Politico takes a look at Mike Huckabee's "leadership" PAC, which raised almost a half-million bucks last year and didn't give a dime to another candidate. It paid money to staff and others, including his daughter-in-law, and helped Huckabee get the Huckabee message out (which essentially is taken from Jesus — Mike Is Coming!)
Interesting that Politico focuses on how the PAC has gotten small donors to approve automatic charges, to the surprise of a few of them. At least one seemed happy, however, to view it as akin to tithing.
