Pro-Romney 'super PAC' meets alongside donor event

Source: LA Times

NEW YORK Among the series of events held Tuesday at the Waldorf Astoria to thank the wealthy donors backing Mitt Romney was a session with the leaders of Restore Our Future, a "super PAC" prohibited from coordinating with his campaign.

The afternoon meeting was held behind an unmarked door in one of the hotel's dining rooms, just one floor above the Grand Ballroom, where 1,000 donors and fundraisers for the Republican's presidential campaign had gathered earlier in the day to listen to officials discuss the strategy for the final three weeks of the presidential race.

The meshing of the two events spotlighted the symbiotic relationship between Romney's campaign and the super PAC, which has already poured more than $90 million into providing essential air cover for the GOP candidate.

The meeting for Restore Our Future donors was hosted by two former Romney aides who founded the group, political strategist Carl Forti and election law attorney Charlie Spies. They declined to comment on whether they had scheduled the event in coordination with the campaign.

If Romney is not going to follow campaign finance rules barring coordination between campaigns and SuperPACs what makes you think he will follow debate rules?

Also, stories like this underscore why this will still be a very tough election even though President Obama owned Romney in the second debate.
