A friend sent this photo today. It was taken at the intersection of Biscayne Blvd and 110 Street in Miami Beach, Florida.
The ad was placed by the American Principles Super Pac. Here is another ad the organization is running in south Florida:
Here’s the Sunlight Foundation on the American Principles Super Pac:
It’s one of a number of pop up super PACs that are emerging just before the November election, barraging voters with advertisements before having to reveal any information about financial backers. American Principles will release its first list of donors by Oct. 20. The treasurer for another such super PAC aimed at Florida voters, Treasure Coast Jobs Coalition, declined to comment for this article.
American Principles Super PAC’s spokesman, Eytan Laor, declined to name the group’s donors, but conceded that most are pro-Israel Republicans. He characterized them as “concerned individuals” and “small business corporations.” Spending decisions are made by a small group of people, including Laor, and no one person is in charge, he said.
The group believes in “American exceptionalism,” a foreign policy that distinguishes enemies from allies, conservative monetary and fiscal policies, and limited government intervention in the private sector, according to a press release.
Laor is also raising money for pro-Israel Republicans in Congress though a traditional PAC—which must abide by contribution limits unlike super PACs. It is also called American Principles PAC and has raised raised close to $200,000 this election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Despite the identical names and the fact that both committees share donors and Laor’s labor, he insisted there is a clear distinction between the PAC and super PAC. The super PAC is about opposing Obama and electing select Republicans in 2012 and is not about Israel, Laor maintained. They have “no connection,” he said.
