go down the page on that link ... another contribution looks suspect ... same day, same hometown, same last name

Gudrun Letica
1567 Island Lane
Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302
Information Requested/Information Requested

NOTE ON THE SOURCES: to confirm their common address, follow the link for "home address" and scroll down the page to "contributor info", and under the line for "last name/PAC or other," just type in "Saad" and hit "search." Henry and Mara Letica Saad are about halfway down the page.

I found this list of Ms. Mara Letica Saad's contributions to be by far the most comprehensive.


As interesting as your main point was, I found looking at the contributions and expenditures of the Swift Boat Dupes for the Far Right to be most interesting. Bob Perry, Texas homebuilder who basically bought the Texas Legislature - not that they were very expensive - gave over 5 million dollars to this effort. They spent over 25 million dollars on media buys.

Is this country great or what?

Here are links to Saad's own donations to GOP candidates — and to Spencer Abraham's Senate campaign. (That is interesting, because Abraham held open seats on the 6th Circuit by putting blue-slip type holds on Clinton's nominees to the 6th Circuit from the state of Michigan.)

Michigan Circuit Judge Saad gave $6,350 since 1994 to GOP causes, including $2000 to Bush in 2003, and also

includes $3,250 to Spencer Abraham's campaign from Henry Saad since between 1994 and 2000 (in 8 donations in amounts between $250 to $1000)

- - found here and here.

That's in addition to $14,000 to Abraham from Saad's wife Mara (in 1994, 1995 and mostly in 2000), and $11,000 more to Abraham from Saad's inlaws (in 1994, 1995, 1999 and 2000). Details below.

His wife Mara Letica gave to Spencer's campaign in 2000, shown here. This campaign summary for Abraham's Senate campaign shows her as perhaps his #1 contributor for 2000, top of the list, with one donation of $10 K, and a second one further down for $2 K. She contributed to Abraham in years before 2000 also --->

Letica's family, too, gave to the Abraham campaign, another $6,000, (from her brother Anton and her parents (Ilija and Gudron) in 1999-2000. And another $9,000 in 1994 and 1996 from the family, including from Mara.

All in all, $25,000 from Mara Letica's family to Abraham's campaign -->>> with $14,000 of that coming straight from Mara. PLUS, $3,250 direct from Henry Saad to the Abraham election effort.
