Obama took millions from lobbyists according to the NY Slimes. At least 15 of Mr. Obama’s “bundlers” — supporters who contribute their own money to his campaign and solicit it from others — are involved in lobbying for Washington consulting shops or private companies. They have raised more than $5 million so far for the campaign.
Because the bundlers are not registered as lobbyists with the Senate, the Obama campaign has managed to avoid running afoul of its self-imposed ban on taking money from lobbyists.
His own fundraising site lies: – “Will you donate $5 or more and promise to match someone’s first donation to the campaign today? Part of the reason we send you all these emails is that we don’t accept any money from special-interest groups or Washington lobbyists.”
