Sarah Palin's political action committee paid $10,000 in October to a consulting firm that also works for George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist who is a left-wing bogeyman to many of Palin's supporters.
Salon first reported earlier this month that Palin foreign policy advisor Randy Scheunemann has for many years done lobbying work for Soros' Open Society Policy Center. Scheunemann's firm, Orion Strategies, received the $10,000 payment from Sarah PAC on Oct. 28 for "issue consulting," according to a new campaign finance filing.
Palin has already faced a bit of criticism from the right for her link to Soros. But as of late October, Orion was still working for the Open Society Policy Center, lobbying records show.
