In his latest email broadcast under the auspices of "CT Citizens for Immigration Control," Streitz wrote:
"Sarah PAC as of 6/30/09 has raised $732,767 and disbursed $276,200 in expenses and given $10,000 in campaign contributions. One was $5,000 for Lisa Murkowski for US Senate (AK). The other was $5,000 for the 2010 primary for John McCain. The date of this disbursement was 6/23/09."
The above statement is true. The sentence that follows is a bald-faced lie, to wit:
"How many books would Sarah have sold if this were public knowledge in the fall of 2009?"
Since Streitz co-founded a Draft Committee, he should know full well that FEC disclosures come out every six months. SarahPAC's (spelled "Sarah PAC" in the FEC database) disbursements to John McCain and Lisa Murkowski were made before June 30, and those disclosures were released the month following. They were public knowledge for over two months before Going Rogue became available for pre-order on September 24, 2009 and books were published on November 17, 2009. The FEC disclosures of these disbursements were then four months old, and there were news stories pertaining to them during this time.
Streitz repeats the same rhetoric from his prior email. His pet issue is immigration, and he was forwarded videos which clearly indicated that Governor Palin's views on immigration were to secure our borders and not give illegal aliens benefits reserved for citizens. This was not good enough for him, and Streitz insists upon telling her what to do, and trying to mold her in his own image. For instance:
Senator John McCain is a dangerous man to the Republic. He stands for nothing but his own advancement and he has betrayed the Republican Party at every opportunity. "Hello, Sarah!"
Notice the snarky end. Governor Palin is not obeying the almighty Paul Streitz from CT, so now he's going to "set her straight." He continues....
At the time of the election, perhaps Sarah Palin could have been forgiven for her ideas on immigration (and lack of knowledge) because she was governor of Alaska, not Arizona.
Forgiven? By who? For what? She's against illegal immigration and wants the borders secured. Hello Streitz! The clause regarding her alleged lack of knowledge is laughable coming from a man who co-founded a committee drafting her to be President of the United States. So, what was the point of that exercise? He continues....
In the intervening months, she has done little but promote herself as a celebrity...
So, the Streitz path to being a 2012 Presidential candidate is to fade into obscurity and become a nonentity. So, the point of co-founding a committee drafting her for POTUS was....?
Fortunately, Streitz no longer holds a leadership position there and has been long gone. The 2012 Draft Sarah Committee is now operated by consummate professionals. Randy Highsmith is at the helm, and there are many organizers and volunteers who truly want Governor Palin to succeed in all that she does. They want her to be the POTUS candidate in 2012. They donate to SarahPAC and trust that their money is being used wisely to support candidates the Governor chooses to assist.
