House Dems Embrace Their Super PAC

February 7, 2012
Democrats have railed against the new outside groups, which played a major role in the Republican takeover of Congress in 2010. Democrats, including President Obama, have decried the lack of disclosure requirements and the potential for corporations to spend money on elections. Such a public embrace by Democratic leaders is an indication that the party has recognized the Republican advantage in raising outside money, and the reality that neither legislation nor court action will stop super PACs from playing a major role again this year. Obama's campaign signaled late Monday they would help a supportive super PAC, Priorities USA Action, raise and spend money after public filings made clear Republican counterparts had vastly outpaced the group's fundraising. "The stakes are too important to play by two different sets of rules. If we fail to act, we concede this election to a small group of powerful people intent on removing the President at any cost," Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in an email to supporters late Monday.
