Dick Morris' Super PAC Spends $1.7 M on Conservative Website

FOX News might be shying away from Dick Morris after he predicted a Romney presidency, but NewsMax, a conservative website for which he is a columnist, should be very happy with him.

Super PAC for America, for which Morris is the "chief strategist," raised a little over $3 million from small donors in a little over a month, but only spent $1.5 million of that money on independent expenditures opposing Barack Obama.

Recent FEC filings covering Oct. 1 through Nov. 26 show that Super PAC for America disbursed $1.7 million to NewsMax for "fundraising."

The super PAC had been fairly inactive for most of the year, raising less than $2,000 in the second and third quarters and making no independent expenditures during that time.

Thanks in part, no doubt, to Morris' platform on FOX News and NewsMax Super PAC for America started pulling in small contributions in droves, raising $2.1 million in contributions of $200 and under -- mostly in late October and the first few days of November. The group received 3,446 contributions larger than $200, but none exceeded five digits.
