Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, the most prolific campaign contributor this election, has written another million dollar check--this time, to a little-known super PAC called "Freedom PAC" that first popped-up last month. The contribution was disclosed in the group's quarterly filing, submitted to the Federal Election Commission on Monday.
According to it's website, the PAC--which lists a New York address--is devoted to "supporting strong conservative candidates in Florida," in particular Rep. Connie Mack, who's running for senate.
Besides Adelson's contribution, the PAC took in $91,000, including $5,000 from Contran CEO Harold Simmons, who's also donated millions of dollars to right-leaning super PACs. The political group has yet to air any attack ads, but has spent $5,000 producing a spot featuring former Florida governor Jeb Bush endorising Mack, according to filings.
Freedom PAC has also spent $5,000 on legal services from Bracewell & Giuliani, the law firm that employs former New York mayor and one-time presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani.
