Interesting New Political App!


Our personal injury lawyers are always fascinated by new technology, particularly medical advances and car accident advancements.

But technology continues to amaze in so many areas. Just yesterday we heard of a new app that tells the user which super PACS are funding a particular political ad. “PAC” stands for political action committee. Political action committees are funded by people or corporations and can have significant influence over elections. PACs can donate directly to candidates or they can fund advertisements and other activities to support a candidate.


With this new app (supposedly to be out soon), users will be able to hold their iPhone up to an advertisement while it is playing, and the Super PAC App will draw on third-party data to tell the user which super PAC is running the ad. It will classify the super PAC’s political leaning and identify the claims the ad is making. The app will then link the user to related articles that could help the user verify the advertiser’s claim.

This doesn’t have a lot to do with accident injury cases, but we are sharing it because it is a great way to keep well-informed about political candidates and who is supporting them. Here is the article where you can check it out:

Engagement in our political system is important, and the duty of every citizen. This is another way for people to stay informed and aware.
