    Same old same old with Obama, this is the same thing his campaign did last election. Divide the money up so it is not reportable. Another crime by the administration of crime.

    Windfall: Obama Raises $181 Million, Only Around 2% of Donations Reportable

    The Obama campaign dropped a bombshell this morning. It announced that, combined with the DNC, the campaign raised a staggering $181 million in September. The windfall is a huge increase over July and August, when the campaign raised around $100 million, although it is slightly down from the $193 million it raised in September 2008. The news should raise eyebrows.

    The campaign said that just over 1.8 million people made donations to the campaign last month. According to the campaign, over 500k of these were brand-new donors, having neither given in 2008 nor 2012. 98% of contributions were under the reporting threshold of $250. Of these, the average contribution was $53.

    Pre-paid, untraceable credit cards provided the vast majority of that money.

    Somebody somewhere is trying to be slick...
