The Politico's Ben Smith wrote an interesting piece on the amount of money Hillary Clinton's campaign consultants are paid. In the second-quarter Karen Hicks collected a cool $66,000 while Mary Elizabeth Purdy was paid $21, 000 for her services. In 2004, Hicks was Howard Dean's New Hampshire State Director. She is currently Clinton's national field director. While, Mrs. Purdy is a "a senior advisor" to Senator Clinton.
