Report: Romney PAC Got Mysterious $1M

WASHINGTON, Aug. 4 (UPI) — A company that incorporated in March gave $1 million to Mitt Romney’s U.S. presidential campaign before going out of business in July, records show.

MSNBC reported the company, W Spann LLC, left no records of officers or business activities during its brief life span. It donated money in April to Restore Our Future, a political action committee associated with Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is seeking the Republican nomination.

Cameron Casey, a lawyer with the Boston firm Ropes & Gray who specializes in estate-planning for the rich, signed the incorporation papers and those dissolving the firm, The Washington Post said. The company’s listed address — 590 Madison Ave., New York, N.Y. — is an office building where Bain Capital, Romney’s investment company, has an office.

While U.S. Supreme Court decisions on election spending have reduced required disclosure and loosed rules about donations, Fred Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21, said he believes the donation may have been illegal. He called for investigation by the Federal Election Commission and the Justice Department.
