Lee Rizzuto On Board Of New Trump Super PAC

February 25, 2024 | 0 Comments

A new super PAC supporting former President Donald Trump has formed, with former U.S Consul to Bermuda Lee Rizzuto serving as one of the board members, according to a story in the New York Times.

The story said, “A new super PAC supporting former President Donald J. Trump — and backed by a member of his private club, Mar-a-Lago — has emerged with plans to air ads during the presidential general election. The group, Right for America, is being supported by Ike Perlmutter, the billionaire former chief executive of Marvel Entertainment, and will be led by a Trump ally, Sergio Gor, according to two people briefed on the matter.

“Mr. Trump has blessed the committee in private conversations, according to two people familiar with the matter. A spokesman for the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“Two other board members are also close associates of Mr. Trump. One of them is Lee Rizzuto, whom Mr. Trump nominated as the U.S. envoy to Barbados and several Caribbean islands but who saw his chances sink over past social-media posts pushing conspiracy theories about some senators. He ultimately became Mr. Trump’s appointee to lead the U.S. consulate in Bermuda. The other board member, Anthony Lomangino, is a Mar-a-Lago member who ran a waste management company. He donated money to a legal-defense fund during the Trump presidency to help people ensnared in the investigation into whether Mr. Trump and his campaign conspired with Russians.”
