FEC Report: Obama’s Campaign Paid Over 5 Million To Law Firm… To Keep His Records Sealed?
The following is information that was compiled from the official Federal Elections Commission (FEC) website for disbursements from the Obama campaign to Robert Bauer’s law firm of Perkins Coie, which represents Obama in various eligibility and records suits.
Perkins Coie does not appear in the pre-general election filing. You are free to pursue any further information that is of interest. But one would assume that the official FEC website to which the Obama and other campaigns must report their financial activity would be taken by even the most skeptical among us as valid documentation of the reported $1 million to $6 million, or anything in between, figure illegally expended to defend the eligibility suits.
This information is about the legal fees AND RENT(?) only of that one law firm, not the Department of Justice attorneys that have also represented Obama in several courts, court fees, or other related costs.
