According to another article, the bulk of the fine was levied on the DNC rather than the Obama campaign.

ZAZ: According to another article, the bulk of the fine was levied on the DNC rather than the Obama campaign.


The piece at Politico says the Obama campaign paid $230k, which leaves $145k from the DNC. That would seem to be a large chunk, but not the bulk.

Again from Politico, "the major sticking point for the FEC appeared to be a series of missing 48-hour notices"; making the foremost difference that Obama's campaign was fined over non-timely disclosure, while Rove is being excoriated over lack of disclosure.

I think the first story I read had 735 instead of 375 in the headline. Or my brain transposed the digits. The story out there now has the figures you gave.

Politics in general derive from fruits in general.

But sometimes the rule is you have to disclose if you have fruit. Like if you're going through customs, or if the fruit is proverbial referring to political donors. If you're really defending this after it's been determined to be illegal it only makes you look foolish.

Subby, can we finally move on? The joke headline should be that Paul Ryan is immediately President now.

The fines are against the 2008 campaign. Ryan wasn't even a twinkle in Romney's eye then.
