News bites: Romney energy adviser gave to super-PAC
The Associated Press reports that Harold Hamm, an energy adviser to Mitt Romney, is also a big donor to a super-PAC associated with the candidate.
More from AP: “Hamm, whose company did not return telephone calls from The Associated Press, is among a group of energy tycoons who have made lucrative donations to Restore Our Future, a super-PAC supporting Romney. Unlike the others, Hamm has matched his contributions with his role personally advising Romney on energy policy — blurring the line between the campaign and the super-PACs that support them but are legally barred from coordinating with candidates.”
Update: NBC broke the Hamm news Monday.
