Million Dollar Donors

Daily Beast reports:

Mitt Romney held a high-dollar fundraiser Thursday night at the home of John Paulson, the controversial hedge-fund billionaire who made a fortune shorting the housing market and subprime mortgages in 2007.

The article goes on to mention that Paulson, one of the country’s wealthiest people, is also a donor to Romney’s super PAC. He’s not just any donor, though—he’s one of the biggest. In fact, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, Paulson has donated $1 million so far to the Romney-aligned Restore Our Future:

It’s hard to say super PAC fundraising won’t influence a candidate when the same donors are hosting high-dollar fundraisers for the candidate that super PAC supports.
