Peter's donation

Maybe someone can answer this for me...

Gary mentions in the video that Peter's $150K donation was spent on Google ads and so it isn't an independent expenditure. Maybe I'm missing something here but how does this makes sense? If the Google ads were actually spent in advocacy for Ron Paul they would have to be included as an independent expenditure right? But they are not listed as an independent expenditure - so what were the ads for?

Again I may be missing something here. I'm not an FEC lawyer but this doesn't sound right to me.
