    it's cute how this right wing "news" organization thinks that Obama should release the names of the private citizens who have donated to his campaign.

    speaking as one of those small donors I'd be REALLY pissed off if my name and address were released publically.

    you can go to opensecrets.org and look at each candidates contributions... Obama is 100% reporting, McCain is at 90%

    PAC contributions $1,346,385 1%
    Candidate self-financing $0 0%
    Federal Funds $0 0%
    Other $43,935,187 19%

    Full Disclosure $120,487,193 (85.8%)
    Incomplete $4,251,363 (3.0%)
    No Disclosure $15,639,794 (11.1%)



    Barack Obama:

    Source of Funds
    Individual contributions $426,902,991 94%
    PAC contributions $450 0%
    Candidate self-financing $0 0%
    Federal Funds $0 0%
    Other $27,152,882 6%

    I've given four different times to the Obama campaign, never more than $30.00 at a time.

    my name is Ms. GO FUCK YOURSELF but my friends call me Silence for short :D
