    Obama likely to escape campaign audit

    By KENNETH P. VOGEL | 11/11/08 11:14 AM EST

    The Federal Election Commission is unlikely to conduct a potentially embarrassing audit of how Barack Obama raised and spent his presidential campaign’s record-shattering windfall, despite allegations of questionable donations and accounting that had the McCain campaign crying foul.

    Adding insult to injury for Republicans: The FEC is obligated to complete a rigorous audit of McCain’s campaign coffers, which will take months, if not years, and cost McCain millions of dollars to defend.

    I guess this means that we don't have to worry about ethics coming back to Washington anytime soon. This means we the people will never know who actually bought the Whitehouse.

    There is no way he raised the amount of money he did as quickly as he did without violating the law. Either purposefully or with out proper oversight on his methods.

    or maybe they're not investigating it because he didn't do anything wrong?


    that would be the logical conclusion

    the logical conclusion? Why would it be the logical conclusion? because he is incapable of wrong-doing?

    because when people don't investigate stuff it usually means there's nothing to investigate...common sense tells you that

    Sure thing. The amount of money and the speed he raised it is a single good reason to investigate. The laws on amounts and from whom money can be collect are stacked against that amount of money that quickly. Add in he had to return money to Arabs early on ( only after being forced to) that he comes from the most corrupt political machine in the entire country and the press gave him a free pass and it adds up to sloppy bookkeeping and probably illegal activity. Probably from foreign Governments and from Business and Individual wealthy supporters.

    It doesn't mean he's done nothing wrong, only that they don't think they could find anything.

    You must understand that your logical conclusion is vastly different than a liberal logical conclusion!
