There's seems to be much confusion on why the American Action Network Super Pac pulled it"s funding of television ads supporting Richard Lugar for Senate. If you listen to the Mourdock minions, it's because Senator Lugar is losing ground in the polls and American Action Network was jumping ship for that reason. Not the case at all if you make the connections and fortunately for you, I have. There are two reasons: Fred Malek and Sarah Palin.
Check out Fred Malek, a rich venture capitalist, is one of the founders and funders of American Action Network. His venture firm is called Thayer Capital, after the famed West Point Commandant in the early 20th Century. Malek has made a lot of money, and has also become close to Sarah Palin (Fred Malek, Sarah Palin and the Case for Loyalty). When Palin endorsed Mourdock, Malek pulled his support from American Action Network (the same day), thus American Action Network pulling it ads for Senator Lugar.
And what makes this even more interesting is the ghost of Richard Nixon still prevails in the relationship between Fred Malek and Sarah Palin. During all the Watergate scandals, Malik was forced to resign from his White House position because it was revealed that Nixon ordered Malik to develop the Jewish political enemy list
