    Political Candidates Crowdfunding

    Support Averil Power for Dáil Éireann on icrowdfund.ie
    We believe it is in the country's interest that there are strong independent TDs who can speak knowledgeably on issues that are of a local and national interest, and we believe Averil is the best person who can do this for Dublin Bay North.
    set up by 'Friends of Averil Power' after 30 days with a goal of 10k it got no donations as it finished a few days ago.
    theres a name behind the group he campaigned with Power on a recent campaign.

    AAA Election Appeal AAA has set up an crowdfunding appeal also

    Is Elect Paul McAuliffe to Dáil Éireann set up not by himself but by 'Elect Paul McAuliffe to Dáil Éireann' This was set up by https://irishelectionliterature.word...nacha-maguire/
    is that his election agent?

    The residents of Dublin North West face a choice at the next General Election – elect a progressive community focused TD who will get things done for our community and for our country or elect candidates driven by harsh ideology of either left or right.
    It has a goal of 20k over 90 days.
    is it trying to follow the pattern that was used for the Marriage Equality referendum of Third Parties registering campaigning and fundraising LGBT Ltd / Yes Equality - Standards in Public Office Commission

    America like PACs? or are either of these people their election agents?

    if you raise over 100 to campaign in election you have to register as Third Party Third Party Forms - Standards in Public Office Commission


    you can some other Independent candidates tried to fundraise and didn't get much money https://www.icrowdfund.ie/campaigns/category/politics/

    It was her mates that made people so broke that even if they wanted to, they could not afford to give her anything.

    if they raise over a 100 euro Register of Third Parties - Standards in Public Office Commission but is this being done by their elections agent, where they would just submit election expenditure in the normal way or are they Third Partys? I asked McCauliffe.

    another kind of semi-public fundraising by a party https://paulmurphy.nationbuilder.com/donate says it goes to Anti-Austerity Allliance whos registration is still pending Register of Third Parties - Standards in Public Office Commission

    Paul Murphy ‏@paulmurphyAAA 31 Aug 2015 A lot of ppl have contacted looking to donate to AAA to hitback at #PoliticalPolicing. You can do it here http://antiausterityalliance.ie/donate/ . Thanks!

    they already got siginifcant amount of money, and it interesting that it automates publishing who donated but you can turn that off (thus semi-public)
