Mr. Obama announced today that the D.N.C. will no longer accept contributions from federal lobbyists or political action committees, which follows the rules he established for his own campaign last year.
“I’ve sent a strong signal in this campaign by refusing the contributions of registered federal lobbyists and PACs and today,” Mr. Obama told an audience in Bristol, Va. “I’m announcing that going forward, the Democratic National Committee will uphold the same standard and won’t take another dime from Washington lobbyists or special interest PACs. They do not fund my campaign. They will not fund our party.”
He added: “We’re here today because we know that if we’re going to make real progress, this time must be different.” “We want the Democratic Party to conform to his standards of openness to reduce the influence of special interests,”

how does that org give 9mill to Obama, and give 1.5mill AGAINST McCain?
I'm asking 'cause I really don't understand the chart.
527c orgs like moveon...
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
I really enjoy when the righties get a hard on over a New York Times Article....
No ... no wood here ... I just find it interesting. Why do we have campaign
laws if the candidates don't follow them.
The other thing about this stuff:
All that $$$ to run for office ... you know how many schools & health clinics that could put all that money to better use? You have a candidate that the poor & minorities thinks is their guy ... and he's using all that $$$ just to get a job. mcCain is no better ... he's just not as good at fundraising as BHO is.
Anyways ... how do you spend $9 million now and $85 million in the future and nobody notices and/or nobody cares?
