I Make a Mistake
Believe it or not, I made a mistake. In a recent post, I reported that Mr. Al Franken had claimed that his new PAC had raised and dispensed monies to various candidates. After checking with several watchdog groups who monitor fundraising activities, I found that Midwest Values PAC, G-d Only knows what that is all about, had neither raised nor dispensed ANY money whatsoever.
After making a few calls, I discovered that the watchdogs I researched monitor at the federal level, whose laws and rules about filing deadlines are different from those who are active at the local level.
In other words according to the local watchdogs, MVP had indeed raised and dispensed contributions, while at the federal level MVP was not obligated to file their activities, which is why zero was reported.
I apologize for the misreporting and am happy to make the corrections.
