Dick Morris Super PAC Gives $150K to Support McConnell & Graham

The super PAC founded by former Fox News contributor Dick Morris reported today it donated $150,000 to super PACs supporting Sens. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

Super PAC for America, founded by Morris, donated $100,000 on June 6 to Kentuckians for Strong Leadership, a super PAC whose “highest priority is to ensure that Kentucky’s own Senator Mitch McConnell is re-elected.”

Super PAC for America also gave $50,000 on June 11 to West Main Street Values PAC Inc., set up by allies of Graham.

Super PAC for America raised $4 million in the 2011-2012 cycle. The largest donation was $500,000 from the League of American Voters of Washington D.C., a nonprofit 501(c)(4) organization. Michael Reagan provides the introduction letter on their website and was also chairman of Super PAC for America in 2012. Super PAC for America made $1.5 million in independent expenditures in 2011-2012, including $1.1 million against Barack Obama and almost $400,000 supporting Mitt Romney. The committee paid Newsmax Media $1,715,707 for fundraising, website services and advertising. Some of those funds went to pay for the rental of the DickMorris.com Inc. email list.

Super PAC for America had $158,771 cash on hand as of June 30.

    It is a known fact so-called conservative PAC’s will fund Republicans and TEA party enthusiast will go out for their candidates. But, at the end of the day is the grassroots level of the Democratic base to get out their own voters must materialize. Failure to act in the next election cycles, 2014, 2016 and 2018 will prolong the pain for the middle class and those at the edge of society. Therefore, we need to remove the obstacles – TEA party and Republicans standing in the way. There must be a concerted effort by students, women, blacks, Hispanics/Latinos and others of color to remove these obstructionist from office. The 2014 Mid-term is a-coming! As is 2016, and 2018! V.O.T.E.(Vote Out The Encumberance)
