After nearly two years living in relative obscurity, Dick Morris’ Just Say No to Hillary PAC has died.
The cause of death was not immediately known, but the termination report filed today with the Federal Election Commission seemed to indicate the PAC died of starvation.
In its 21 months of life, it never received one dollar.
So despite an endless number of candidates on the Republican side, and a few on the Democratic side, all lining up to stop Hillary, no one apparently wanted to put that responsibility in Morris’ hands.
Morris, Bill Clinton’s campaign manager for the 1996 presidential race, had to leave the Clinton orbit after a prostitution scandal forced him to resign. He then tried his hand as a conservative writer and Fox News analyst—until his analysis proved to be wrong almost all of the time. He and Fox News parted ways in 2013.
But even though the PAC never received a dime, it did manage to cause controversy.
Earlier this year the FEC demanded the name—and that of Stop Hillary PAC—be changed, citing a federal law that bars unauthorized committees from including the name of a candidate in it’s name.
Just a few days ago Morris PAC’s attorney, Cleta Mitchell, told the FEC the name would not change, according to a report by the Center for Public Integrity.
In her letter to the FEC, Mitchell contends the name of Morris’s PAC was “consistent with the Commission’s regulations.”
But, alas, it was not meant to be.
Not word yet on why Morris had a change of heart, but given the PAC’s lonely existence, it’s probably for the best.
