It is still a mystery to many what exactly super PACs are and how they operate. As the courts changed the law in 2010 on anonymous donations to candidates, super PACs became a huge force for each candidate.  As money and politics come hand in hand it is important to know the details behind this new method of donating money.  This short video will give you a brief and complete understanding of how super PACs work and their true intentions.

It all atarted in Ohio when a super pac wanted to defeat a democrat state supreme court justice running for reelection in the 1990's. Democrat Justice Alice Resnick had voted on issues that were not in tune with the wishes of chambers of commerce and large corporations. They raised in excess of $2,100,000 to defeat Justice Resnick. This campaign should have been in the $50,000 catagory. Thankfully, she won anyway.

First they rob America of it's wealth then they aquire the ability to spend it in secret. Isn't it amazing how they finally drafted a policy that works?
