Good Day World
Seems like everyone is jumping on the PAC bandwagon and forming new ones these days.
Perhaps the most unique PAC formed yet is the brainchild of a convicted cyberstalker and extortionist. You gotta ask yourself, who would donate to a PAC being formed from a prison?
The only thing I can think of is this PAC is for people with extreme ideologies and the ability to turn a blind eye to criminals as long as they follow the conservative brand.
This article from the Center of Public Integrity explains what’s happening:
“For the first time, a super PAC is being masterminded from behind bars.
Adam Savader this week formed Second Chance PAC — it may raise and spend unlimited amounts of money to influence elections — even though Savader himself can’t vote. That’s because Savader is serving a 30-month sentence in federal prison for cyberstalking and extortion after pleading guilty in November 2013 to the crimes.
A budding political activist who attended The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., Savader had previously volunteered for the 2012 presidential campaigns of Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.
Around the same time, Savader was hacking into women’s email accounts, stealing nude photos of them and threatening to publish the pictures unless they sent more, according to court filings.
Several campaign finance lawyers, normally a tough bunch to surprise, said this appears to be the first super PAC set up by a jailbird.” (source)
