Kay Ivey ‘Not Aware’ of Romney PAC Despite Receiving Thousands

MONTGOMERY — Despite chairing Mitt Romney’s Presidential campaign in Alabama, Lt. Governor Kay Ivey told the Montgomery Advertiser this week she had ‘no prior knowledge’ of the PAC Romney has been using to shuffle money to his national political operations and Republican candidates across the country since 2006.

“Kay Ivey received thousands of dollars from this PAC when she was running for Lt. Governor,” said Bradley Davidson, Executive Director of the Alabama Democrats. “Including ten thousand dollars last November. If she can’t remember a PAC giving her that much money, it’s no surprise the PACT program tanked under her watch.”

Alabama Democrats filed a joint complaint to the Federal Election Commission with the New Hampshire Democratic Party, asking the FEC and state finance regulatory bodies to investigate Romney’s questionable use of state PACs to solicit donations in excess of federal limits to fund his national political operations.

Will Sellers, her former campaign manager and chairman of her Lt. Governor transitional committee, previously served as treasurer of Romney’s Free and Strong America – Alabama PAC. Ivey also recently began soliciting donations for a $2500-a-head August fundraiser with Romney in Huntsville.

“She’s still fundraising for him. Where are these donations going?” Davidson added. “We find it hard to believe the Lt. Governor wasn’t aware Romney had a presence here, and we hope the Secretary of State will investigate Ivey and Romney’s fundraising activities. If she’s so certain Governor Romney did nothing wrong, Kay Ivey should have no problem joining us to ask him to disclose his finances to ensure he’s not engaging in the same kind of shady fundraising her Party campaigned against last year.”

    Politicians are all the same just a few differences along their party line. None of them can tell the truth about anything it's hard to believe that they were at one time living among us sharing the same experiences we do.
