Just illustrates the penchant for this President to violate the law and bend the Constitution to fit his agenda. Peculiar that the print media seems to be the only one carrying the story, and few of those media outlets as well.
The document shows that the Obama campaign failed to disclose the identities of donors responsible for $2 million in contributions in the weeks ahead of the election. The campaign also misreported the dates of $85 million in other contributions.

In addition, the Obama campaign also kept $1.3 million in contributions that were above the legal maximum allowed for a federal campaign, failing to return them within the 60 days required by law.

Crooks don't have to obey the law, so why should Obama?

None of that matters anymore.
Don't you realize it yet ?

They got caught, they paid the fine.
Doesn't matter, he won.

Having trouble reading?

Why not address your leader's criminal activity instead of trying to change the subject?

Typical deflection for the Criminal-in-Chief.

A $375,000 fine is chump change to them.

I still think that we (taxpayers) should pay for the election. No private donations or campaign fund raising allowed. Each candidate gets..........whatever amount of money..........$300 million a piece...........$400 million a piece. Do whatever you want with it. Spend it as you see fit. But when it's gone it's gone.

It'll never happen. But I think that's the way it should be. We pay for it.

"The media just ignore it..."

Would you be so kind as to tell us the source at your link?

"Chump change" is correct. Why worry about breaking the campaign laws when the campaign knows whatever the FED fine, it will only be a miniscule amount when compared to the $750 million raised.

Additionally, Obama's campaing knew that even if there were an investigation it would be years coming.

"Do whatever it takes"...and worry about getting caught after the election has been over for four years.
