Trump proposes PAC contributions to underwrite inauguration activities . . .illegal???Edit

I'm neither a lawyer nor an American. Is this http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/23/us/politics/trump-inaugural-donors.html?rref=collection%2Fnewseventcollection%2FThe%20Trump%20White%20House a legal use of PAC funds? "the decision to limit donations from certain [unidentified] groups was 'in line with the president-elect’s thoughts on ethics reform.' " that just makes one laugh. If the use of PAC funds is legal it presumably would be so for everyone - or vice versa. . .?142.114.162.141 (talk) 22:52, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Capitalization?Edit

Is it weird that the article keeps switching between "Super PAC" and "super PAC"? Shouldn't it be consistent? Theotherchairduck (talk) 19:05, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Hybrid PACEdit

Given that the more notable topic of "super PACs" is only covered as a section in this article, it seems reasonable that coverage of Hybrid PACs should also be presented here as a section. signed, Rosguill talk 22:40, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

I had actually noticed that myself, when I created the article. I do think that "Super PAC" would also merit its own article, as there's an abundance of material available, far more than there is for Hybrid PAC (although Hybrid PACs are a more recent creation). I think this article should have two short sections on each type, with hatnotes pointing to the main articles for each topic. Ewen Douglas (talk) 23:45, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
That sounds reasonable to me. I was honestly quite surprised to find that Super PAC wasn't an independent article. signed, Rosguill talk 23:48, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
