Ex-Specter-atin’

From the Los Angeles Times:

When he announced the other day that he was switching to the Democratic Party, Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter offered to return campaign donations from any contributors who might take offense.

Turns out that includes a lot of his Senate Republican colleagues who lent money to the cause.

Georgia Republican Johnny Isakson was first in line — asking Specter to return his $5,000 leadership political action committee contribution. Other Republicans requesting refunds on behalf of their PACs: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky ($10,000), Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander ($5,000), Texas Sen. John Cornyn ($5,000) and Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker ($5,000).

Shopping: The Captain Underpants campaign embraces yet another Bush administration strategery!

From the New York Daily News:

WASHINGTON – Lipstick isn’t the only difference between America’s top hockey mom and a pit bull.

Sarah Palin also has a spectacular new wardrobe, and Republican campaign donors picked up the breathtaking tab.

The Republican National Committee spent $150,000 on clothing and accessories for the vice presidential candidate and her family since early September, according to a report by the Politico Web site.

Hey, kids! $150,000 is the equivalent of 375 John Edwards haircuts! 😀

Man of the Schmear

From The Crypt at Politico:

Money can’t buy him love, but John McCain-backing Joe Lieberman is hoping a little cash will diffuse Democrats’ anger towards him — and help him keep his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Public Works Committee.

After forking over $100,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee last year, the Connecticut Democrat-turned-independent has written a second $100,000 check to DSCC Chairman Chuck Schumer in recent days, according to a people familiar with the situation.

PAC of Thieves or Thief of PACs?

From Congressional Quarterly:

The man at the center of a burgeoning fiscal scandal involving the National Republican Congressional Committee served as treasurer for dozens of political fundraising committees, and lawmakers are quickly distancing themselves from him.

At least 10 members of Congress have dropped Christopher J. Ward as treasurer of their re-election campaigns or political action committees.
