Palin's PAC Spent More Money On Books Than It Gave To Candidates

Hotline OnCall's Reid Wilson reports that Sarah Palin's political group, Sarah PAC, spent more money buying copies of her memoir than it donated to candidates seeking federal office. Sarah PAC gave copies of the book to donors (effectively selling them for political contributions, just as many political groups hawk gear), so that's why it spent $47,777 on copies of "Going Rogue," a few thousand more than it donated to candidates.
