A new wave of money in politics isn’t the only thing the advent of the super PAC era has brought about.
A perusal this morning of the Federal Election Commission’s running list of the independent expenditure-only committees led to the discovery of some unusual super PAC names.
Some, such as Sam Vs. The Machine (a super PAC supporting former Pennsylvania Senate GOP hopeful Sam Rohrer) appear geared toward playing a role in specific races.
Others, such as MIT student Danny Ben-David’s Why Not ZoidPAC?, came about this year after Stephen Colbert called on viewers to start their own super PACs, part of the comedian’s long-running satire of the campaign-finance system.
A few of our other favorite super PAC names (whether actual groups or satire): I Am a Person, The Internet, Joe Six Pac, Peeps Pac, Talkin’ Smack PAC and Americans for the Win Tomorrow.
There’s even a Committee for the Re-Election of the President.
