Fox News PAC Hosted Fundraiser For Democratic Senator
Last year, Politico noted that News America/Fox PAC, Political Action Committee of Fox News parent company News Corporation, was slowing down in donations, possibly thanks to overseas scandals.
Sunlight Foundation’s Party Time obtained an invitation to Senator Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) “11th Annual Crawfish Fest,” a large fundraiser she puts on. The invitation lists News America/Fox PAC as a co-sponsor of the fundraiser, meaning it donated at least $1,000 to the senator. We wonder what News Corporation is hoping to get out of Landrieu in return.
