Jeanine may have scaled back her political ambitions, but in the race for AG, she’s already spawned a remarkable number of fundraising committees.
There’s a simple, psychological lesson at play here: if you divide something up, you end up with more of it. Right?
To wit, these are her new committees and the amounts reported in their initial filings:
Jeanine Pirro for Attorney General, $36,400
Jeanine Pirro for Attorney General (Independence Primary), $5,400
Jeanine Pirro for Attorney General (Conservative Primary), $5,400
Jeanine Pirro for Attorney General (Republican Primary), $14,627
…and, most bafflingly…
Pirro ’07, $76,769.99
[UPDATE: Pirro spokesperson Anne Marie Corbalis reports that the Pirro of Pirro ’07 (a committee that, alas, raised more money than the other four Pirro committtees combined) is not, in fact, Jeanine. That Pirro is the lesser-known Onondaga County Executive, Nicholas Pirro.]
