Focus of Richardson Probe Gave Obama $30,000
Oh this just keeps getting better all the time. No wonder Obama’s been so quiet since the Democratic Illinois Governor Rod “The Senate Seat Salesman” Blagojevich’s world began to crumble. The corruption that keeps rearing its ugly head in Democratic circles is getting so close it may just be crushing his chest.
Today we find out the same guy at the center of Democratic Governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson’s “pay-to-play” scandal lined Obama’s campaign pockets to the tune of $30,000.
What was that we heard throughout the campaign? Something along the lines of “we did all this with $5 contributions from the common folk.” Lies, lies, lies, and more lies. $30K is more than Bob the UAW worker’s change from his morning coffee, a lot more. Apparently Obama’s campaign was financed no differently than any other, with big money from influential donors.
Oh he has a website and I’m sure he collected a few bucks through it from the average Joe, but now we know he took a lot of money in through rubbing elbows with the elitist powerbrokers he claimed to despise.
In late September, Rubin attended an exclusive Los Angeles fundraiser for Obama, held at the Beverly Hills’ Greystone Mansion. Attendees gave tens of thousands of dollars which the campaign split between its own coffers, the Democratic National Committee and state-level campaign groups supporting Obama and Democratic candidates. The technique helps campaigns take in from individuals far more than the $2,300 maximum they are allowed to give to a single campaign fund.
B-b-b-but…didn’t he tell us he wanted to get that money out of politics?
Two scandal ridden Democratic governors with close ties to the bringer of Hope and Change and the unscrupulous actions of Democratic operators in stealing the Senate seat in MN are making this transition more and more interesting. Obama hasn’t been burned, but he appears closer to the fire with this latest development.
Our next president just might be bringing Chicago-style politics to DC. How’s that for change?
