Crazy Cindy hasn't had an actual job, you know, something that you do and get paid for in many, many years.
She tried writing books:
Her first book, published in December of 2005 is at Amazon.com Sales Rank: #841,307. Amazon.com Sales Rank: #841,308 is : The Official Patient's Sourcebook on Pancreatitis".
Her second book was published on April Fool's Day of 2006 is at Amazon.com Sales Rank: #468,712, just beating out "Practical HPLC Method Development, 2nd Edition" published in 1997.
Her put recent effort, published in September 2006, is currently showing Amazon.com Sales Rank: #1,303,398. I haven't been able to find out which book is #1,303,399, but I'll bet it's a pip!
Surprisingly, ALL these books are in-stock!
Sheehan tried making paid speeches:
Read the "Breaking News" item below to see how that's working out lately.
What to do? What to do?
Why not run for Congress? Against political powerhouse Nancy Pelosi?
It meets all Cindy's needs: it brings in the dollars and keeps Crazy Cindy in the spotlight. It's a rather faint spotlight, though. The mainstream media began losing interest in her when the public got tired of hearing the same old rants, over and over and over. She screeched "No blood for oil!" So where's the oil? She demanded the troops be brought home. Instead of listening to her, Congress sent in still more troops and now even the far-left New York Times admits that the troop surge has worked and things in Iraq are improving. Again and again this slogan-chanting paste-eater has been proven wrong. Aside from a handful of anti-American socialist ass-hats, no one finds her lunatic ravings entertaining any more.
When Cindy began attacking the Democrats in office, The MSM dropped her like a hot potato. Now only the extreme fringe media covers her campaign. It's more of a flashlight with tired batteries and a spotlight on a stage. Cindy needs attention, so she has entered a race she knows she can't win. The upside is that it's bringing in the dollars.
According to the Huffington post, Sheehan claims she has raised more than $300,000 in campaign donations source. Where did the money go? Not for radio and TV ads. Not for ad space in magazines and newspapers. She lists her campaign headquarters as her residence address (many candidates do this, in all fairness).
When Sheehan announced her retirement from the anti-war movement, she said:
"I have spent every available cent I got from the money a "grateful" country gave me when they killed my son and every penny that I have received in speaking or book fees since then."
"...my hospital bills from last summer (when I almost died) are in collection because I have used all my energy trying to stop this country from slaughtering innocent human beings."
The hospital bills she mentions were for having her uterus removed. She buried it under a bush in Crawford, Texas."
Between Casey's private life insurance policy and the government death benefit, we're looking at a minimum of $300,000. She used part of that money to buy land in Texas that she later sold for a $34,000 profit!
Then there's the money she got from speaking engagements. Her fees ranged as high as $11,000 per appearance source, and her minimum was $600. She spoke at least 30 times between August of 2005 and August of 2006. That's a minimum of $28,400.
The books probably brought in at least another $50,000.
Grand total - $412,400!!!
For a long time she lived rent-free, first at a friend's apartment in Berkeley and then at "Camp Casey" in Crawford. It's clear that she doesn't spend a lot on clothes or make-up. And she didn't spend it on her medical bills, that much we know.
Assuming that she had absolutely ZERO income after August 2006, she blew about $137,000 per year! WHERE'S THE MONEY, CINDY???
So now, here's Cindy, broke, by her own admission, asking for money, to run in an election she cannot possibly win. Maybe she learned something after watching Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton run for the White House? Hmmmmmm...
