NonPartisan NonProfit Group: Jeb Bush is Violating Campaign Finance Laws

There are hardly any restrictions to big money flows in political campaigns left, but one of the few remaining is this: the unlimited cash sources called “Super PACs” cannot coordinate with presidential campaigns. They must operate independently.

The non-profit Center for Public Integrity has released a report uncovering a direct connection between the Presidential campaign of Jeb Bush and the Super PAC that fictively works independently on his behalf, called Right to Rise. Public Integrity documents that the Super PAC Right to Rise is sending payments to a mysterious company whose sole known address is a post office box. Who owns that box? None other than Heather Larrison, the national finance director for Bush’s official presidential campaign.

In a nation run by laws, there would be investigations and arrests. In a nation run by money, there would be little notice. Watch and see what kind of nation we live in.

    That’s just the tip of the [melting] iceberg with Jeb. There’s a long list of other awful things he wants to do if elected. So DON’T VOTE for the scum.

  2. Jim Cook says:

    Even Jeb Bush can’t keep his campaign and the “independent” Super PAC separate — “We just started to advertise—actually the Right to Rise PAC started to advertise, not our campaign.”

    Hi Jim,

    I noticed there’s been no news lately about all those Pete Peterson front groups. Do they seem to be sitting out this election cycle?

    I just saw a news story saying presidential candidates had addressed a “No Labels” group in New Hampshire. Trump and the others were there, but I was surprised Democrats were, too. The article said Bernie Sanders addressed the group by video recording.

      Hi. The answer, as far as I can tell, is that they appear to be *quiet*. I’m looking but not seeing. Thanks for your update on No Labels.

      I also just looked up Mr. Peterson on YouTube to see if he had been interviewed anytime recently. In the most recent ones, still a couple years ago, he is looking pretty frail. Wikipedia has a younger looking picture of him but it says he’s on his way to 90. I guess that could be part of it.
