Mitt Romney may have failed when he tried to explain how separate he his from the Super PAC run by former staffers that’s dumping ads all over the country.
“I haven’t spoken to any of the people involved in my super PAC in months,” Romney said.
He repeated his suggestion that super PACs are bad for democracy and called for their replacement with unlimited donations to candidates (with full disclosure.) The moment came during yet another exchange with Newt Gingrich over Super PAC ads, which have become a central part of the bitter campaign between the two men.
Gingrich called on Romney to condemn what he said were inaccuracies in Romney’s super PAC ad blitz aimed at him, while Romney called the anti-Bain Capital movie put out by Gingrich’s super PAC “the biggest hoax since Bigfoot.”
