TPM: Brewer Spending PAC Funds on Her Own Book

Posted By on Thu, Feb 2, 2012 at 2:00 PM

Nick R. Martin at Talking Points Memo finds out how Gov. Jan Brewer is spending her Jan PAC money—and it doesn't seem to be dedicated to sealing the border:

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) launched a special fundraising political action committee in October, pledging to use the money to fight illegal immigration and take on other issues she believes in. But based on financial disclosures filed this week, she has so far used it to do little more than buy copies of her own book.

The governor had raised only about $22,000 for Jan PAC by the end of 2011 and spent nearly a quarter of the cash, buying books from Amazon and paying a bill at the luxurious Waldorf Astoria hotel in Orlando, Fla. The rest of the money is still in the bank.
