Obama Campaign Still Asking for Contributions

In what he called “my last election,” President Barack Obama scored a hard-fought but comfortable victory over Mitt Romney last month, but that doesn’t mean his email list will no longer be hit up for campaign cash. To wit, Mr. Obama’s electoral operation, Obama for America, is asking their supporters to contribute after filling out a form backing his plan to increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans.

“Thanks for sharing your story. The next chapter begins today. Stand with President Obama for the next four years,” a subsequent contribution form declares. Suggested donation amounts range from $15 to $1,000 and a picture of Mr. Obama is presented with the text, “Stand with me, work with me, let’s finish what we’ve started.”

It’s not a surprise Mr. Obama’s operations are still moving forward in some form; his campaign manager, Jim Messina, had already publicly signaled that Obama for America would continue to exist.

    Be happy that so far it’s a contribution and not a deduction.

    So a) what campaign is this for and b) what regulations are there to control what Teh One does with this money?

    Is campaign financing so loose these days he can solicit donations for Moochelle’s ass reduction?

    Can he use these funds to pay for a brazilian for Reggie?

    Enquiring minds want to know!
