This is why we need campaign finance reform, not the Liberal version either.
First of all, she should not have been allowed to spend more than she had available. Second she should not have been able to loan her campaign money, either she donates it to the campaign or she does not contribute to it.
If she has a method of getting her money back, then everyone that donated to her failure of a campaign should be entitled to a refund.
This rich liberals, Obama and Clinton, are leeches and have sucked up millions from the working class, and want a golden parachute to get their cash back while America’s that contributed to their campaigns are left holding the bag… Typical liberal politics, steal from the poor and give to the rich.
Now, the story not being reported, Obama and Hillary show how fiscally irresponsibility is handled… Ask Average working Americans to donate money, over spend, ask tax payers to reimburse them… This has been the problem for years with liberal fiscal policy, reminds me of how the liberal uncontrolled school boards operate…
Another reason Barack should keep his promise of public finance for the election, but nay, he can rake in more money without that…
This should be classified as a crime under fraud…
Sen. Barack Obama has asked top contributors to help his former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton, retire her debt, an Obama campaign source said Tuesday.
Sen. Barack Obama is to campaign with Sen. Hillary Clinton in Unity, New Hampshire, on Friday.
Obama did not direct members of his National Finance Committee to contribute to Clinton’s campaign, the source said, but asked them to do so if they were so inclined.
Clinton suspended her campaign and endorsed Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination this month.
She has amassed a campaign debt of about $22 million, but about $12 million of that is money the New York senator loaned to the campaign herself.
Individual donors can contribute $2,300 to individual candidates.
Clinton and Obama have scheduled a joint campaign appearance Friday in Unity, New Hampshire.
Obama said Tuesday that he had spoken with Clinton by phone earlier in the day as well as on Sunday.
“We had a good conversation,” he said. “We’re looking forward to seeing each other tomorrow and campaigning on Friday.”
