Top recipient of BP-related funds = barry
During his time in the Senate and while running for president, Obama received a total of $77,051 from the oil giant and is the top recipient of BP PAC and individual money over the past 20 years, according to financial disclosure records.
British Petroleum HQ’d in London.
And what was barry ragging at the Supreme Court for?
Foreign corporations contributing to campaigns?
BEN LABOLT – the man charged with getting rid of unclean campaign cash…after it’s been discovered by the press:
This claim lacks one thing: credibility. President Obama didn’t accept a dime from corporate PACs or federal lobbyists during his presidential campaign. He raised $750 million from nearly 4 million Americans. And since he became President, he rolled back tax breaks and giveaways for the oil and gas industry, spearheaded a G20 agreement to phase out fossil fuel subsidies, and made the largest investment in American history in clean energy incentives.
Who actually believes that claim after it has been proven a lie?
And note how “federal” was added to lobbyists. Axelrod is a lobbyist and he worked out of his lobbyist office while he ran barry’s campaign. He has since opened an office in Washington.
How long before someone demands the names and amounts of money that barry has had to give back?
In 2009, individuals and PACs associated with BP donated $16K to members of the House Energy and Commerce Committe.
