Pro-Romney fundraising group raises $12 million
An independent fundraising group supporting former Republican Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s presidential bid has raised $12 million so far this year.
Restore Our Future announced its latest fundraising figures Tuesday. The group, founded by several strategists who worked for Mr. Romney during his 2008 campaign, is expected to be one of many groups helping Republicans try to defeat President Obama next year.
‘Commy’ message makes way onto Obama 2012 website
A message inviting supporters of President Obama to nonexistent events hosted by “Commy Obama” made its way onto the president’s campaign website, but was removed Tuesday, the campaign said.
The material was posted on a section of the site where users can generate their own content, and made its way past monitors.
“The site was not hacked. These are user-generated sites for supporters - we monitor them for inappropriate content, but aren’t able to catch everything right away,” said Ben LaBolt, spokesman for Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.
The fake material invited users to events scheduled for noon in Washington, the Washington Examiner reported. It said the 430-word message listed “Rules of Politics,” including “Politicians and other public servants lie.”
The report came a day after hackers took control of a FoxNews.com Twitter account Monday and sent six false tweets saying Mr. Obama had been fatally shot, prompting an investigation by the Secret Service.
