Report: Obama Films Campaign Ad In White House, Possibly Violating FEC Laws


obamaNRO’s Jim Geraghty raises the question of whether Barack Obama filmed a video for his reelection campaign in the White House, which may possibly be a violation of federal election laws.

In the video, President Obama promotes a “Dinner With Barack” raffle. To participate in the contest you need to donate at least $5 to the president’s re-election campaign and your name will be raffled off to enjoy a dinner with the President, airfare and accommodations included. In a new web video, Obama announced Vice President Joe Biden will also be attending the dinner.

There is one problem, however. This campaign ad was most likely recorded in the White House, which may have violated FEC campaign finance laws.

Both videos have identical lamps in the background, suggesting both videos were recorded at the same location. President Obama normally records his weekly address at the White House unless he is on the road like last week when he was in Pittsburgh.

  2. This arab/muslim/marxist etc. has no respect for the law (forged birth certificat,started a war in libya without consent from congress etc. )He should be impeached. Period.

  3. Orwell, that’s the best you can do to defend your beloved? I think they thought about that? How do you know it wasn’t an oversight, oh Balanced One? And what conclusion did they come up with after thinking about it? And why?

  4. you published his article from a media outlet that has no credibility. The charge is false. you need to print a retraction. The filming was done in the parts of his residence that are permitted to be used for fundrasing. this is reported in the mainstream news why lie in your media organization to your frum readers? why would you lie to klal yisroel with lies in article like yours.
