Controversy All Around

Since groups can make donations, one of the largest criticisms of Super PACs is that it becomes difficult to track exactly whom is spending what to support a candidate. One of the largest critics of super PACs is former Republican presidential nominee John McCain, who, according to the Washington Examiner, called the Supreme Court’s ruling to allow Super PACs to persist as “one of the worst decisions ever seen."
