(Washington Examiner) A PAC called 21st Century Democrats has raised $5.3 million since 2009, but not a penny of it has gone to candidates’ campaigns or independent expenditures on their behalf, according to Federal Election Commission records.

That makes 21st Century Democrats one of the largest, yet least effective, independent political action committees in the country.

“I have no sense of giving them the approval to use my name, and I suspect none of the other people who they purport to be their advisory board will, either.”

The fly-by-night group has tried to represent itself as something more official by presenting a list of respected Democrats as its “advisory board,” complete with fabricated quotes, when they hadn’t even heard of the organization, the Washington Examiner found.
