HILLARY TRAIL$ THE PAC NY Post
By IAN BISHOP November 22, 2005 -- WASHINGTON — Approaching a critical election year, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's political-action committee has little cash to give other Democratic candidates.
Clinton appears to have drastically scaled back fund-raising operations for the once-rich HillPAC, letting its available cash dwindle to a microscopic $2,996, according to new federal fund-raising records.
It claims to hold $91,268 in the bank, but HillPAC is $88,272 in debt, with most of the money owed to consultant Gia Medeiros, who was canned after The Post revealed she embraced New Age spiritualism and once said 9/11 victims "weren't all good people."
HillPAC was created expressly to help other Democrats win at the polls, and spokeswoman Ann Lewis told The Post the committee still intends to hit its donation goals.
"HillPAC operates on an election-year cycle, not quarterly. Our fund-raising is on track," Lewis said.
While HillPAC's bank account has nose-dived in recent months, Clinton's official re-election committee, Friends of Hillary, has ballooned to nearly $14 million.
