How big?

By Times Staff Writer
Published April 2, 2006

In news releases and letters to Congress, Citizens Against Government Waste says it has "more than 1-million members and supporters."

That number includes paid members, as well as anyone who has signed up for the group's mailing lists, according to CAGW president Tom Schatz. He would not disclose the number of members, but it can be estimated from the group's individual contributions (about $3.8-million in 2004) and the average contribution ($25). That would indicate that CAGW has about 150,000 members.
