Angle Spends Big Money on Direct-Mail Firm

Salon reports that Sharron Angle has spent $600,000, or about 20% of total monies raised, on a direct mail firm with a less than stellar reputation based on the high fees it charges clients.  Among others who have disavowed the company, Rep. Joseph Cao (R-LA) dropped all ties with Base Connect after Talking Points Memo reported he was paying the firm 75 percent in fundraising fees.

It is worth nothing that Angle’s new communications director, Jordan Gehrke, worked for Base Connect in the past and before becoming an Angle staffer.
