One million dollars is a big political contribution. It’s even bigger for a first-time political donor who lives in a $50,000 house.
Yet that’s apparently the donation Sherry Huff, an accountant in Rossville, Ga., decided to give.
Huff is listed on federal disclosure records as the source of funding for a Republican super PAC that spent big against President Obama’s reelection last year. She was the primary source of funding for a $1 million billboard campaign highlighting Obama’s support for abortion rights and gay marriage.
The address listed along with Huff’s contribution — and where she is registered to vote — is a modest single-story home worth $50,398, according to records assembled by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).
“I didn’t like the way the election was looking,” Huff wrote in an e-mail message to The Washington Post. “Desperate times call for desperate measures.”
