Mississippi Church Apparently Forms Super PAC

"The full-page advertisement in Mississippi Link, a weekly newspaper aimed at black residents of Jackson, the state's capital, urged readers to vote for Senator Thad Cochran in the June 3 Republican primary," the New York Times reports.

"That might be unremarkable except for one thing: The political action committee that paid for the ad shares an address and leadership with a local church. 'All Citizens for Mississippi' did not appear to exist at the time of the ad's publication. Its registration as a super PAC with the Federal Election Commission was posted online last week and contains one important clue about its origins. All Citizens for Mississippi shares an address with New Horizon Church International in Jackson and also names Jacqueline Vann, the church's chief financial officer, as its treasurer."
