Who’s Behind $1 Million in Corporate Donations to Romney-Aligned Super PAC?
Restore Our Future, the super PAC supporting Mitt Romney, accepted three donations totaling $1 million from three different corporate entities at the same Dayton, Ohio post office box, according to campaign finance reports filed Wednesday. The checks--two for $333,333 and one for $333,334--were all dated May 22.
The checks came from "Waterbury Properties, LLC", "Fairbanks Properties LLC" and "CRC Information Systems, Inc." all with a return address of P.O. Box 2608, Dayton, Ohio 45401. CRC Information Systems was bought by The Reynolds and Reynolds Company in 2008--which has listed the same P.O. Box as a return address on old filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Reynolds and Reynolds provides "software, business forms and supplies, and professional services that support all areas of automotive retailing for car dealers and automakers" according to their web site.
Thomas Schwartz, a spokesman for Reynolds and Reynolds, said he didn't know about the political donations, and had never heard of Waterbury Properties or Fairbanks Properties. "Those names have never come up," he said. CRC Information Systems makes "software for the printing industry," according to Schwartz.
