An organization called W Spann LLC was founded in late April, and closed up in mid-July. It seems to have had no offices, and done nothing– except give $1 million to Mitt Romney’s Super PAC. David Weigel comments:
It’s this kind of stuff that complicates the “money is speech” argument. If you’re being incredibly charitable about it, maybe you can compare this to John Jay writing an essay under a pen name to influence the debate over whether or not New York should approve the Constitution.
Boy, that felt stupid even as I wrote it. It’s nothing like that — it’s laundering money and hoping no one asks questions about it.
