance wasn’t the reason. What would be the reason Sarah might pass up such a high profile appearance, and a chance to trash Hillary?
Today it seems obvious that …as always with Sarah…it’s all about the money.
She’s been trying to sell her house in Arizona since December of 2015. The original asking price was $2,500,000.00. Today we learn that she sold it for $2,275,000.00. Perhaps the fact that she took $275,000 less than the asking price isn’t as significant as the fact that she was selling it. So is Sarah strapped for cash?
The answer appears to be YES! Open Secrets reports that as of September 12, 2016 SarahPAC only had $171,686.00 cash on hand! Even more telling is the news that since the 2014 election cycle, SarahPAC has spent more money that the donations it received.
In 2014 Sarah PAC raised: $2.8 Million Dollars
In 2014 Sarah PAC spent : $3.1 Million Dollars
In 2014 Sarah PAC experienced a net loss of $300,000.00.
In 2016 Sarah PAC has raised $1.2 Million Dollars
In 2016 Sarah PAC has spent $1.9 Million Dollars
In 2016 Sarah PAC has experienced a net loss, so far this year of $700,000.00
As of June 30, 2016 Sarah PAC only had $171,686.00 cash on hand. The Convention occurred on July 18, 2016. I suspect that at the rate of cash going out the door that Sarah couldn’t afford to pay for the long flight from Alaska to appear at the convention. What Open Secrets doesn’t tell us is the outstanding debt of Sarah PAC. If Sarah’s history in her short time in office is any indication, she may be in significant debt.
She sold the RV:
She sold the Arizona home:
Sarah’s out of work:
Todd’s out of work:
Track’s out of work:
Willow, Piper, and Trig are still living at home. No new books are scheduled to come out this fall, and even if they did, Sarah PAC doesn’t have the money to buy them! Legal fees are out of control.
Palin called President Obama “lazy”.
It seems that Sarah is the one who is lazy now. Now that people have realized that they were being scammed, Sarah might have to get a real job. Maybe Dr. Jack Me-Off needs another technician? Maybe Sarah will have to stop hiring babysitters to care for Trig? Maybe when she gives a speech she will only be able to demand one water bottle, instead of two. Maybe she’ll have to fly coach like the rest of us. Maybe Bristol can lend her some other clothes. Maybe she’ll have to eat some of that moose in the freezer. Famous Footware in Wasilla is looking for a shoe salesman. Sarah loves shoes, so maybe this would be an ideal fit!?
