Many super PACs filed their monthly fundraising reports yesterday. Politico notes this $1 million donation to the Mitt Romney-aligned super PAC, Restore Our Future:
The Renco Group, Inc., a company controlled by New York investor Ira Rennert, gave $1 million – the first donation by either Rennert or the company to a super PAC in 2012. Renco owns mines and mills in the U.S. and South America, including some that have been accused of massive pollution. According to Crain’s New York Business, the Justice Department in 2001 called a magnesium company Rennert owned the nation’s top polluter.
