A newly formed political action committee aimed at defeating President Barack Obama took in $9,780.00 in just a few months. And they didn’t even have to spell his name correctly to do it.
Paperwork to form the new committee, the “Campaign to Defeat Barrack Obama,” was filed with the Federal Election Commission on April 5. Ten days later, the PAC’s name was changed to “Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama.” The group filed its first financial report this week.
“The original registration form had the incorrect spelling, but the committee has since filed an amended registration form to correct the issue,” FEC spokesman Christian Hilland told TPM.
The treasurer who filed the paperwork did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
