    Not sure, but some interesting things might be happening at National. I got a call over the weekend from a girl named Sarah from LP headquarters, asking for monthly pledges. First time I’ve ever gotten a call from National on anything. She just started a week ago from what she told me. Sounded very pleasant on the phone.

    I think I’m going to start my monthly pledge this week, something small.

    The LNC Financial Implosion

    I have spent the time with the LPUS FEC reports needed to examine fundraising by the LNC over the past decade.

    The numbers are staggering. Looking backward from the present to 1996, fundraising has collapsed, to under $100,000 for August 2005. In the prior nonelection year, the lowest two-month-average was still $110,000 per month.

    Totals like those of the past four months—under $110,000 per month—have not been seen with any regularity since 1995, when the dollar was worth far more.

    The following column lists the month, year, and income of the LNC. We have some obscurity in 2001, when the LNC chose to hide income and expenditures by filing on a semiyearly basis. However, a million dollars in a half-year is 160 000-170 000 dollars per month, a total reached this year in only one month. Donations are running far below donations in any previous period, going back to the days when the LNC was headquartered in the more unfortunate parts of DC.

    Read Sean Haugh’s report on the last LNC meeting, visible at http://ncway.blogspot.com Entries for August 27 and a bit earlier. Do you see discussion of the budget issues? You can find reported a discussion that we need to do fundraising to replace the income lost when dues were shut off, but concern about current income is not strongly voiced by many LNC members.

    Not to worry, Mr. Phillies. I’m sure the addition of a cute girl to the party’s website will turn around the fundraising problem post haste.
