The un-super PACs

by - November 27, 2012

Satterlee’s saga is hardly unique: More than 60 percent of the 1,091 super PACs ever created have never raised a dime.

In fact, more than 100 super PACs have closed shop in 2012, 59 this month alone, the Sunlight Foundation reports.

They’re the “un-super PACs,” often born from political idealism and good intentions but doomed to virtual anonymity or irrelevancy for one reason or another. Even kitschy or eye-catching names — such as Dogs Against Romney, Joe Six PAC, Eradicate National Debt and the Slam Dunks, Fireworks and Eagles Super PAC — haven’t helped much.
