Here's just the latest sign that our campaign finance laws are healthy in every way the Founding Fathers could have imagined: A secret company that no one knows anything about has given Mitt Romney's SuperPAC $1 million and quickly dissolved into nothingness. The folks behind this fly-by-night operation are probably relaxing on a beach in Mexico by now! Oh man.
The company that donated the $1 million to Restore Our Future, the SuperPAC Mitt Romney's buddies have set up for his campaign, was W Spann LLC, formed in March. "The corporate records provide no information about the owner of the firm, its address or its type of business," NBC News reports:
There's no telling where that money came from. It could have come from a foreign power, drug cartels, AT&T, or Romney's own wife. It could have been legit, or laundered money. America needs to get serious about campaign finance disclosure. No more donations from anyone, period, without full disclosure. This is ridiculous. (h/t Gawker)
