Although Eric Holder, who cannot conceal his visceral contempt for conservatives, heads the U.S. Department of Justice, doing the right thing isn’t high on his list of priorities.
As Barack Obama gears up to use the White House (illegally?) for fundraising purposes, a case in point is the “maxed out” donors scandal.
As I explain in my new book, Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers, former ACORN employee Anita MonCrief testified under oath in 2008 that the Obama campaign gave a list of “maxed out” campaign donors to ACORN’s voter mobilization affiliate Project Vote so it could hit up those donors for more cash. Of course, ACORN’s Project Vote used to employ President Obama as a get-out-the-vote organizer.
According to MonCrief, Obama donors who had already given the legal limit could secretly give more money to the Obama cause by donating to ACORN, which everyone (except the members of ACORN’s useful idiots club) knows only helps Democrats. Obama considered ACORN to be an arm of his campaign. That’s why his campaign paid ACORN affiliate Citizens Services Inc. to do partisan political work.
The Obama campaign disguised its $832,598 payment to Citizens Services Inc., falsely describing it in campaign finance filings as “polling, advance work and staging major events.” In reality, CSI performed get-out-the-vote services. After the subterfuge was uncovered, the Obama campaign claimed it had simply goofed up and filed an amended report with the Federal Election Commission.
This could be a violation of election laws but Attorney General Holder couldn’t care less. Nor could the New York Times, which had the potential game-changer of a story but spiked it just before Election Day.
Michelle Malkin and the fastidious (and ornery) blogger Michael Gaynor have been beating the drum for a proper federal investigation for years now, to no avail.
With his astonishingly brazen track record for lawlessness, don’t hold your breath expecting Holder to do anything about the Obama maxed-out donors scandal.
