Former U.S. Senate candidate, Sharron Angle has launched a new PAC to support Republicans hoping to gain a majority in 2012. The PAC's webpage says resources will be used to counter the Reid-machine attacks, and work to defeat Senate Democrats at the polls by explaining their records to the voters. But the Huffington Post reports that Angle's Our Voice PAC comes close to blurring the line that divides corrupting activity from non-corrupting under campaign finance rules that were recently changed as a result of the Supreme Court, in its landmark Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission ruling.
 
We'll talk to Bill Allison, Editorial Director at the Sunlight Foundation a non-partisan group that promotes government openness and transparency about the PAC.Our own Ian Mylchreest also joins us to discuss how the PAC impacts Angle's political aspirations in 2012.
