New PAC Targets Members Over Campaign Finance

Ultimately, the FOD wants Congress to take up the issue - making rules that would, among other things, end the revolving door between K street and the legislature, and encouraing the disclosure of donors to 501(c)(4) organizations. To that end, the FOD's involvement in these races is designed to catch the attention of candidates as much as those that of the voters. Although the group will not ask candidates to endorse a particular legislative platform, "people need to feel like they're going to lose their race unless they get right with voters on this," Donnelly said. FOD, which launched about two months ago, expects to spend up to $8 million dollars mostly in independent expenditures. The group, which is structured as a hybrid super PAC/ PAC, is capable of making hard-money contributions directly to campaigns, as well.
