Pro-Gay Republican Super PAC Reports $2.75 Million Take in First Quarter
Paul Singer's American Unity Super PAC, which was launched in June 2012 by billionaire Paul Singer, raised $2.75 million over the past three months, most donated by Singer himself:
The three-month haul for American Unity PAC is by far the biggest so far for the super PAC, which was around for the 2012 election but had relatively little funding. The committee raised about the same amount in all of 2012 and pulled in just $260,000 in 2013.
The super PAC was boosted early this year by $1.75 million in donations from GOP donor Paul Singer, who has been among the most vocal and well-funded proponents of gay marriage in the GOP. Another $1 million came from billionaire Massachusetts investor Seth Klarman.
Only one other person contributed more than $25 to the super PAC.
Singer, who was also a major supporter of Mitt Romney, has a married gay son.
