Sen. Susan Collins, the Maine Republican, told 60 Minutes that a grassroots funding drive for her eventual Democratic opponent was “classic quid pro quo” and bribery. “I think that if our politics has come to the point where people are trying to buy votes and buy positions, then we are in a very sad place.”
That same Susan Collins just uploaded a bunch of stock videos for those “unaffiliated” Super PACs to use for ads that are totally not coordinated with her campaign but are totally in support of her campaign. So, yes, the woman who freaked out over Ady Barkan’s CrowdPAC trying to buy the election and the flood of out of state money is … inviting PACs to flood the state with out of state money to buy the election.
So American Bridge PAC (our side) accepted the invitation. The result is fabulous.
