New 'Super Pacs' bringing millions into campaigns

Washington Post: "FEC records show that super PACs have spent more than $8 million on television advertising and other expenditures, almost all of it within the past month. Groups favoring GOP candidates have outspent Democratic supporters by more than 3 to 1, mirroring an overall surge in spending by the Republican Party and its allies in recent weeks, records show.

The super PACs have 'opened the door to the clearest, easiest way to spend unlimited funds on an election,' said Trevor Potter, a former FEC chairman who served as general counsel to GOP presidential candidate John McCain in 2008. 'This is pretty much the holy grail that people have been looking for.'"
