Sen. Elizabeth Warren reversed her position on rejecting super PAC support as she seeks a comeback in the Democratic presidential primary. Warren, who has previously said that she would disavow the support of a super PAC that sought to aid her bid for the presidency, told reporters that she had changed her mind after failing to get her rivals to join her in repudiating the outside spending groups.
The reversal is a dramatic change of heart for the Massachusetts progressive. Warren boasted during the Democratic debate earlier this month that only she and Sen. Amy Klobuchar lacked super PAC backers. “So look, the first day I got in this race over a year ago, I said I hope every presidential candidate who comes in will agree – no super PACs for any of us. I renewed that call dozens of times,” Warren said. “And I couldn’t get a single Democrat to go along with it.”
It turns out that former Ronald Reagan administration politico and past President of the of the anti-gay hate group the Family Research Center Gary Bauer is behind the GOP political SuperPac known as the Campaign for American Values which put together a recent anti-gay 2012 election ad for Mitt Romney and Paul (Lyin) Ryan in which a concerned couple discuss how the president is “forcing” gay marriage upon America.
The Campaign for American Values SuperPac just happens to have the same mailing address (and suite number) as Bauers current anti-gay group the Campaign for Working Families (CWF), a political action committee dedicated to electing “pro-family, pro-life and pro-free enterprise”.
But the interesting thing about CVA is that over 2/3 rds of its donations $500,000.00 comes from a single company in Irving, TX called Corporate Land Management Inc. that DOESN’T EVEN EXIST.
