Obama’s fund raising

This Telegraph article was headlined about the Obama’s marriage issues in 2000, but what was of most interest is this:

Despite the candidate’s promise of transparency there was plenty of sleight of hand from the Obama camp during the campaign. The greatest fiction was the myth that the campaign’s vast war chest was raised online in $5 and $10 donations from hundreds of thousands of people.

“It wasn’t the Internet,” admitted Penny Pritzker, who headed Mr Obama’s national finance committee. It was in fact, classic old fashioned high dollar contributions from wealthy Americans.

Not a revelation I have seen reported widely.
