Essential Estrogen: Pettengill - Answers to more PACs as a Republican
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
Dawn Pettengill represents the 39th House District at the Iowa State
House. She has served on both sides of the aisle. Her first term she
served as a Democrat. She was re-elected to serve another term as a
Democrat. In May of 2007 she wrote a letter to her constituents to
inform them of her switch to the Republican Party. It's not often that
politicians switch parties. She makes an interesting case study. This
afternoon I was given the PAC donations total from her campaigns in
2004, 2006 and 2008. Her 2004 donation total from PACs was $44,155.
She collected $37,050 for her 2006 campaign. The largest amount of
funding from PACs came during her 2008 campaign, $56,625.
