Mystery Firm Donates $1 Million To Pro-Mitt Romney Super PAC, Then Dissolves

A company called W Spann LLC, formed on March 15th, has dissolved shortly after making a $1 million contribution on April 28th to Restore Our Future, a committee organized in support of GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. According to corporate records obtained by NBC News, the business was formed by Boston-based lawyer Cameron Casey who, as she notes in her online bio on her employer’s website, specializes in “comprehensive estate planning advice to high-net-worth individuals and families.”

The company was dissolved on July 12th, two weeks before Restore Our Future made its first campaign filing. A spokesperson for Ropes & Gray, the law firm for which Casey works, told NBC News that “the firm won’t be making any comment on this matter at this time.” Also noteworthy: Rope & Gray represents Bain Capital, an investment firm formerly headed by Romney.

Adding to the mystery is the fact that the company’s purported address in midtown Manhattan has no records of such a tenant.
