A “union-backed slush fund,” as Kyle Drennen called them in March. I’d never heard of them before, but when their ad bashing Republican Nevada Senate nominee Sharron Angle showed up in rotation on my blog, I decided to find out.
Among other things, Patriot Majority PAC claims to “support our troops” and “patriotic policies,” but who do they really support? Democrats.
Patriot Majority PAC “is in fact the creation of two men — Craig Varoga and George Rakis, Democratic Party strategists who have set up a number of so-called 527 groups,” Joseph Abrams of Fox News reported:
Calls and e-mails to the Maryland-based consultant firm Independent Strategies, run by Varoga and Rakis, were not returned.
Outside of that firm, the center of their activity appears to be a single office in Southeast D.C. — 300 M Street, Suite 1102 — which plays host to a sprawling political shell game they have established.
Public records show at least seven political shops listed in Suite 1102, most of which are essentially clones of one another, but all of which have offered money — from measly thousands to game-changing millions — in state-level elections across the country:
- The American Public Policy Committee
- Patriot Majority
- Citizens for Progress
- Oklahoma Freedom Fund
- Mid Atlantic Leadership Fund
- Public Security Now
- Pioneer Majority
- Bluegrass Freedom Fund
Read the rest of that important report and do not be deceived by these bogus Democrat scam operations that are trying to cash in on words like “Patriot” and “Freedom” and “Security.”
