WASHINGTON - The Obama Administration has turned its campaign network into Organizing For Action (OFA), and is raising $50 million to push the president's liberal agenda. How do they plan raise the money? For a mere $500,000 contribution to OFA, one can attend quarterly meetings at the White House and be invited to other advocacy planning sessions. In other words, for a steep price, donors will have access to the Obama Administration - commonly referred to in Chicago as "pay to play."
Shocking, MSNBC's Chuck Todd says...and hypocritical. We here in Illinois wonder...what took him so long? Obama's scheme seems eerily similar to Rod Blagojevich's pay-to-play schemes. Maybe it's simply "unethical" in DC to employ such tactics - something Rod Blagojevich defended "as the way things were done" until the cell was latched behind him. Chicago now on the Potomac.
