‘Bipartisan’ Super PAC Funded by Enron Billionaire Only Attacks Republicans Where It Matters

Patients For Affordable Drugs Action, a super PAC funded by former Enron executive John Arnold, claims to be “bipartisan,” but has only attacked Republican candidates in competitive districts so far, while supporting Democrats.

The group announced on Tuesday that they will be supporting Rep. Francis Rooney (R-FL) in his reelection campaign. But Rooney represents an R+13 district, according to the Cook Political Report. This means Rooney’s in a relatively safe seat.

In fact, Patients For Affordable Drugs Action has so far only backed Republican candidates that are in safe districts, like Rep. David McKinley (R-WV), who represents an R+19 district.

The group is attacking Republican candidates in competitive races, like Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R-ME). Poliquin represents Maine’s Second Congressional District, which Cook rates as an R+2 district.

While Patients For Affordable Drugs Action wants voters to think it’s a bipartisan effort focused on the cost of prescription drugs, the group’s public efforts suggest its top priorities are attacking Republicans and boosting Democrats.

According to a recent Federal Election Commission disclosure, Patients For Affordable Drugs Action spent $1.475 million to run attack ads against the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in New Jersey, Bob Hugin.

Patients For Affordable Drugs Action is running a highly-misleading ad supporting Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) in her reelection bid.

The Action Now Initiative (ANI), which is Arnold’s political organization, is responsible for funding a large portion of Patients For Affordable Drugs Action. Arnold and his wife have been using their immense wealth to promote a liberal agenda across America in recent years.

Patients For Affordable Drugs Action touts themselves as a “bipartisan” super PAC. Their spending, though – and the spending of the Arnolds – tells a different story.
