James Carter: Person Who Recorded ‘47 Percent’ Video Wasn’t A High-Dollar Donor
Democratic opposition researcher James Carter on Thursday said the individual who recorded Mitt Romney making his infamous “47 percent” remarks at a Florida fundraiser was not a high-dollar donor.
It was Carter who unearthed the footage online during last year’s campaign, prompting him to reach out to the videographer before bringing the clips to the attention of David Corn of Mother Jones. Eschewing specific details, Carter told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that the person — referred to by Carter as “Anne Onymous” — did not pay to be in attendance at the fundraiser, held in May in Boca Raton, Fla.
“Well, I can say that it wasn’t one of the people who had paid $50,000 to be there,” Carter said. “But I’m not going to say anything more than that.”
Carter spoke to TPM last week about meeting President Barack Obama for the first time at an event in Decatur, Ga. He said the President thanked him several times before they posed for a picture together. Carter’s cousin, a state senator in Georgia, alerted Obama of his role in the “47 percent” video.

2. Yes...the person who made the video has never been revealed
You dreamed it. But it was a good looking bartender in your dream, at least, I hope.
