Axios reported that pop-up super PACs are new organizations with vague and positive names that are new enough that the disclosure requirements do not require political donors to be named before voting for primaries ends.
“Republican operatives in Washington can try to tip the scales of key intra-party fights without leaving any fingerprints,” according to Axios.
These under-handed expenditures enable RINOs to “drop millions into a hard-fought race before voters have any idea where the money is coming from.” These pop-up super PACs have been used against several MAGA candidates.
Mitch McConnell has secretly spearheaded many attacks on MAGA candidates. White Mountain PAC, created late last month, “has already spent nearly $5 million” supporting RINO state senator Chuck Morse in opposition to MAGA Candidate Don Bolduc, reported Axios. It didn’t work; Bolduc won.
McConnell is connected to another organization that attacked MAGA Mizzou candidate Eric Greitens, but “it timed that spending to forestall donor disclosure until after the primary,” thus hiding the influence of the swamp, and its turtle, from the people of Missouri.
In New Hampshire, a group calling itself American Liberty Action PAC spent about $730,000 opposing the MAGA candidate Bob Burns, per Axios. Because of the timing of the expenditures, it won’t be known who was behind this avalanche of spending until the election is finished. The same anonymous group spent a fortune attacking MAGA candidates Anthony Sabatini of Florida and Carl Paladino of New York; Sabatini and Paladino both lost their primaries.
Republican Strategist Doug Heye said of the deceptive tactics, “whatever you can do to do that [get your candidate elected], within the legal bounds, is what you’ll do.”
