A federal court in Washington, DC, held today that political appointees appointed by President Obama did interfere with the Department of Justice’s prosecution of the New Black Panther Party. The ruling came as part of a motion by the conservative legal watch dog group Judicial Watch, who had sued the DOJ in federal court to enforce a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for documents pertaining to the the New Black Panthers case. Judicial Watch had secured many previously unavailable documents through their suit against DOJ and were now suing for attorneys’ fees.
Newport Beach City Manager Dave Kiff billed the campaigns of President Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney for police security at their separate fundraisers this year in the city. Now that the Romney campaign paid its bill, the city is left in the awkward position of trying to collect from Obama.
(My Name) -- This isn't hyperbole or exaggeration: If we don't win this election, it will be because we didn't close the spending gap when we could. Because right now we're seeing that voters have a choice between two very different men. And the only way someone like Mitt Romney -- who's asking Americans to put him in charge of their taxes while refusing to come clean about his own, who wants to repeal Obamacare, end Medicare as we know it and give more tax breaks to billionaires who don't need them -- defeats someone like Barack Obama, is if the other side spends us into oblivion. Tomorrow is the most urgent fundraising deadline of this campaign so far. Will you make a donation of $3 or more today to make sure we can keep this close over the last 100 days? It's already starting on TVs and radios in swing states, and it's not going to stop. In the last two weeks of this month, Romney and his allies had an almost 2:1 spending advantage in Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Virginia -- and that could be the election right there. We've got more than 2.4 million grassroots donors building this the right way. But we're running out of time to close the money gap when it really matters. Please donate $3 today, and help make sure our message can get through to as many voters as Mitt Romney's does: https://donate.barackobama.com/July-Deadline Barack and I honestly wish we could thank everyone who contributes to this campaign personally. You're our second family, you know. Thanks, Joe
