Last fall Arizona Governor and finger-wagging expert Jan Brewer launched Jan PAC, her political action committee that is focused on, she writes:
• Securing the border & restoring integrity to our immigration system
• Fighting ObamaCare
• Creating jobs – Getting Americans back to work
• Reducing the size of government
As the website says, if you donate $100 or more, you'll also receive an autographed copy of Brewer's book, Scorpions for Breakfast, which was a dead-ender until Fingergate propelled it to the top of the charts. I get all verklempt just thinking about it -- a signed copy!
My new book, Scorpions for Breakfast, describes my ongoing fight against President Obama, Attorney General Holder and Secretary Napolitano to stop the illegal immigration crisis facing our country. I will continue fighting until the border is secure for all Americans!
Yeah, because even though border crossings are down considerably, and even though Arizona has a shit load of other problems -- education, healthcare, jobs -- Brewer's "ongoing fight with Obama" over nonexistent headless bodies is what really matters.
According to a story today at Talking Points Memo, the Governor isn't really using that PAC money to battle immigration or overturn the President's healthcare program. Instead, she's using it to buy her own book.
The governor had raised only about $22,000 for Jan PAC by the end of 2011 and spent nearly a quarter of the cash buying books from Amazon and paying a bill at the luxurious Waldorf Astoria hotel in Orlando, Fla. The rest of the money is still in the bank. Brewer spent $3,423 on books and shipping from the online retailer, according to the financial reports. TPM
Since her infamous tarmac encounter with President Obama, the ALEC tool Brewer has been using the episode to raise cash for Jan PAC, and lying about the entire thing:
Brewer has posted a photo of her pointing her finger at the president -- after meeting him when Air Force One touched down outside of Phoenix on Wednesday -- on her political action committee website, Jan PAC. However, she seems to be singing a new tune about what was captured in the photo. "I was telling him, 'You have ONE more year,'" she writes on the website. HuffPo
Yeah, I'm sure she said that. What an ass. Is that enough red meat for the base? Maybe she could take on the nasty union bosses too. In the meantime, please send your checks to Mag PAC and I'll fight all of Arizona's lunatic issues, as long as I can use your donation to buy my book, Is That Jan Brewer or a Saddlebag for Breakfast?
