This evening I stopped to take a closer look at the signs mentioned
earlier today. The little tiny print says "Paid for and authorized by
IAFF FIREPAC. Not authorized by any candidate or committee".
Not surprisingly when John Kerry was at the Merrimack VFW, there a
large presence of firefighter union members.

Search some one the IAFF, vis
it their FIREPAC part
of the IAFF website. I've not found
too much on the PACs section of
opensecrets.org, but surely
there is some info there as well. The Center for Public
Integrity (never heard of them, main site is here), has some basic
info about the IAFF FirePAC.
