Mysterious Company Donates $1 Million to Mitt Romney, Then Disappears!

Yep, it’s true, according to the folks at Yahoo News, that’s exactly what happened.

Three firms gave $1 million apiece to Restore Our Future, a conservative “super PAC” planning to spend millions to help Romney’s White House bid.

One of those companies was W. Spann LLC, a mysterious New York-based company that apparently closed up shop last month shortly after its contribution to the pro-Romney PAC. As NBC News’s Michael Isikoff reports, the company was formed in March by Boston estate tax lawyer Cameron Casey and listed a midtown Manhattan address where the landlord says there’s no record of the firm being a tenant.

The company gave $1 million to Restore Our Future on April 28, and according to records obtained by Isikoff, dissolved on July 12th, just two weeks before the pro-Romney PAC disclosed its donors to the Federal Election Commission.

According to The Ticket:

A conservative “super PAC” created to boost Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential bid raised more than $12.2 million in the first six months of the year, mostly though big contributions from wealthy GOP donors.

Restore Our Future, a political committee founded by Romney allies earlier this year, reported receiving four contributions of $1 million apiece, according to a finance report filed with the Federal Election Commission on Sunday.

9/11 Responders May Get Aid… Finally

It is a matter of national shame that 9/11 responders have yet to have anyone come to their aid. Especially in lieu of the bill that would have aided them, getting shot down in the House last week by Republicans who were allegedly unhappy that the bill would have been unfunded.

Funny
