    The superPAC rules seem to say that the PAC can't coordinate with the candidate. That seems to mean the PAC can't pay the candidate (or his wife, etc) a fat salary. Indeed, since PACs are corporations it would seem that the usual laws prohibiting corporations from paying people who don't do work for them (because coordination is prohibited) would stop that scam, too.

    But I say "seems" because superPACs are a brand new scam, designed to deceive. And because any prosecution of a losing presidential candidate for such a scam would be inhibited by easy cries of "witch hunt by the sore winner".
