DeLauro’s leadership PAC gets some unflattering attention

Rep. Rosa DeLauro’s leadership PAC is among those highlighted in a new report, “Political Inaction Committees,” by the Center for Public Integrity, a nonpartisan investigative group in Washington.

The center notes that DeLauro’s PAC, Committee for a Democratic Future, spends most of its money on catering expenses for invitation-only “policy dinners” that she and her husband host at their Capitol Hill home, rather than on donations to other congressional candidates.

The center raises questions about whether those expenses are valid, given that such PACs are supposed to help elect federal candidates. Click here to read the Mirror’s story on DeLauro’s committee and other Connecticut lawmakers’ leadership PACs.
