Little sunlight as Obama raises super PAC dollars

In this July 23, 2014, photo, President Barack Obama walks with senior adviser Valerie Jarrett as he leaves a fundraising event in Los Altos Hills, Calif. When Obama attended the fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, a party committee that must adhere to strict contribution limits, officials released the number of guests attending and how much they paid. For years Obama railed against the surge of unlimited spending flowing into American political campaigns, arguing that average voters were being shut out of a secretive system that lets special interests bankroll elections. Now as Obama enthusiastically raises money for Democratic super PACs, he’s embracing some of the same secretive elements of that system, drawing charges of hypocrisy from good-governance advocates who say the public deserves to know what Obama’s saying and whom he’s saying it to when donors pay for a few minutes with the president.(AP Photo)
