Roll Call gets its hands on Tea Party checkbook

Posted on March 25, 2014 

Ever wonder what the grass roots Tea Party spends its money on? RollCall has done the legwork for you here.

An example:

 Club for Growth President Chris Chocola earned $510,786, from mid-2012 to mid-2013, tax records for the group’s advocacy arm show, pushing his election-cycle earnings to more than $1 million. The Tea Party Express PAC raised $10 million in the 2012 cycle, more than three-quarters of it from donations of less than $200. But the group made only $259,500 in campaign contributions and $686,124 in independent campaign expenditures in that election, public records show.
