    And in other news . . . (none / 0) (#1)

    . . . someone's creating dissolving shell outfits apparently for the sole purpose of keeping Romney's campaign going.  From The Ticket:

    As The Ticket reported earlier this week, three firms gave $1 million apiece to Restore Our Future, a conservative "super PAC" planning to spend millions to help Romney's White House bid.

    One of those companies was W. Spann LLC, a mysterious New York-based company that apparently closed up shop last month shortly after its contribution to the pro-Romney PAC. As NBC News's Michael Isikoff reports, the company was formed in March by Boston estate tax lawyer Cameron Casey and listed a midtown Manhattan address where the landlord says there's no record of the firm being a tenant.

    The company gave $1 million to Restore Our Future on April 28, and according to records obtained by Isikoff, dissolved on July 12th, just two weeks before the pro-Romney PAC disclosed its donors to the Federal Election Commission. There's no indication in the records of what the company did or who its owners or principals were.

    But W. Spann isn't the only mystery about big contributions to Restore Our Future.  As The Ticket previously reported, two other $1 million donations came from two equally mysterious companies:  Eli Publishing and F8 LLC. The two entities list the same Provo, Utah, address, according to FEC records, but there's no indication of what the companies do.

    Restore Our Future did not respond to request for comment from The Ticket, but Charles Spies, a former Romney aide who is one of the PAC's founders, told Isikoff the committee has no information on W. Spann LLC or any of its corporate donors -- insisting they aren't required to ask for information beyond basic FEC disclosure requirements.

    Plausible deniability . . . gotta love that.

    But money can only buy you so much.
