But he is the devil.
(The Hill) — Liberal ex-Sen. Russ Feingold is ripping President Obama’s decision to embrace super-PACs.
Feingold, who co-authored landmark campaign finance legislation with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to regulate campaigns, said Obama is “dancing with the devil” by deciding to fully support Priorities USA, a Democratic super PAC.
He also said it would turn Democrats into “corporate-lite.”
“This is dancing with the devil. I know a lot of Democrats in D.C. don’t agree, and I understand the desire to do everything possible to win,” Feingold said in a statement. “But this decision will push Democrats to become corporate-lite, and will send us head-on into a battle we know we will lose, because Republicans like Mitt Romney and his friends have and will spend more money.”
