Homegrown: Not everything is made here in the US, but anything related to the race for the White House probably should be. According to Politico, Jeb Bush's latest Super PAC ad about America's future contains stock footage from other countries. A field used in the ad is actually located in Cornwall, England and is available on shutterstock.com for between $19 and $79. A shot of a construction worker was actually taken on a building in southeast Asia. You can get the HD version of that clip for just $35 dollars on pond5.com. A Right to Rise spokesman has not yet responded.
Lone Star Loneliness: Someone Jeb Bush won't be seeing on the debate stage tonight is Governor Rick Perry. And now that the former Texas governor is officially out of the 2016 race one of his top donors is asking for his money back. Texas billionaire Darwin Deason had previously contributed $5 million to Perry's Opportunity and Freedom PAC. Deason's son told Politico that his father now expects that all funds will be sent back and that the committee will shut down. The PAC initially said it was still discussing its options but a senior member now tells the Daily Caller that it will return all donations.
"Our attorney advised us that the law does allow us to refund money to our large-dollar donors like the Deasons. We are talking with Mr. Deason at this time. If he wants his contribution back we will send it back to him." The Deason family said they are going to *quote* let things shake out a bit before choosing another candidate to support.
Precautionary Measures: And speaking of political contributions it's always best to double check to see where your money is going before you donate it. Actor Daniel Craig -- most commonly-known for his role as James Bond -- gave nearly $50,000 to a Super PAC supporting Bernie Sanders. The problem -- this group is not actually affiliated with the Sanders campaign. According to the Center for Public Integrity, the founder of Americans Socially United has a history of financial and legal woes. Back in June the PAC was forced to change its name from Bet on Bernie 2016 after the FEC determined that it “did not appear to be an authorized committee of that candidate.” As for Daniel Craig , he does not seem to be concerned about his donation saying in a statement ,"currently, I have been informed of no evidence to question that my donation has not been used as intended. Should that situation occur, then clearly, I will review my position." The Sanders campaign has asked the committee to cease and desist all of its activities.
