Insight: Super Pacs: Follow The Money - If You Can

LAWRENCEVILLE, Georgia (Reuters) - December 2011 was a busy month for supporters of presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

Suddenly he was being barraged by negative TV ads produced by Restore Our Future, a Super PAC for rival candidate Mitt Romney.

Senh: Super PACs, with their unlimited contributions, pretty much make individual contributions, with their limited amounts, negligible.
