The American Spectator is asking for $26,000 in donations to cover a shortfall due to increased printing costs, Joe Strupp at Media Matters reports.

The letter states that the money is needed “to fill the $26,000 shortfall created by the perverse incentives of the liberal agenda.”

“An American Spectator development director confirmed to Media Matters that the donation request was genuine, but also could not explain the link to liberal policies,” Strupp adds.

The letter also mentions that donors are mailed less paper, so “monthly donors CUT DOWN PAPER COSTS.” Er…yeah.
