Among Romney Super PACís Corporate Donors, Big Names Not All Easy to Spot (List of Romney enablers)

Restore Our Future, the super PAC supporting Mitt Romney’s presidential candidacy, raised $7 million in January, topping off its deep reservoir of funds and allowing the group to flood media markets from Sioux City to Sarasota with some $14 million in advertising. Its FEC disclosure on Monday revealed that its extensive effort to elevate Romney and bury the competition relied on a set of donors that runs the gamut from famous heirs and CEOs to the most opaque and controversial kind of corporate interests.

Unlike its competitors, Restore Our Future doesn’t have a lone high-profile benefactor, like Newt Gingrich has in Sheldon Adelson or Rick Santorum has in Foster Friess. But Romney’s super PAC doesn’t lack for big-name individual donors: Hewlett-Packard CEO and former California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman gave $100,000 in January, as did Alice and Jim Walton of the Walmart fortune. The Marriott brothers, J.W. and Richard, each gave $250,000. (Romney once sat on the company’s board, and his given name Willard was taken from the late John Willard Marriott Sr., the hotel chain’s founder.) Oklahoma mine mogul Joseph Craft gave $500,000, as did hedge funder Bruce Kovner and David Lisonbee, who stared the Utah vitamin company 4Life Research.

This is a GREAT article, thank you for posting it.

We in FR should make a BIG DEAL of the people in this list!... We should examine it and discuss it, hash it and rehash it to nausea. Unfortunately, there is so much stuff, most people won't even see it. I wish there was some place in FR where we could place this article permanently (and others of the same subject) so that people could actually see who are the ones who are supporting Shitty-Romney.

There is this perception everywhere that we conservatives in general, and more so Social-Conservatives are just a bunch of hicks too stupid to even notice this list, much less do something about it.

I think we should at least bring the most prominent names into the spot light. Throw their names around, just so that people will remember some of them when they try to cash in.
