Report: Obama Films Campaign Ad In White House, Possibly Violating FEC Laws?
NRO's Jim Geraghty raises the question of whether Barack Obama filmed a video for his reelection campaign in the White House, which may possibly be a violation of federal election laws.Of course the White House claims that there is nothing to see here.
UPDATE: RCP's Alexis Simendinger reports that the White House disputes any inference of wrongdoing. A presidential spokesman said that the video does not constitute fundraising under the law, that portions of the White House can legally be used for that purpose anyway, and that previous presidents have done so.Too funny. For all of 2008, during campaigning, we heard how an Obama administration would be so different than every other previous administration. Then when they get caught of improprieties the first thing they do is claim that they are just like every other administration.
If you voted for this idiot in 2008, and you make the same mistake in 2012, well then there isn't much hope for you.
