I really feel ridiculous putting her last name on all these posts – as if there were any other Hillary this could possibly refer to,  but if I don’t, this will not come up on search engines and Twitter.  H/t to Mom4Hill for finding this one!

Capital Eye Opener, March 7: Hillary’s Third Super PAC

REALLY READY FOR HILLARY: A HillaryClinton.jpgthird super PAC has registered with the Federal Election Commission, supposedly on behalf of Hillary Clinton‘s anticipated 2016 presidential campaign. The latest is HillaryFTW (an Internet abbreviation for “For The Win”), which lists Hector Pacheco of Los Angeles as its treasurer, according to its FEC report.
