Mercer Supports Altschuler With $500k

Head of the Harbor resident and hedge fund manager donated to super PAC supporting Randy Altschuler.

Local hedge fund manager Robert Mercer – previously reported to have donated to super PACs supporting Mitt Romney – has jumped into the local ring, according to a Think Progress report, supporting First Congressional Candidate Randy Altschuler, R-St. James, with $500,000.

Mercer, the co-CEO of East Setauket-based Renniasance Technologies, was reported to have supporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Prosperty First Inc., a super PAC supporting Altschuler, was created in April and stated in its most recent report that Mercer contributed the majority of the $635,000 raised in its first few months. The group has purchased nearly $275,000 in ads so far.

"Don Corleone, I am honored and grateful that you have invited me to your home on the wedding day of your daughter. May their first child be a masculine child." And may this small gift assure me of great personal tax breaks like you gave to our family in Nevada.

Looks like Randy's campaign may soon be "sleeping with the fishes".
