Romney-tied PAC has taste for secrecy
Millions in gifts tied to obscure or shell firms
Among all the super PACs that have brought a deluge of big-money donations into the presidential nomination race, only the one allied with Mitt Romney has established a pattern of accepting big contributions from corporate entities that tend to obscure the actual source of the money or appear to have been created specifically as vehicles to mask the wealthy donors. Twice, the Restore Our Future super PAC has amended its reports to the Federal Election Commission after media reports indicated that contributions of $1 million and $250,000, respectively, were made through dummy limited liability companies to Restore Our Future. In each case, individuals with past associations to Bain Capital, the private equity firm founded by Romney, acknowledged they were the true source.
