Sarah Palin raises $25,000 for Hillary Clinton's election campaign

Sarah Palin probably wasn’t expecting to be the catalyst of a $25,000 election campaign boost for her Democrat opponent Hillary Clinton.  How? By not choosing her props carefully enough.

During a speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit last week, she whipped out a Ready for Hillary PAC magnet.

“I’m ready for Hillary, are you? Are you coming?” she told her largely Republican audience.

“Hey Iowa, can anyone stop Hillary? To borrow a phrase, ‘Yes we can!’ And it starts here and it starts now.”

Luckily for the Ready for Hillary campaign, they were. And tweeted an image of the event along with a link to a fundraising email, asking donors to give $20.16 to own a car magnet just like Palin’s.

The campaign’s HQ have since confirmed the following: “Sarah Palin inadvertently gave herself a new title — Co-Chair of Ready for Hillary’s National Finance Council!

“Yesterday, we sent an email to our supporters telling you how Sarah Palin held up a Ready for Hillary car magnet during a recent speech.

“The response we got was overwhelming — hundreds of supporters stepped up and Sarah ended up raising Ready for Hillary over $25,000 in grassroots donations.

“Here’s the kicker — by raising $25,000, Sarah officially qualifies as a Co-Chair of our National Finance Council.

“(We will wait until Sarah calls before officially adding her name to the list.)”

Palin is so far yet to respond. This isn't the first time Palin has inadvertently backed the Democrats. In 2008, Palin wears 'Vote Democrat' scarf, she wore 'Vote Democrat' scarf at Republican rally.
