Citizens United Lawyer James Bopp Jr. Sets Up Super PAC - NYTimes.com
While the comedian Stephen Colbert’s plan to form a so-called Super PAC to raise money for federal elections attracted some attention last week, another Super PAC formed by a key Republican campaign lawyer filed registration papers with the Federal Election Commission. The Republican Super PAC Inc., formed by James Bopp Jr., an Indiana lawyer, and Roger Villere, chairman of the Louisiana Republican Party, is designed to be a vehicle for unlimited contributions toward independent expenditures in support of Republican candidates at the national and state levels.
seattlesh-Seattle:Funny how Republicans have no problem tapping their wealthy private and corporate benefactors for millions to form a superfund PAC for re-election but can't ask them to pay their fair share of taxes to help cover budget shortfalls. For this they turn to the elderly on Social Security and Medicare.
