I don't have much commentary, just thought DP would be interested. Financial disclosures for Super-PAC donors came out yesterday. Here is the list from NYTimes:

Who?s Financing the ?Super PACs? - Graphic - NYTimes.com

Those in the financial industry might recognize some of the following guys:

Chris Shumway
Daniel Loeb (Third Point)
Mark Andreessen
John Paulson
Paul Tudor Jones
Peter Thiel
Julian Robertson (Tiger)
Robert Mercer
Kenneth Griffin (Citadel)

Weirdly Obama's PAC only shows $4.4 million in Super PAC donations. When Republicans refer to the billion dollars he's raising are they referring to all donations? Where can I get more transparency on who those donors are?

Obama isn't in need of opposition research commercials just yet. Come general election such funds will be pouring in for him as well.
