Something Jack and I can agree on.
FROM CNN’s Jack Cafferty:
Just to name a few.
In total – ABC News reports that 41 of the more than 360 expected attendees are campaign bundlers or volunteer fundraisers for Mr. Obama’s reelection efforts.
It’s estimated the group on hand last night raised nearly $11 million of the $250 million President Obama and the Democrats have raised so far for 2012.
Everybody understands election campaigns require money – but is this the proper use of the White House?
These folks are known as “bundlers” and are a big deal in campaign finance. Federal campaign rules limit individual contributions to $2,500. That’s where bundlers kick in and raise the big bucks from their associates.
President Obama also invited several campaign donors to a State Dinner for the president of South Korea back in October. Sort of like using the Lincoln bedroom to repay favors, isn’t it?
