Amy Stephens’ Q4 Report is Even WORSE Than You Thought

Republican Amy Stephens quietly announced her Q4 (2013) fundraising numbers late on Friday afternoon, and it was no surprise as to why: With an embarrassingly-low $51,000 raised in her first full fundraising period, her campaign resembled a race horse bursting out of the starting gates and immediately falling face first into the dirt. 

We thought Stephens' fundraising numbers were bad already, but that was before we saw her official Quarterly Report filed with the FEC. Things are actually much worse for Stephens. Much, much worse. Here's the breakdown:

AMOUNT RAISED: $51,654
AMOUNT SPENT:    $3,462
CASH ON HAND:   $48,192
DEBTS & OBLIGATIONS:  $59,711

Yeah, that's not good. Stephens currently owes $11,000 MORE than she has in the bank. She obviously doesn't have to worry about paying back those loans anytime soon, but it creates a different kind of pressure if you aren't raising enough money to even cover your debts. Can Stephens really put together the resources for a serious statewide campaign?

    Hey Moddy???

    Aren't you still getting paid anymore to do a little bit of DC on these pesky recurring facts ???

    • Diogenesdemar says:

      Well, since Moddy hasn't floated even a single electron here in excuse explanation of his former Senatorial favorite/BFFL, I pretty much have to conclude that his is also one of those unpaid bills/debts??!!??

      Like the man said, if you ever want one true friend in politics, you oughta' get yourself a dog . . .

      In the meantime, Moddy — lots of folks since the Bush collapse absolutley swear by catfood . . . at least until you get another paying gig?

    Maybe her campaign "drive" can include driving around the state ad infinitum, charging her campaign $0.56 per mile plus motels and meals … nice motels and meals.  Hey, it's party time … remember the gubernatorial contest four years ago.

    She has incurred 38K to a DC consultant / ad agency.  Hope they write it off.

      These are bills outstanding, not loans.  It is even worse than Pols reported.

        hmmm… sounds like maybe you do know how stuff works. That would mean that you know that most of what you say here is nonsense from spin central. You probably also know that, unlike your Borg base, we won't buy it but imagine you are serving the cause by getting us all… yawn, sorry… riled up.

          Right-wing trolls will continue to lie, distort, corrupt, spin and obfuscate so long as there is breath in their bodies, They cannot do otherwise, evidently. To them, any lie in support of "the cause" is acceptible. Amoraility is its own reward.

  6. ModeratusModeratus says:

    Pols, you admit that she doesn't have to pay this money back right away, so it's not an offsetting amount. Why are you being dishonest? Why are you spending so much time attacking Amy Stephens if she is a nobody?

    We see right through you.
