Jeopardy Question: “What is a super PAC?”

Adam Smith, of Every Voice, alerted me via email that the term super PAC made it onto Jeopardy! today. The whole clue was: “Unveiled in 2014, the Freedom Partners Action Fund isn’t a regular PAC but this kind that can give without limits.” The correct answer: “What is a super PAC.”

In point of fact, the correct clue would have referenced a PAC “that can spend” without limits. But no matter. There were a number of other political money clues on the show, including: “PACs must register with the FEC, short for this.” The answer, of course: “Federal Election Commission.” Watch the whole episode here.
