Pro-Romney super PAC says it listed wrong firm in mysterious $400,000 gift, will correct error
WASHINGTON (AP) ' The "super" political action committee supporting likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney says it provided the wrong address for a mysterious donor who gave $400,000. But Restore Our Future still won't say who is behind the money.
Super PACs can accept unlimited donations and do not have to identify their donors. Most donors do identify themselves but in some cases hide their names behind limited liability partnerships.
The $400,000 gift was attributed to a donor in south Florida. But Carl Forti, the head of the super PAC, said Monday that the paperwork is being corrected. He blamed the mistake on a clerical error.
Last year, Restore Our Future did not identify the source of a $1 million gift until a former executive with Romney's old firm, Bain Capital, stepped forward.
