Obama Campaign Refunding Money Donated by Federal Lobbyists

Obama Campaign Refunding Money Donated by Federal Lobbyists
President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is refunding the donations of five registered federal lobbyists who gave to the committee last year, OpenSecrets Blog has learned. Some of these refunds were triggered after OpenSecrets Blog brought the contributions to the campaign's attention.

The Obama campaign has pledged to refuse contributions from lobbyists, continuing a policy it set during the 2008 campaign.

Research by the Center for Responsive Politics indicates the Obama campaign accepted a total of $2,250 from five federally registered lobbyists between April and September. The campaign collected an additional $4,500 from three individuals who registered as federal lobbyists shortly after making contributions.

Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt told OpenSecrets Blog that refunds would be issued to all individuals who were registered lobbyists.
