House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's hair may be full of secrets, but it was unable to contain the fact that he recently donated $25,000 to a Super PAC "devoted to defeating incumbent House members," including some of his fellow Republicans. Cantor is reportedly spending his holiday weekend attempting to soothe hurt feelings over his contribution to the Campaign for Primary Accountability which, he says, was specifically intended to back up his endorsement of Representative Adam Kinzinger in his Republican-on-Republican primary battle in Illinois. Still, according to one GOP strategist, "people" (including House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, and National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions) are "a little bit stunned."
