Obama '08 campaign hid millions

A federal audit found that Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign hid millions in contributions, according to the Washington Post.

The audit found that the campaign failed to disclose nearly $2 million in big money donations from Democratic supporters.

The Obama campaign was required to file public disclosures of contributions over $1,000 within two days after they were received in the weeks leading up to the election. The campaign failed to disclose 1,312 contributions totaling $1,972,266 that were transferred from a fund used to raise money with the Democratic National Committee.

The average donation came out to more than $1,500.
