A PAC run by progressive media personality Krystal Ball has paid more money for her salary than it has given in support of Democratic congressional candidates.
The stated mission of the Ball-run People's House Project is to support "working- and middle-class Democratic House candidates in the Midwest and Appalachian states."
Of $115,000 in total expenditures, only $3,250 — less than 3 percent of all money raised — was donated to Democratic House candidates.
Of the amount donated, $2,250 went to the campaign of Richard Ojeda, a candidate for West Virginia's 3rd Congressional District.
The People's House Project launched last April and argued that the Democratic Party "needs to recruit and nurture a different sort of candidate," particularly from states in middle America.
