From the liberal Center for Public Integrity, about the conservative Republican businessman's super PAC: "Cain Connections PAC, a super PAC led by former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain and administered by his cigarette-smoking right hand man Mark Block, finds itself struggling to stay solvent. And relevant. For one, the super PAC took in just $640 in contributions between Nov. 27 and Dec. 31, new federal filings show. That's a pittance compared to the more than $1.24 million it collected from people and political committees during the rest of 2012."
More: "Most of the money Cain Connections PAC generated in late 2012 — $19,294 — came from renting lists of information on its supporters to a pair of Virginia-based political fundraising firms, its latest federal disclosure indicates. Meanwhile, the super PAC's minimal expenditures aren't going toward political advocacy at all but to bankroll its own internal operations."
