Paul Singer, the Republican billionaire that’s donated check after check to fighting for gay marriage—and to support Mitt Romney—has started his own super PAC to get seemingly pro-gay, Republican politicians elected to office.

According to Politico, Singer has used $1 million to start the American Unity PAC, the group will back three Republican candidates in the 2012 election: Reps. Mary Bono Mack of California, New York's Richard Hanna and Judy Biggert of Illinois, none of whom are vocal equality advocates.

Politico reports the super PAC “isn’t saying right now how much it is planning to spend in each of the three races in which it is getting involved. But the next campaign filing is expected to show the group has raised $1.6 million, with other commitments that will be fulfilled.”
