What? Jon Corzine Still A Bundler For Obama?!!?

The guy who "lost" hundreds of millions of dollars of client money?

Fundraising for Obama?!

Corzine, according to the Obama campaign, has once again helped raise more than $500,000.


Via @PoliSisyphus

The Obama campaign is attempting to fire interest in Romney's "high dollar donors." Shouldn't we know who they are?

I saw someone crack a joke about Jon Corzine. Actually, it's right there, in that link.

But it turns out -- Corzine really is one of Obama's own "high dollar donors." Or bundlers/fundraisers.

Hello?

Is this real?

Is this really happening?

I'm still on Earth, right?

Jon Corzine, subject of an SEC Investigation by the Obama Administration, is raising money for the Obama Administration?!

128 Actually this one is important. I think Ace may need to go full Weiner on this one.

Barack Obama is using, as a fund bundler, a man credibly accused- and not yet acquitted- of theft on a major scale. He needs to be made to answer: Does he think it appropriate to receive those funds, when Corzine and MF Global are under investigation; Will he return the funds; Failing to return the funds, will he see that they are distributed to those whose money was lost/taken in the MF Global scandal; Failing that- why not?

He should be hounded every day on this issue.

I mean, he gets free luxury travel. When he wants to make a speech, he gets free air time. Free security services. .....All kinds of free shit. On.our.dime.

So what would he need to spend a billion dollars on? He's already got the MFM doing campaign commercials for him, whenever they open their mouths. ....So what else is there to pay for? Attack ads? Paying people to say nice things? ....Paying people to not spill their guts?

138 Proust said, "Every 'in spite of' is always a 'because of.'" (I'm paraphrasing quite a bit, since he's Proust and I'm not, but just go with me on this.)

So, when you become perplexed by reading, "In spite of the fact that Corzine should be in prison now for stealing then losing a billion dollars, he's bundling for Obama's campaign," just make this mental substitution, and all becomes clear: "Because of the fact that Corzine should be in prison now for stealing then losing a billion dollars, he's bundling for Obama's campaign."

They have gotten away with all kinds of brazen and illegal crap for years... why do you think the media would hold them accountable now?

Just like last election, Obama has turned OFF all the checks on credit cards donations, so the only records they retain for the FEC are what you SAY your name is... thus you can give as much as you wish, as long as you give under different names.

Obamas Lawyer last weekADMITTED in Court, that the Birth Cert he released last year is a fake... yet... crickets....

Obama admin has been in contempt of court for YEARS on Gulf Drilling.

They routinly ignore Freedom of information Act Requests...

And they were complicit in the MURDER of a Federal Officer in Gun Walker... as if you commit a felony which leads to Murder, you are an accomplice to said murder...
