John Edwards seeks the help of PAC's
So much for opposing the influence of special interest organizations that want to impact the election. A political action committee is being formed in Iowa that supports John Edwards' candidacy, and the Edwards campaign is working with it. Obama thinks that contradicts what Edwards has been saying all campaign season.
That very point is now part of Obama's
Then, Mr. Obama opened a new story line: He told voters they should beaware a group is spending money on Mr. Edwards behalf in the final daysof the Iowa campaign.
???¬?John yesterday said that he didn???¬??t believe in 527s ???¬??? those are theindependent groups that raise money without disclosure. Nobody knowswho???¬??s giving the money or what???¬??s going on. He said, ???¬??I don???¬??t believe inthem because this is a major loophole in campaign finance reform laws,you have these outside groups helping out candidates and it is a way toget around campaign finance laws.???¬?????¬??
It's a very tough decision. If someone supports your candidacy, it's only human nature to want to work with that group. Then again, Edwards wanted to run a difference type of campaign -- one without 527 groups.
