Super PAC's

ABC News reported on the newest political animal.  It's a donkey-elephant "money machine" hybrid, known as a Super PAC:

Unlike traditional PACs, or political action committees, they cannot give money directly to candidates or coordinate their efforts with individual campaigns. 

(They were) created in the wake of two Supreme Court decisions earlier this year that lifted some limits on campaign spending and allowed corporations and interest groups to funnel money directly into political campaigns.
One might expect the foulest of political animals to gravitate toward Super PAC's.  They're right.
