If a campaign chose to turn off standard safe-guards on credit card donations that could only encourage illegal donations then shouldn’t there be some scrutiny? Wouldn’t an unbiased Media call for such scrutiny? Instead, Obama likely to escape campaign audit for political reasons.
The Federal Election Commission is unlikely to conduct a potentially embarrassing audit of how Barack Obama raised and spent his presidential campaign’s record-shattering windfall, despite allegations of questionable donations and accounting that had the McCain campaign crying foul.
Adding insult to injury for Republicans: The FEC is obligated to complete a rigorous audit of McCain’s campaign coffers, which will take months, if not years, and cost McCain millions of dollars to defend.
