    Code Pink 'Bundles' for Barack
    by Catherine Moy


    The co-founder of the radical anti-war group Code Pink has “bundled” more than $50,000 for Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, and pro-troops groups are demanding that he return the money.

    Jodie Evans, a Code Pink leader, gathered at least $50,000 from friends and associates and donated it to Obama’s presidential campaign, according to information compiled by the nonpartisan watchdog group, Public Citizen.

    Evans and her son, a student who lives at her Southern California address, each also gave the maximum individual allowable donation of $2,300 to Obama’s campaign.

    The donations have raised questions about Obama’s association with the more radical elements of his base. Code Pink has harassed, vandalized and impeded military recruiters across the United States in a campaign it calls “counter-recruitment.” The group also gave $600,000 to the families of Iraqi terrorists in Fallujah, whom it called “insurgents” fighting for their homes.

    Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission, Move America Forward,
    Military Families Voice of Victory, The Band of Mothers and FreeRepublic.com, issued a statement this week saying Obama should cut ties to his radical bundler.

    Obam apparently has lied yet again. He has said on numerous occasions that he receives no funding form special interest groups.

    If he keeps the money, he will send a message of disdain for our military that would be hard for them to miss.

    Yeah, who cares how you get it, huh? Why not get a couple of your liberal buddies and rob a bank to fund his campaign, or rob people on the streets...afterall, more money equals more votes!

    I was just stating a fact which works for both sides of the aisle.

    Isn't "bundling" illegal?

    Answering my own question:

    No , just an unethical way around personal contribution limitations.

    Do you have any proof, or is this just wishful thinking on your part.

    I heard a reporter ask a soldier in Iraq who he supported for president, and he stated that he supported Obama. So there are some in the military who have the sense to support the best candidate which is Obama! :applause:

    I guess I should reconsider, after all, the republicans would never do anything unethical, would they? :BangHead:

    I would think starting an unjust war which results in the deaths of thousands of American as well as Iraqi deaths would qualify as unethical, what about you?

    Yup. And if you approach it honestly, you hold both parties responsible, equally.

    I understand. I have no illusions concerning politics, neither the republicans or the democrats operate Sunday Schools, they are politicians. I feel however that in this election, Obama is the best candidate for the job.

    I think Dragonfly is being honest. Few others are.
