Romney-Backing PAC Cautions Donors With Contracts
Reacting to scrutiny of the more than $1 million it has accepted from federal contractors, a super PAC supporting Mitt Romney is now advising donors who do government work to seek legal advice before giving.
In language added to its website this week, the Restore Our Future political action committee said: “Federal government contractors should consult counsel prior to making a contribution.”
The new text appeared within days of an Inquirer report that the PAC had solicited donations from at least eight companies with federal contracts, despite a decades-old ban prohibiting such contractors from making political donations.
The added language does not go as far as the warnings already on websites for PACs such as the Obama-backing Priorities USA Action and the Karl Rove-managed American Crossroads. Both require donors to certify they are not government contractors before their donations are processed.
