    Obama '08 campaign fined $375,000 by FEC | Political Headlines | Comcast

    President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for reporting violations related to a set of donations received during the final days of the campaign.

    The fines are among the largest ever levied on a presidential campaign by the FEC and stem from a series of missing notices for nearly 1,200 contributions totaling nearly $1.9 million.

    Campaigns are required to file reports within 48 hours on donations of $1,000 or more received during the final 20 days of the campaign. The fine was detailed in a conciliation agreement sent to Sean Cairncross, chief counsel for the Republican National Committee.

    Drop in a bucket compared to the billions he has pissed away .

    The Obama Campaign never reported the thousands of hours of free campaign commercials it got from the media poorly disguised as "news", either.
