Secret Companies Donate Millions To Presidential Hopeful Mitt Romney Then Disappear
Here’s GOP fundraising for you.
Three firms gave $1 million apiece to Restore Our Future, a conservative “super PAC” planning to spend millions to help Romney’s White House bid. One of those companies was W. Spann LLC, a mysterious New York-based company that apparently closed up shop last month shortly after its contribution to the pro-Romney PAC. As NBC News’s Michael Isikoff reports, the company was formed in March by Boston estate tax lawyer Cameron Casey and listed a midtown Manhattan address where the landlord says there’s no record of the firm being a tenant. The company gave $1 million to Restore Our Future on April 28, and according to records obtained by Isikoff, dissolved on July 12th, just two weeks before the pro-Romney PAC disclosed its donors to the Federal Election Commission. There’s no indication in the records of what the company did or who its owners or principals were. Casey did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The other two companies, which share a Utah address, are mysteries as well.
I knew this crap was going to happen. Remember last year the big Supreme Court Decision that gave companies the right to donate as much as they want to Political Campaigns? The one that the GOP hailed as progress, while everyone else said it was going to prove to be a huge mess. Yep…that’s the one. Now mystery companies can set up and disappear over night and buy whatever candidate they want.
