A recap of Public Campaign and Public Campaign Action Fund's (PCAF) work from October 31 through November 4, 2011.

  • He, of all people, would know. Former corrupt lobbyist extraordinaire and convicted felon Jack Abramoff will appear on 60 Minutes on Sunday, Excerpts from his interview speak volumes on pay-to-play Washington, D.C.
  • Apparently sexual harassment allegations and possible violations of campaign finance law is good for the ol' campaign coffers. Despite offering a how-to guide on how NOT to handle a scandal, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain's fundraising see's a boost amid troubles.
  • A penny, er, maxed-out campaign contribution, for your thoughts? Rep. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) becomes the latest member of Congress to invite campaign donors to testify at hearings.
  • Now this is scary. Public Campaign Action Fund outfits darling of the 1%, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, with an appropriate Halloween costume.
  • Mailing it in. PCAF is targeting special interest favorite, Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce, with a series of mailings in his recall election. The mail pieces focus on Pearce's corruption and special interest ties.
