The wait is over and Christine O’Donnell’s Financial Disclosure has finally been made public. Christine O’Donnell’s Financial Disclosure covering the period from 3/09 to 6/10.
Christine O’Donnell’s report lists only two sources of earned income for the 15 month reporting period. “Earned Income” is defined on the document as anything “more than $200 from any reportable source in the reporting period.”
One source of earned income for Christine O’Donnell was a $3000 payment for “services rendered” from In Service America, which appears to be a telemarketing firm that also does event management out of Forest, Virginia. The other listed source of earned income for O’Donnell was a $2,800 payment from Family First, in Lebanon, Ohio.
Both of the organizations that O’Donnell earned income from in the period from 3/09 to 6/10 were out of state operations.
And that’s what Christine O’Donnell has listed as “earned income” for the 15 month time period from 3/09 to 6/10. That breaks down to an average of $386.66 a month, or less than $13.00 a day in income over a 15 month period.
This was mostly during a period of time when Christine O’Donnell was still carrying over $20,000 in debt from her 2008 Senate Campaign.
Interestingly, Family First, one of her two reported sources of earned income, describes themselves on their website as “…a conservative political action committee serving Ohio and Northern Kentucky. We operate with donations and the volunteer help of citizens who are concerned about our country. Together we can elect conservatives, one office at a time!”
Can someone tell me why a candidate for the US Senate is taking A PAYCHECK from a political action committee whose sole aim is to elect people to office? Is that even legal?
