I wrote an article titled “Birther PAC” in August 2012, abut the Conservative Majority Fund, a political action committee (treasurer Scott B. MacKenzie) that in just one month spent half a million dollars on fundraising and robocalls promoting birtherism. They produced the infamous video called “Shady Past.” I wrote then:
I’m no election law wonk, but it looks like their first donor report won’t be due until October 15, so the election will be upon us before we know where the money is coming from.
In that subsequent October report, the PAC had raised over $1.4 million and by years end the total had topped $2.8 million. The main expense: robocalls.
