Who’s Paying to Promote RFK, Jr. for Senate?

Wasting no time, ads are already running on Facebook promoting Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to replace Hillary Clinton as she leaves her Senate seat to become Secretary of State.

techPresident reported yesterday – before ads were running – that Michael Pinto, the creator of the Facebook group described it “an informal grassroots thing.” The group asks supporters of RFK, Jr. to write to Governor Patterson asking him to appoint the young Kennedy to his father’s seat in the Senate.

The group seems to be growing rapidly – from 17 reported as of yesterday to 135 as of this writing.

My question is: who’s paying to promote this?

And how long will it be before Andrew Cuomo and some of the other top candidates have their own Facebook groups?
