A New York hedge fund manager, one of the GOP's major fundraisers, has created a super Pac that will encourage Republican candidates to back same-sex marriage, reports the Sunlight Foundation.
The filing, made public by the Federal Election Commission on Thursday, shows Paul E. Singer contributed $1 million to establish the new American Unity Inc. super PAC.
Singer, 68, is the father of a gay son who married his partner in Massachusetts, where gay marriage is legal. So far, Singer remains the only donor to the American Unity super PAC.
