super pac man mitt romney edition political action committee Fyte The Right! Issue #1

Super PACs, or political action committees, are independent expenditure only committees which are allowed to raise unlimited funds for corporations, unions, and individuals. Super PACs are not allowed to coordinate directly with candidates or political parties since they are mandated to act independently. Candidates do however communicate to their super PACs through the media, and despite being labeled as ‘outside’ groups, they rarely are. Restore Our Future, a group supporting Mitt Romney, has spent $12.3 million (so far) in their attempt to secure the former Massachusetts governor the presidential nomination. Not only have their ads been successful; but some analysts have argued that they are directly responsible for ending the campaigns of Romney opponents including Herman Cain and Michelle Bachman. If you agree that money in politics is a gateway to corruption, then visit getmoneyout.com and do your part to reclaim our democracy.
