The Super PAC to End all Super PACs?
In a sign that super PACs are the new normal, two highly unlikely groups established the vehicles known for unlimited corporate contributions last week: an Occupy Wall Street super PAC and another created to run ads opposing — super PACs.
“Fight fire with fire!” pleads Citizens Against Super PACs, which formed Tuesday. “We use funds to educate the public about super PACs, and we run ads to help candidates and elected officials who support a constitutional amendment to either limit super PACs or get rid of them all together,” it says.
On Wednesday, as Occupy Wall Street protesters in Washington and other cities continued their months-long demonstrations against what they call corporate greed and the purchase of political influence, paperwork arrived at the Federal Election Commission establishing We Are the 99% Movement.
