We are just Finding Out about this now … Barack Obama ’08 Campaign fined $375,000 by FEC



Brought to you from the most transparent and ethical administration ever.  The 2008 Barack Obama campaign has been fined $375,000 by the FEC, Federal Election Commission, for reporting violations of campaign donations received during the final days of the campaign. Yes, you read that correctly, 2008!!! As per the FEC, the fines are among the largest ever levied on a presidential campaign. So what took them so long to figure this out and why was this not reported to ‘We the People” prior to the 2012 presidential election?

President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for reporting violations related to a set of donations received during the final days 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 filings for nearly 1,200 contributions totaling nearly $1.9 million. Campaigns are required to file the reports during the final weeks of the campaign.

I wonder when we will learn of any 2012 Obama campaign irregularities … 2050?  Wonder when the FEC will come down on the 2012 Obama campaign for its online/credit card vulnerabilities and donations from foreign nationals? How do you justify not  using CVV on their campaign donation page, yet Obama required it on his online site for Obamawear?
