A federal PAC of a union has acted as a pass through for $125,000 of union treasury funds to be used for independent expenditures by a Democratic super PAC.

The American Postal Workers Union Committee on Political Action reported it received $125,000 on 6/12 from Wachovia Bank listed as a “transfer from Gen Treasury.” On the same day the PAC sent $125,000 to the House Majority PAC and listed it as a “contribution to independent expenditure committee.”
