Sure, the whole premise behind super PACs is that these political committees can raise as much money as they want -- literally, unlimited dollars -- so long as they don't work in partnership with the candidates -- but is that really what's going on?
Super PACs have been taking clear sides when it comes to presidential hopefuls. Even if you ignore the revolving door of staff who have ended up at super PACs promoting their former bosses, you have to agree that any “super power” working to support (or oppose) a candidate increases their power.
To help you get a hang of who is helping whom (and for how much*), we've created this handy matching game. Can you match the candidate to the super PAC supporting them?
