Sen. Josh Hawley Salutes the Stupid Coup Troops

Proud Boy Lite, Sen. Josh Hawley is having a splendid new year, especially after cheering-on insurrection:

January was Sen. Josh Hawley’s best fundraising month—by far—since his 2018 election, with a flood of small-dollar donations more than eclipsing the corporate cash he lost after leading an effort to block certification of President Biden’s Electoral College win…

What’s new: According to a memo released by Hawley’s campaign on Monday, his political operation brought in $969,000 in January.

  • That’s more than Hawley’s campaign has raised in any single month since October 2018, just before he was elected to the Senate.
  • The average donation in January was $52, with contributions from roughly 12,000 new donors, according to the campaign. It now has roughly $2.1 million cash on hand.
  • “It is crystal clear that a strong majority of Missouri voters and donors stand firmly with Senator Hawley, in spite of the continued false attacks coming from the radical left,” says the memo by Hawley pollster Wes Anderson.

Well, that last assertion remains to be seen;  there’s nothing that indicates those 12K new donors are from Missouri, and anytime you see average donation your Spidy senses should flash into Larry Kudlow-hair-on-fire-BS territory. The article does make it clear that Hawley got $300K Ameros from a conservative PAC since he fomented insurrection on Jan. 6 but corporate PACs cut him off.

    Ah, well. I’ll be more careful, next time I begin to hope about one of these a–hats.

    What is it with these too tight suits? They all look like Lil’ Abner.

    Is it a compensatory thing, like jacked-up, de-engineered suburban assault vehicles with tires the size of Volkswagons and the hood ornament a perfect rendition of the human female reproductive system? Can’t quite wrap their grubby little fingers around the real world?

    The math doesn’t add up.
    969K divided by 12 K = average if $80.75
    969K divided by $52 = 18,634 – Oh! that would be donations, not donors.
    So some donors contributed at least twice, although that 300K twice would reduce, by a lot, the other donation amounts needed to hit those numbers.

      Oh, again!! I just realized those donations weren’t identified as all from new donors.
      That would mean roughly 6,500 old donors remained wtih him to hit those numbers without the 300K single donation.
      That seems more hopeful.
      Also, I should think these things through before I start posting.
