According to media reports, Judge Deborah Bell Paseur’s campaign has received over a thousand individual donations during the last reporting period, adding to the hundreds of contributions already supporting her campaign for the Alabama Supreme Court.
During the last filing period, the Paseur Campaign received a total of 1,135 contributions totaling $425,175.33, bringing the total number of donations to 1,417 and the total amount raised to $531,009.44. The campaign’s cash on hand at the end of the filing period was $72,174.64. Marion Steinfels, campaign manager of the Paseur Campaign, observed:
Judge Paseur is supported by thousands of donors and volunteers across the state. We are incredibly proud and encouraged by the overwhelming number of these supporters who come from all walks of life. Judge Paseur has such a wide range of support because of her proven record as a judge who is tough but fair, her support from members of the law enforcement community and her commitment to continuing her extensive work outside the courtroom to keep children and young adults out of trouble and out of the legal system.
The GOP candidate, Greg Shaw, has received a total of $591,000 according to the Associated Press. Interestingly, 95% of the Shaw money came from PACs that passed on money to the campaign. The largest amounts came from The Alabama Civil Justice Reform Committee Pac, Biz Pac and Lawsuit Reform Pac of Alabama. Almost 100% of the funds coming to the Shaw campaign come from PACs associated directly with the giants of Corporate America and it’s clear they will be Shaw’s primary source of money and support. It will be most interesting to see how this is received by Alabama citizens who are witnessing what the arrogance and greed of corporate executives – with the help of the Bush Administration – have done to our nation’s economy over the past eight years.
