Black America's PAC
This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

Its name misleadingly suggests that it represents the point of view of African-Americans, but in fact opinion polls and voting patterns show that the vast majority of African-Americans disagree with BAMPAC's political positions.
BAMPAC claims to be nonpartisan, but its IRS tax statement explicitly states that its mission is to elect Republicans.
