    After the speeches were over and the TV cameras in Florida were turned off, the pro-Mitt Romney Super PAC called Restore Our Future disclosed its fundraising Tuesday night, just before the midnight ET deadline.

    It showed total receipts of $17.9 million during the year (all during the last quarter) and spending of only $6.5 million, showing a huge bankroll for the primaries and general election. The figures for January are not yet included.

    Top Wall Street moguls from big hedge fund and private equity firms, including principals from Bain Capital, topped the list of donors that pumped more than $17.9 million into the Mitt Romney Super PAC, helping to bankroll attack ads in the Republican primary states.

    The Romney Super PAC collected seven $1 million donations, including one from Paul Singer, the billionaire and secretive head of the Elliott Management hedge fund, and two others from hedge fund kingpins Julian Robertson of Tiger Management and Robert Mercer of Rennaissance Technologies.

    Others accounting for $1 million donations included Florida energy executive Bill Koch of Oxbow Carbon, who has also been a fundraiser for Romney's presidential campaign; Miguel Fernandez, who chairs a Miami private equity firm MBF Healthcare Partners; and Rooney Holdings of Tulsa Oklahoma.

    Also giving a total of $1 million were firms headed by Frank L. VanderSloot of Idaho. His firms, operating under the names Melaleuca Inc., Melaleuca of Asia Ltd. Co., Melaleuca of Japan Inc., Melaleuca of Southeast Asia Inc., gave a total of $250,000. The company sells Nicole Miller Timeless Age Defying Serum and other home "wellness" remedies. Forbes magazine has a profile of VanderSloot here.

    Three executives of Bain Capital, the private equity firm formerly headed by Romney, gave a total of $625,000.

    Why don't you?

    I researched Obama's money in the last election and the vast majority came from small donors.

    So fuck you, you little spineless punk.
