Federal PAC Started by Treasurer Who Provided a Different Path for Money

The New Jersey Agenda PAC has been registered as a federal PAC by a treasurer who is the chairman of a New Jersey local-level committee that provided “a different path” for political money.

The treasurer of The New Jersey Agenda PAC is John Tully of Spring Lake, N.J. He registered the PAC as a committee supporting more than one federal candidate. Tully’s past federal contributions include $1,750 to the New Jersey Democratic State Committee in 2003, and four contributions totaling $2,474 to the campaign of Rep. Frank Pallone Jr., D-N.J., in 1998, 1992 and 2004.

John Tully is chairman of the Coalition for Government Efficiency, a local committee that has given to New Brunswick Mayor James Cahill. In a New Jersey Star-Ledger article in April 2012, titled “How N.J. PACs are skirting the law on pay-to-pay,” Tully was quoted as saying, “If anyone gives directly to a candidate, there are specific rules that prohibit them. So we’ve given a different path.”

Tully could not be reached for comment on his new PAC.
