For years Sarah Palin has been using SarahPAC to entice people to give her money. Elderly and retired innocent people were the primary donors to SarahPAC. From the beginning SarahPAC was used by Sarah Palin to fund her extravagant lifestyle. While purporting to support political candidates that were fiscally conservative, Palin was guilty of excessive spending. For example in the 2016 election cycle, Palin’s Sarah PAC spent $830,000 on consultants but only gave candidates for office $82,500. Thus only 10% of the funds raised went to candidates, and Sarah paid “consultants” to promote herself. Sarah’s PAC also spent $168,000 on travel and lodging expenses during the 2016 election, thus funding Sarah elaborate lifestyle.
Even at the height of donations, Sarah PAC raised $5.6 million and spent $4.3 million. Just $509,000 of that total — less than 12 percent of total expenditures — went to either candidates or political/party committ
What the closure of Palin’s PAC — and the remarkably small amount of spending on actual candidates for office — makes clear is that “a) her time as a national leader for Republicans is over and b) Palin’s prime interest was never really anything other than promoting her own political brand.” “Promoting her own political brand” translates into “promoting herself.” As she has made clear she is not loyal to one politicians ideology. She is only loyal to herself. Ask Ted Cruz and Rick Perry about her loyalty, or lack thereof.
