Pity the Multi-Millionaire Campaign Donor, Ctd.

I'm still out on Fresca leave, but I hereby use a lunch break to point to the latest development in the "pity the megabucks Super PAC donor" trend of a few weeks back. Frank VanderSloot, a national finance co-chair of the Romney campaign, sat down with the Heritage Foundation.

Count the references to VanderSloot's official campaign role and his prior political activism. Their absence make it easier to believe that VanderSloot is a random, successful American who's being unfairly portrayed as a "bad guy."
