This is a PR Newswire put out by the RNC just today-
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Republican National
Committee (RNC) today filed a supplement to its complaint with the Federal
Election Commission (FEC) against the Obama for America campaign addressing
its acceptance of foreign national and excessive contributions, donations
from unknown sources, and demonstrated lack of oversight or concern for
compliance with the law. The complaint demonstrates that the Obama campaign
has failed to comply with federal campaign finance law in its fundraising.
RNC Chief Counsel Sean Cairncross released the following statement today
concerning the supplement to the complaint:
"Based on numerous press accounts that have come to light since our
initial filing in early October, it is clear that the Obama for America
campaign is operating outside of the law. The complete and total lack of
any control mechanisms within the Obama campaign's fundraising operation
has undermined any confidence in their ability to curtail excessive,
foreign, and fraudulent contributions and demands immediate attention from
the Federal Election Commission (FEC)."
Paid for by the Republican National Committee.
Not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
