Fundraising sources for Obama

October 5, 2008

Unlike John McCain and others, I am not all that interested in limiting the amount of money that individuals may contribute to political campaigns and the ways in which they may demonstrate their support. However, I am in favor of transparency in political donations, which makes this story about the Obama campaign’s lack of disclosure somewhat disappointing. I understand that Obama has attracted so much money from so many sources that it would be an almost impossible task to monitor them all, but the least the campaign could do is release the complete donor list so that contributions like those of Mr. Good Will and Mr. Doodad Pro can be identified and returned if appropriate.
