Liberal PAC opens Palm Beach County office to ‘take down Allen West’by George Bennett | April 27th, 2012
A liberal PAC is opening a “Take Down Allen West Headquarters” in Palm Beach Gardens as part of its efforts to oust 10 House Republicans around the U.S.
San Francisco-based Credo SuperPAC, which has four paid staffers working on anti-West efforts, is one of at least three organizations that regularly sends video trackers to West events to capture comments like West’s recent declaration that between 78 and 81 House Democrats are members of the Communist Party.
The PAC has raised about $1.2 million. Its largest contributor is Oregon author and Barack Obama campaign money-raiser Win McCormack, who gave $125,000.
Local Credo organizer Justin Snyder said the PAC doesn’t focus on TV ads but grass-roots activities. In addition to the PAC’s four local paid staffers, Snyder said Credo has enlisted about 300 volunteers.
