Guy Under Federal Investigation Gave Obama $28,500 At Fancy Dinner

Those Napkins Aren't Free Y'Know

Michael Rubin, who forced Obama's Commerce Secretary into resignation due to alleged "pay-2-play" corruption, seems to have gotten around quite a bit in elite Dem soirees. From ABC (by way of Hot Air):
In late September, Rubin attended an exclusive Los Angeles fundraiser for Obama, held at the Beverly Hills' Greystone Mansion. Attendees gave tens of thousands of dollars which the campaign split between its own coffers, the Democratic National Committee and state-level campaign groups supporting Obama and Democratic candidates. The technique helps campaigns take in from individuals far more than the $2,300 maximum they are allowed to give to a single campaign fund.Rubin's money went to a joint Obama-DNC fund ($28,500), the DNC itself ($26,200), and to the Obama campaign ($2,300), according to the database of campaign donations at OpenSecrets.Org. News of the federal investigation into Rubin's New Mexico dealings had broken less than three weeks earlier.
Seeing how Obama did not refuse campaign cash from a bundler who openly called for the death of U.S. troops in Iraq, the bar is already set pretty low. Consider this a non-issue, let's move it along people.
