Loss of chairmanship means loss of $$$

He's not exactly hurting for dough -- although he's so tight he'd never use his own money to run for office -- but Jim Sensenbrenner's fund-raising has shown some slippage.

It seems that the special interests, who give through political action committees, aren't as interested in giving when you're the ranking minority member of the House Judiciary Committee. When you're raising money, "chairman" has a nicer ring -- and much more ka-ching.

Sensenbrenner's PAC money is down 62% from the comparable period two years ago.

The Journal Sentinel's Dan Bice has the details.

We're told he's not even the ranking R. That’s Rep. Lamar Smith. Sensenbrenner’s only leadership post is as ranking member of the Global Warming Committee.
