Can Hillary Clinton Count On Religious Voters For Consistent Support?

Back in April, Elizabeth Dias of Time Magazine described the debut of a new political action committee called Faith Voters for Hillary. “Faith for Hillary is in the process of filing as a PAC, marking a strong push by Hillary Clinton’s religious supporters ahead of her potential presidential bid in 2016,” she wrote.

Meet The Political Donation Deadline For 2016 In November 2014, Or Else…

There is nothing that communicates the message that a political organization has no respect for its grassroots supporter than an email that contains the phrase “tonight’s critical FEC deadline”. Campaigns and PACs that think of voters as dupes love to try to convince people that there are deadlines for political donations, and that if money […]

Women Speak Out PAC Pays Chancellor Commander Of Group That Bans Women

An organization that calls itself the Women Speak Out PAC is throwing around a lot of money this year to try to manipulate several U.S. Senate elections… but in what sense does this group actually consist of women speaking out?

Follow the Mystery Money: Mayday PAC Props Up Conservative Stark360 Politicians

Do you remember the Mayday PAC, the Super PAC unregulated political corporation that promised to get big money out of politics? Do you remember when its leadership — Americans Elect alums libertarian Lawrence Lessig, Republican Kahlil Byrd and Republican Mark McKinnon — asked you to “embrace the irony”?

Well, the Mayday Super PAC is still […]

Big Money Corrodes Absolutely: Mayday Super PAC devolves into spinning self-protection

From its inception, the Mayday PAC run by Americans Elect alumni Lawrence Lessig, Kahlil Byrd and Mark McKinnon has run on a tank of political fuel emblazoned with the words JUST TRUST US.

So the Mayday PAC was led by a group of people who deceived followers in a previous political effort. So what? […]

Did the “Single Issue” Mayday PAC fund Canvassers on ObamaCare, Gun Rights and Global Warming?

A tip of the hat this morning to Miscellany Blue and DocDawg for breaking the news over the past week that Lawrence Lessig’s Mayday PAC had funnelled $103,000 to Stark 360, a political action committee (PAC) founded at the end of August 2014. This amount was a huge boon to Stark PAC, amounting to 94.5% […]

Mayday Super PAC sends $$ to GOP, but Hardly Any of its Donors are Republican

Blogger DocDawg has delved into the financial records of the Mayday Super PAC. This year, the Mayday PAC is identifying eight congressional campaigns to fund, ostensibly on the basis of campaign finance reform, and so far those campaigns benefitting from Mayday’s largesse are half Republican, half Democrat.

Actual support for campaign finance legislation is […]

Campaign Finance Reform at Reform.to: 96.2% Democratic, 1.4% Republican

Docdawg has written a detailed blog post explaining that of the 15 congressional candidates agreeing to the slate of campaign finance reforms listed at reform.to between July 29 and August 5, every single last one is a member of the Democratic Party. The time frame of July 29 to August 5 is important, because as […]

3 Ways the Mayday Super PAC is Better than Americans Elect

Lately, I’ve been using the platform of Irregular Times to share information with you about the Mayday Super PAC, which asks Americans to give it big money to spend in elections in order to get big money out of politics. A reader has written in response, characterizing such sharing of information as “demonization.” I should […]

In Further Retreat from Initial Promise, Mayday PAC to roll out more Email Fundraising

In a post two days ago, I noted the many venues and many ways in which the Mayday Super PAC and its leader Lawrence Lessig pledged to stop their fundraising juggernaut once they reached their predetermined threshold. The Mayday PAC made this pledge part of their fundraising appeal, part of its way of showing that […]
