POLITICIANS running for president often borrow the tunes of famous musicians to spark the crowd's energy at campaign events.
But how many bands get their names included in the title of a Super PAC, the political-action committees now allowed to raise unlimited funds?
Meet Hall and Oates Fans for America, a new Super PAC registered by Atlanta waiter William Hansmann with the Federal Election Commission on Monday. Hansmann tells us that the Super PAC started as a joke among a handful of friends. He was amazed at how easy it was to register with the FEC.
"Who isn't a Hall and Oates fan in America?" Hansmann said when we asked how he came up with the name. "All those other Super PACs have those ridiculously ambiguous names that any American would stand for if they didn't know what those PACs stand for."
