"...Lawrence Lessig, a Harvard Law School professor who has been tracking money in the 2012 elections, said he has calculated that 47 individual Americans have given 42 percent of the money in this year's presidential campaign. "We have never had an election, in the last hundred years, that has had this type of money," he said.

That phenomenon has been most evident with a group of $1 million supporters of the Romney campaign called the "Victory Council." While the Romney campaign has kept the identities of his top-level fundraising team a secret, ABC News has been able to track their movements throughout the convention, and has slowly begun to identify them..."

I suppose that you liberals just overlook all the plush job appointments made to Obama's big campaign contributors.

So what? Four years ago BHO raised twice as much as the Republicans - I seriously doubt that was a result of cake sales and lemonade stands. The hypocrisy of you ultra liberals never ceases to dismay me. I suppose since BHO can't run on his dismal record you folks have to dredge up every moot point you can find to distract your weak minded comrades.

Legally unfortunately. So? Call your hero BHO and ask himn to push for campaign finance reform. Maybe he can do something useful for once.

So why is it a bad thing Romney is raising more money than Obama? Sounds like the left is upset because Obamas fund raising is not going as well as it did in 2008, wonder why?

Dems were downright giddy about Obama having so much campaign money in 2008.
