…but there’s something deeply weird about the fact that Obama for America took this long to announce that they and the DNC had a fundraising haul of 181 million in September*. That’s a great number for the campaign – it won’t allow them to dominate the airwaves like it would have (and in fact did) in September of 2008, but it’s great – but rumors about this haul have been circulating for the last two days. Throwing this out on a Saturday AFTER getting shellacked on Wednesday makes very little sense.
…Unless, of course, this is true:
Next week, same magazine will expose Obama campaign’s illegal donor scandal. twitter.com/guypbenson/sta…

*Not a clue about how much money Romney-Ryan brought in September, although they’ve collected 12 million in the last 48 hours. More importantly, volunteering is up. Which is why I ain’t worrying about it.
[UPDATE]: And then there’s this: Windfall: Obama Raises $181 Million, Only Around 2% of Donations Reportable. Although I’d like to think that the Obama administration isn’t quite THAT dumb.
@moelane I’m pretty sure you tied everything together. Was my immediate thought too. Check Drudge – only 2% of donations were reportable.
