Going Rogue: Palin’s Fundraising Ploy?

No political book tour would be complete without an accompanying fundraising pitch. So it’s no surprise that virtually minutes after Sarah Palin’s new book hit the shelves Monday, her political action committee sent out a letter to supporters asking for a donation to further the work of the PAC, which will work as “Commonsense Conservatives for everyday, hardworking Americans by tackling issues that you care about and by helping candidates who will stand up for our nation.” Signed with “an Alaska heart,” the letter notes an added bonus to donating: Anyone who chips in $100 or more can get a signed copy of Going Rogue. Of course, less affluent Palin-lovers can still pick up the book for $14.50 from Amazon.
