Fred Thompson PAC

WHAT did Fred Thompson's son, Daniel, do to earn the more than $170,000 that his firm, Daniel Thompson Associates, was paid from his father's federal political action committee, the Fred D. Thompson PAC?
The records suggest he did next to nothing.
The elder Thompson, an undeclared presidential candidate, left the Senate at the start of 2003. He started The Fred D. Thompson PAC with $378,601 transferred from his senatorial campaign committee.(LINK)
The above is perfectly legal. Here is the thing about the Fred Thompson PAC - In the first two years the PAC donated about 7 percent of its assets to candidates and gave 25 percent to Fred's son Daniel.
To date, the PAC has paid $176,000 to the son's firm, $46,000 for federal races, $35,000 in other political donations and $62,700 to charity. The senator's son, in other words, accounts for more than half the outlays(LINK)
I think we can see what is going on here. Legal yes, but it is enlightening to read a article that compares this to the work of Jessee Jackson giving his wife a no show job. The most revealing thing is this :
The PAC appears to have had no office, no phone and no employees other than Daniel Thompson.
And of course this:
Daniel Thompson did not reply to efforts to contact him.

Apparently, you need to look into who gets paid what for all politician's PAC's.

Fred's son wasn't paid beans compared to any and all others AND he did a heck of a lot more work.

I find that I know much more of the truth when I don't rely on the Tickle-up-my-leg media for my information...especially when it's about a true Conservative. Of course, if you're simply serving your agenda, this logic wouldn't help you out.
