Complaint of Over Limit Contributions and Request for Audit – Obama for America (C00431445) and Obama Victory Fund (C00451393)

Update to MUR 6142

Dear Sir or Madam:

This is an update to my complaint dated November 20, 2008, pertaining to the Presidential Campaign Funds of Barack Obama. Campaign funds reported show large discrepancies with the totals and there are numerous questionable transactions involving transfers of funds listed as donations and not as transfers.

As I understand it, the total funds available for review are basically made up of individual donations, contributed directly and through transfer, less refunds. This amounts to $495 million in disclosed transactions (Table I). However, the total amount reported for the campaign is approximately $740 million. This implies that $245 million comes from nondisclosed transactions. That is 33% of his total. Are we to believe that this came from donors that gave no more than $200 each? That has to be several million donors in addition to the ones he has disclosed.

There are also questions about the use of donations in place of transfers. As of the post-general report, the Obama for America fund donated over $33 million to various state DNCs (Table II) but lists no transfers out. The Obama for America fund also donated $500,000 each to the Democratic Congressional and Senate Campaign Funds. It also donated $6 million to the DNC and none are listed as transfers. Why would these funds not be listed as transfers?

In another questionable transaction, Obama for America lists a $10 million donation, transferred from the Obama Victory Fund, as a lump sum in the name of the Obama Victory Fund (Washington DC) dated 10/16/2008. All other transfers from the Obama Victory Fund appear to be transferred in the donors name to count toward their limit. This $10 million was not. What is source of this donation? Are these from transactions under the reporting limit? That would mean that $255 million of Obama’s $740 million is from unknown donors.

The American People need an audit of the Obama for America (C00431445) and Obama Victory Fund (C00451393). We are depending on the FEC to assure compliance with fair practices. Please audit the Obama Presidential Campaign Funds. Thank you for your time and consideration.

 

Yours Truly,
