Yes, siree, Jon Corzine, the guy who simply doesn’t know where $1.2 billion of his clients money is, managed to raise $500,000 for Obama:
The money comes in, but who’s to know from where, and from whom?
Politico reports that the Obama campaign failed to respond to FEC inquires about whether its failure to report the donations was due to problems with its data-processing systems. Indeed, Team Obama has often been reticent in response to questions about its donor-identification procedures. In 2008, John McCain’s campaign publicly disclosed the identities of its entire donor base, including those contributing under $200, whose names are not legally required to be disclosed. But it was different over in Obamaworld. “We asked both campaigns for more information on small donors,” Massie Ritsch, a spokesman for the liberal Center for Responsive Politics, told Newsmax. “The Obama campaign never responded.”
Because of its large number of small donations, the Obama campaign wound up not disclosing the donor names for about half of the $800 million it raised in 2008. Indeed, the Washington Post reported that it went so far as to turn off the Address Verification System (a credit-card verification protocol) on its website.
Meanwhile, the Obama Campaign Flags ‘Less-Than-Reputable’ Romney Donors, since the Obama campaign’s donors are so “reputable” themselves.
