The Federal Election Commission has just fined President Obama’s 2008 campaign to the tune of $375,000 for basically not having their books in order — or having no paperwork on the books at all — for a series of donations made toward the end of the campaign:

The fines are among the largest ever levied on a presidential campaign by the FEC and stem from a series of missing notices for nearly 1,200 contributions totaling nearly $1.9 million.

Campaigns are required to file reports within 48 hours on donations of $1,000 or more received during the final 20 days of the campaign. The fine was detailed in a conciliation agreement sent to Sean Cairncross, chief counsel for the Republican National Committee.
[...]
The fines followed an audit of the campaign by the FEC in the aftermath of complaints by the Republican National Committee and others groups. The Obama campaign paid $230,000 in fines and the Democratic National Committee, which ran a joint fundraising committee with the campaign, paid the remainder.

Those “missing notices” wouldn’t happen to be from overseas donations, would they?

    "Those “missing notices” wouldn’t happen to be from overseas donations, would they?"

    Makes you wonder just how much Morsi and the MB really sent.

    Tip of the iceberg.

    Fascinating isn`t it how various dem leaders in recent years, since the campaign of `08, have promised to be the most honest, open, transparent admin. in history; have promised to cut deficits, spending, unemployment and a long list of other positives, but have proven to be and do the exact opposite !?

    And how their loyal supporters never notice.

    It's truly lost on them.

    Someone recently posted a photo taken at one of Hitler's rallies about the uninformed voters who supported the Third Reich. Scary stuff when you consider that we see that today. Expecting January 21 to be a similar sight.

    Well, I figure what`s not lost is admired. They`re sick puppies !

    The numbers may be down, but the spirits will be light and airy !

    Of course. What do you expect from a bunch of airheads?

    I have another magnetic sticker-sign (similar to my avatar) that I sometimes wear on my truck, it`s round with the letters "U.N." in black w/ a red circle and slash line. A shocked lib friend asked why I had THAT ? I replied simply, "They`re corrupt and inept" !

    This admin. requires the addition of, "and extremely dangerous" !

    CB,

    I'm afraid now the Unholy Alliance of Dim's & Corporations is now complete, progressives now comprehend the concept of becoming "a serial settler".

    We noted this all during the Housing Boom. Mortgage lenders trampled all over debtors and even investors Rights and… thought the PROFIT was worth the risk so in this case, trillions in BOODLE well worth any fine levied against them!

    Just the cost of doing bidness I guess?

    If you put your ear against their ear, you can hear the ocean ….
