The following was posted on Daily Kos today, calling on Obama to reveal where his campaign funds are deposited, and demanding that those funds be transferred from the megabanks to community-based credit unions:
My campaign to challenge Barack Obama in the Democratic primary season is moving swiftly now. This week, the focus is on raising the last $300+ to be able to file for the New Hampshire primary by October 24.
At the same time, President Obama’s flood of emails tout that his campaign is approaching one million small donors: “None of us can do this alone. We’ve always relied on each other, not Washington lobbyists or corporate interests, to build our campaign.” See, he wants us to believe that he’s running a “people” campaign, unlike those nasty corporate-supported Republicans.
But while the media reports on the fundraising horse race (Obama has raised about $100 million) and Obama’s fundraising on Wall Street (whether it’s more or less than he raised in 2008, or more from Wall Street than Romney has raked in, etc), one story is shockingly unreported: not where Obama’s money is coming from, but where is it going?
