Will Censure for Cash

By |

We know Russ Feingold's censure resolution made for great political theatre, but how much was the MoveOn-pleasing gambit worth, in dollar terms?

About $175,ooo as measured by the boost to Russ' Progressive Patriots PAC.

He's going to have to do better than that if he hopes to challenge Hillary, the Democrats' queen of cash. Without breaking a sweat — or pandering to DailyKos — Clinton's PAC still cleared about $100K more than Feingold's in March.

But not all of Hillary's numbers are so rosy. A full forty-one percent of America would "definitely vote against her" in a presidential race, compared to a core support that barely registers twenty-five percent.
