Democrats take page from GOP playbook
Turn to super PACs to level fund-raising
Democrats in Congress have joined an inside-the-beltway gold rush in support of so-called “super PACs,’’ which can accept political contributions of unlimited size, including from outside groups that keep the sources of their money secret. Republican-leaning groups pioneered the practice last year. Now Democrats are trying to catch up. Super PACs are forming at a rate of two per week, up from two per month earlier this year.
