Did Romney Mislead About Fund Raising Success?
On May 16th, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign announced that he had raised more than $10 million in one day. Facts are tricky things and according to the official FEC report filed by his campaign, he raised only $2.4 million on that day.
Mitt Romney is not known for his honesty, full-on trustworthiness or much of anything else when it comes to relaying facts, but why lie about this?
An important thing to note is that the FEC filing that lists the roughly $10.2 million dollars only accounts for those donations over $200.00. Did Mitt pull in over $7 million in small donations? Not likely. When examining his quarterly filing states that he only pulled in $18 million for the entirety of Q2? In one day he garnered more than half of his entire stash? His fund-raising machine would have had to implode to have numbers that bad after three months if he had recorded $10 million in a single day.
Mitt Romney is a one-man political machine and is more of the same Washington insider, spineless, populist propagandist that we have had to live with in recent decades. This is just proof that he will say or do anything to get elected. Is that who we really need?
