Super PAC Funds Zombies in California

A Republican-oriented super PAC reported today it has given some of its funds leftover from the 2012 elections to Zombies for Responsible Government.

The Americans for Accountability in Leadership, a federal super PAC, reported today it gave $5,300 on Oct. 31 to Zombies for Responsible Government. The group is opposing Democrat Norman Fletcher for Mayor in San Diego’s Nov. 19 election. The position became vacant when former Mayor Bob Filner, a Democrat who was previously a U.S. representative, resigned in a sexual-harassment scandal.

The last large contributions received by the super PAC were in 2012 and included $110,000 from Charles Munger (physicist, Calif.) who is also vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Corp.; $25,000 from Charles Schwab (executive, Charles Schwab, Calif.); $20,000 from Food 4 Less (Calif.); $15,000 from Foothill Warehouse Co. (Calif.). The PAC has $19,152 in cash on hand as of Oct. 31.

Zombies for Responsible Government ran an ad at the end of October featuring zombie characters constantly changing directions and claiming Fletcher changes positions.
