This is the same AZGOP that is $100,000+ in debt, showed only $33,000 cash-on-hand in its October FEC finance report and only $4,000 cash-on-hand in its latest financial disclosure to the Arizona Secretary of State.
Considering that the AZGOP spends so much money on fundraising yet makes so little back in donations, this $6,000 is a slap in the face to all the small dollar, naïve donors who sent in a check to Morrissey for $10, $25 or $50.
The party is required to file because they made a $6,000 contribution via Rob Haney to “elect Russell Pearce” in the recall election. The AZGOP is subject to a $50 penalty, per day, until it submits a new finance report – another waste of donor dollars.
The fiasco continues since Rob Haney’s IE group is as much a sham organization as Olivia Cortes was a candidate. The Maricopa County GOP is the sponsoring organization of Haney’s IE group and made just one expenditure through October 19, 2011 – $7,500 to Constantin Querard’s IE group, Arizona Deserves the Best.
“Who’s going to give me a better price than me? It would cost my group more to go somewhere else.” — Political consultant Constantin Querard, whose company was hired by an independent expenditure group he runs to produce mailers to benefit Senate President Russell Pearce.
