  • Hillary Clinton to Launch New PAC

    Hillary Clinton is planning to soon launch a new political action committee without the intention of making another run for public office. snip Clinton's PAC will be focused on "lifting up organizations that are the product of the energy and activism she has seen since the election, and existing groups that have been reignited and reinvigorated by that energy," a source familiar with the planning told Axios. snip Clinton will also return to The Harry Walker Agency for her paid speaking engagements. The agency has a webpage up inviting clients to book Clinton as a speaker.
  • George Soros is back in the game of funding local races for district attorney

    Billionaire political activist George Soros appears to be getting back in the game of funding local races for district attorney, this time trying to hand-pick the winner in the Philadelphia contest. snip In the 2016 campaign, Soros created local, independent expenditure committees or political action committees which allowed him to bypass the individual contribution limits on giving to a candidate's own committee. Soros was then able to spend unlimited amounts on mailers and television ads on behalf of the candidate, provided there was no coordination between the Soros-created PAC and the candidate. In most of the 2016 contests, the Soros...

    The New York Times ^ | 30 September 2016 | NICHOLAS CONFESSORE and RACHEL SHOREY
    Democrats denounced it as an assault on democracy and a sop to billionaires when the Supreme Court issued a ruling two years ago that loosened limits on campaign giving. But Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party leaders are now exploiting the decision, funneling tens of millions of dollars from their wealthiest donors into a handful of presidential swing states. The flow of money, documented in Federal Election Commission reports, shows Democrats expanding their fund-raising advantage in the final phase of the presidential race, defying expectations at the beginning of the campaign that Republicans would dominate the money chase. The shift has...

    In the newest episode of Clinton corruption, evidence has surfaced that the campaign has been coordinating with the Super PAC known as Correct the Record (CTR). Correct the Record hires people to comment on various internet sites to defend Hillary Clinton from baseless attacks, according to the groups Twitter account.

Over the course of 2016, CTR paid $115,571 in video consulting fees to a company named the Allenswood Group. However, the only client of the Allenswood Group is CTR. The most...

    These past few weeks have been quite interesting for Hillary Clinton. We learned that Clinton omitted one key email from the State Department, that Hillary's official State Department calendar is missing a lot of entries, and we were reminded that it can be quite lucrative to be a friend of Hillary. Now, courtesy of The Hill, we find that a super-PAC backing Clinton has accepted $200,000 in donations from a company holding multiple contracts with the federal government, despite a ban on such contributions. Said otherwise, the super-PAC is engaged in a pay-to-play deal. According to a review, Boston-based Suffolk...

    RNC Meeting Spring News 2016 and super PAC research | April 24, 2016 | Self - RNC spring convention observation
    In addition to "grass-roots" campaign workers, there are at least eight Super PACs backed by 'shadow elites' who are driven to defeat Donald Trump and they are banking on Ted Cruz. At least one of these super PAC leaders, Katie Packer of OPP, met behind closed doors at the RNC Spring Meeting this week in Florida. Packer states that a republican candidate should "uphold orthodox GOP ideology." This smacks of irony given her past allegiance with Romney/Ryan and Ryan's inability to uphold GOP principles as Speaker of the House. The super PACs are calling, texting, emailing, lobbying, and all-out wining...

    Donald Trump's presidential campaign last month warned a prominent pro-Trump super PAC which has put at least $1 million into advertising for the billionaire that it is not authorized to fundraise on the candidate's behalf in a formal letter sent by the campaign's legal counsel. The letter to the Great America PAC, signed by attorney Donald McGahn of Jones Day, stressed that the campaign believes the organization's efforts run counter to the anti-big money message Trump has emphasized on the campaign trail. It said that the PAC is "using the name, image and slogan of Donald J. Trump...

    Senator Ted Cruz has at least eight Super-PAC's assisting his presidential campaign; and according to a recording obtained by Politico a Cruz's campaign bundler was directing large donors toward one PAC specifically. The "Stand for Truth" PAC. However, the campaign appears to have, yet again, gone into the land of illegality with the following statement (via audio recording): "If you hit your max then we have a table for you that is the unlimited table," Keet Lewis, a bundler for the campaign and co-host of a Dec. 30 fundraiser in Dallas, says on the recording provided to POLITICO. "It can...
