The Republican National Committee plans to file a fundraising complaint against Democrat Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, alleging amongst other things that it’s impossible to say just who has donated, and attempting to hint that there must be something wrong with people being so, like, secretive about giving Obama money. As if they have something to hide, or aren’t real Americans…
Cairncross said little is known about many of Obama’s donors because the campaign is not required to disclose detailed information about people who give less than $200.
The Obama campaign, which is not accepting public funds, has raised more than $468 million. About half has come from small donors, a point of pride for the Obama campaign.
As of a few days ago, my husband David and I have given a total of $200 to the Obama campaign (actually, in two chunks, once to the Presidential campaign, and once to the Democratic campaign for Obama). We’re shady small donors, and we feel eeeeeeevil. Evil, I tell you! Because we’re proud to buck the Republican sleaze machine, and be labeled as such.
