Obama Donor Lists too Large for FEC to Process


www.politico.com

The record-shattering fundraising by Democratic presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton has reshaped the financing of presidential elections and generated breathless coverage and analysis of the otherwise arcane area of campaign finance.

Yet it’s had another consequence that has gone all but unnoticed. The campaign finance reports filed by Obama and Clinton have grown so massive that they’ve strained the capacity of the Federal Election Commission, good government groups, the media and even software applications to process and make sense of the data.

A milestone of sorts was reached earlier this year, when Obama, the Illinois senator whose revolutionary online fundraising has overwhelmed Clinton, filed an electronic fundraising report so large it could not be processed by popular basic spreadsheet applications like Microsoft Excel 2003 and Lotus 1-2-3.

Those programs can’t download data files with more than 65,536 rows or 256 columns.

After awhile ya have to almost start feeling sorry for Hillary... Here is this skinny upstart taking HER nomination cakewalk away from her and now she has to struggle along with $31+million in the red (just how do you do that?) and he has so many donors they can't list them all.

She must be so mad she could spit.

I personally think that in time as the money is tracked it will be found that a cert en portion of it is coming from less then reputable sources.

Doesn't it always?

Still his online fundraising is amazing and most of the people contributing are average Joe's.

Why anyone would waste a nickel on this is beyond me.

I'm pretty sure the whole system is corrupt and I hope no poor souls spent money on any candidate that could have been spent on necessities.
