The Sacramento Bee: Loretta Sanchez listed as guest at ‘informational luncheon’ for her Super PAC
But “nothing stops somebody else from standing up after the candidate leaves and asking for a corporation to donate $1 million” to the PAC, said Larry Noble, general counsel for the Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan election reform group.
“The independence of the Super PAC is a fiction. But it’s a fiction sanctioned by the FEC (Federal Election Commission),” Noble said. To most people the candidate is bestowing “approval on the Super PAC, and the implication is when you give to the super PAC you are directly helping the candidate.”
