Is Obama using tax money for campaigning?
This would, of course, be illegal. Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks hasn’t gone that far, but does have strong words nonetheless:
“It sure looks suspicious,” FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe told The Daily Caller. “It looks like lobbying and it looks utterly inappropriate.” Because they’re not lawyers, though, Kibbe and FreedomWorks spokesman Adam Brandon won’t comment on whether the Obama White House’s new campaign is legal or illegal.
Brandon said it appears the White House is using taxpayer-funded government resources to play political games.
Brandon told The Daily Caller that FreedomWorks is looking into the legality of the new program. “The White House [should be] about policy, not politics,” Brandon said in a telephone interview. “This is a political move.”
The president do something unethical, extra-constitutional, illegal, venal, or focused solely on his aims, and those of his acolytes? Heavens forfend.
