So, anybody out there know who needs to form a PAC (Political Action Committee), what they are good for, etc? A good source for concise information from a reputable source?
The county GOP chair here told me when she got wind of some of our proposed projects (radio ads, cable access tv time, etc.) that we probably wanted to form one for CYA purposes, but she didn't really have any information about them. Any thoughts?

IANAL, but a group that collects or spends more than $1000 to influence the outcome of an election *is* a PAC and has to file with the FEC accordingly.

Good luck with it.
