Flaherty Nabs Some Small Change

Michael Flaherty took in $96,928 for the month -- almost $20,000 from ZIP 02127 -- which is OK but not stellar (especially for St. Patty's day!). The question, of course, is whether this is his low-hanging fruit and now it gets tough, or if this is just the ramp-up of the fundraising operation.

Regardless, it's certainly not on par with Mayor McChicken, who is raking in the cash despite his unwillingness to actually declare himself a candidate.

Flaherty spent $64,606 for the month, mostly on consultants and fundraising expenses.

Worth noting that by my count, roughly 160 individuals contributed $50 or less during the month. I know that the campaign is trying to get people onto a scheduled payment plan (ie, $50/mo. for 10 months), so it's likely that many of those 160 will ultimately contribute the maximum $500 a pop.
