Response to AgingAmerican (Reply #74)

83. Wrong. It's a SuperPAC. It has a 527 group called the Progressive Kick listed as one of its donors.

The 527 group, Progressive Kick is NOT a nurse nor a member of the nurses' union. And only SuperPACs are allowed to accept donations from, among other types of donors, outside organizations. PACs cannot.

Also...

Currently, super PACs only have to file reports with the FEC every six months in off years. This increases to quarterly or monthly during the election year. Following these types of expenditures, which are generally reported to the FEC within 48 hours, is one of the ways Sunlight tracks the flow of money out of super PACs and other outside groups.

The National Nurses United has been filing monthly, as Super PACs have to do. That makes it a SuperPAC.
