Here is the latest hysterical overreaction by the Anchorage Daily News to a what is really a non-story involving Sarah Palin.
Palin-obsessed reporter Lisa Demer (above) flipped out when she learned SarahPAC received a request from the FEC for more information and requested correction of a filing mistake. Demer filed a piece with the headline "SarahPAC taken to task by feds for illegal contributions." (The ADN headline has since been changed but below is a screen grab of the original headline.)
You wouldn't know it from Demers' piece, but according to Daniel Terrapin, these requests from FEC are routine.
"...these letters are common. A few other PACs that have received similar letters, called "Requests For Additional Information (RFAI)", from the FEC include: Barack Obama's Hopefund, Inc. with 16; John Kerry's Citizen Soldier Fund with 17; Mitt Romney's Free and Strong America PAC Inc. with 9; and many others."Did you see ADN reporter Lisa Demers -- or McClatchy -- publish a story about an Obama PAC being "taken to task by the feds" after Obama's PAC got the same routine letter from the FEC? Didn't think so.
