Today may be Friday the 13th, but Wednesday night was unlucky for Democratic strategist and political commentator Hilary Rosen, thanks to an unfortunate observation about Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann. We hate the misconception that persists, that stay-at-home moms are sitting around the house, eating bon-bons… which is why this week’s Pursuit of Happiness Hour recipe is such an ironic choice.
For an example of the fluidity of campaign finance rules, as well as the tangled web of connections between candidates and super PACs, look no further than the digital consulting firm Targeted Victory.
So far, the firm’s hauled in $4.1 million working for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign and American Crossroads, the super PAC launched by GOP strategist Karl Rove. Just down the hall, its neighbors in Arlington, Va., include an office housing four other companies working for Romney, American Crossroads or the pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future.
