    and SEIU are involved.  They both are pro-worker.  I trust Jane on class issues.

      Looks like she's pulling in $2K a month for this gig. How many hours a month does she devote to the PAC's work?

      •  plus travel expenses (0+ / 0-)

        Travel, for what, I know not, but over the last 6 months of 2008 she (or FireDogLake) was reimbursed several grand for travel, too.

        •  point of comparison (0+ / 0-)

          I was just leafing through Blue America PAC's FEC filings. They were the initial vessel for donations to the "Accountability Now/Strange Befellows (Ron Paul)" FISA protest campaign.

          If you look at a doc titled "miscellaneous report to FEC" dated 11/22/2006, Howard Klein, treasurer and administrator, has an addendum to his hand-filled report stating that there are virtually no administrative fees for Blue America PAC, and no paid staff.

          They were, at the time, making ad buys for the 2006 elections, active as soon as they were created, pretty much. Their only administrative fee went to Auburn Quad (parent/owner of ActBlue?).

          •  interesting tidbit (0+ / 0-)

            Looks like Lou Reed, musician, NYC, was one of the first contributors to Blue America PAC.

            Pretty cool!
