Today was the deadline for campaign finance reports in Vermont. I’ve been out all day and haven’t had a chance to pore over the reports, but I couldn’t resist taking a quick peek at Vermonter(s) First, the conservative Super PAC almost entirely funded by camera-shy heiress Lenore Broughton.
Drum roll, please…
Her cash donations to Vermonter First for the entire campaign season: $1,002,500.
Say it like Dr. Evil: One MEEEEEELLLyun dollars!
In the past month, VF got three donations totaling $650 from individuals not named “Lenore Broughton,” plus a hearty $2,500 from the Virginia-based National Right to Work Committee. But basically, all the money was Lenore’s.
VF reported total expenditures of $952,435.92, so there’s still fifty grand or so left in the kitty.
Our congratulations to Lenore Broughton for squandering a million dollars and getting absolutely Jack Squat in terms of election victories. So does Tayt Brooks still have a job?
