But Tyler argued that Romney's super PAC would have pulled an ad if the candidate didn't like it. And Tyler knows that because: "I listen very carefully to what Newt says in the media, because I want Winning Our Future to reflect the spirit of what he would want to have done."
I asked Melanie Sloan of the left-leaning Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, D.C., whether she believes that super PAC staffers coordinate with presidential campaign staff. She believes that PAC-men adhere to the rules, but the technical definition of coordination is "really limited."
Does it make you think, I asked, Washington should get rid of campaign contribution limits altogether? Sloan responded, "It makes me feel that we already have."
