You don’t need a crystal ball to forecast the future for Krystal Ball, a former MSNBC host and Democratic nominee for the U.S. Congress from Virginia. Ball’s political ambitions and career as a liberal media personality are about to take a turn for the worst.

A political action committee run by Ball has given candidates less than 3% of the money raised, with the bulk of it going to Ball’s favorite charity: the Me, Myself, and I Fund.

According to its website, the People’s House Project‘s mission is “to recruit and nurture a different sort of candidate. The candidates we support are deeply connected to and representative of their districts, have first-person experience with the problems faced by mid-income and working-class families, and are from walks of life not well represented in Congress.”

But according to the Washington Examiner:

Federal Election Commission records show that of the nearly $120,000 the group raised last year, $69,500 was paid out to Ball. 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. Another $1,000 was given to Karen Mallard, who is running in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District. People’s House Project ended the year with just over $34,000 in cash on hand, as well as $10,000 in debts owed.

The $69,500 that Ball received as pay stands as 60 percent of the total expenditures by the group. Overall, 75 percent of the $115,000 handed out went to payroll expenses.

Ball has attempted to whitewash her shenanigans by calling her income from the PAC “modest” and insisting that running it is her “full-time job.” Presumably in her world, that entitles her dip deeply into the cookie jar.

Her net worth is estimated to be $43 million.
