Michael Isikoff finds an even more extreme case today: A Delaware corporation that formed itself gave $1 million to a pro-Mitt Romney super PAC and then dissolved. The PAC says it’s fulfilled its disclosure requirements — with the FEC, not the much toothier IRS. And that seems to be that.
This is more or less how money moves around Russian politics. For all we know, the Delaware corporation is owned by another corporation, registered in the Cayman Islands, with its directors another set of anonymous lawyers. Its money could come from, say, the government of Pakistan, which has recently shown an interest in illegal contributions to American pols.
