Modern Whig Party condemns the Nevada PAC shuffle

For immediate release.

Jon Ralston of the Las Vegas Sun recently reported on how a Nevada gubernatorial candidate manipulated 90 PACs to circumvent election laws governing campaign donations. The candidate in question setup one central PAC and solicited large donations far in excess of the limit for direct campaign donations (as much as $150,000) from various groups and people for that PAC for a total of over $750,000. The candidate then created about 90 other PACs. The central PAC made a series of maximum limit donations to each of these other PACs, which in turn forwarded the money as contributions to the candidate’s campaign fund.
