    It is wrong to pick on private citizens for exercising their rights to support a candidate. The liberal media is trying to scare off future donors by letting people know that the media will run roughshod over them.

    Scare the shit out of them, humiliate them, and do whatever it is they can to hope they will not donate again. Maybe they will start sending severed rotting fish heads too? Ala Rahm Emanuel.

    So then if you made a donation to Obama or any other candidate you think it is fair for the Republican's to name you and then publish any detail they can about you, your family and financial situation? Past arrest records of family members, DUIs, etc? Anything is fair if you donated, right?

    Remind me again who was the President who pardoned Marc Rich after receiving generous donations from Rich's wife?

    It's a three page article which states the donors have had their personal and their families lives made public to embarass them. Strange how Obama can turn on people, one donor Obama is attacking actually voted for Obama and raised a ton of money for Obama when he ran. His money was good for Obama and they did not try to embarass him when he gave to Obama. Strange that! His money was good enough for Obama! I bet that donor won't give to the dems anymore.

    Yes, I know it's a 3-page article, but it doesn't specify all the shit you listed.
