Liar: ‘We don’t get some of the massive checks that the other side does.’

Obama Fundraising in Switzerland lead by George Clooney in Geneva: Contribution Information: $30,000, Dinner Couple; $20,000 Dinner Individual; $5,000 Photo Reception; $1,000 Guest (a similar event for Obama four years ago brought in $900,000.)

San Francisco:  Tickets go from $5,000 for general admission to $75,00 for “photo reception,” to a stratospheric $50,000 for “table captain” status.

Los Angeles:  70 people will pay $25,000 to dine with the president. And in May 2012 at George Clooney’s home Obama pulled in a record $15 million from a reception for 150 supporters, followed by a smaller dinner for 50 people costing $1,000 per person for the first event, and $20,000 per person (or $30,000 per couple) for the second.

New York:   The elite affair at the opulent, Parisian-styled NoMad Hotel on Broadway and 28th Street is costing donors $40,000 per person, according to the Sunlight Foundation.

The president has held more fundraisers than any other president in history at this point. And he’s raising more from small donors than he did in 2008.

Between rounds of golf, he’s a busy-guy.

Meanwhile on the tax-payers dime: The U.S. Government won’t explain, but a 9 News Now investigation has found $30 million in unreported bonuses for fiscal year 2011 – making the already troubled General Services Administration’s total bonus pool nearly $44 million…

UPDATE

Former New Jersey Governor and Wall-Street $500,000-level bundler Jon Corzine who disappeared more money than Bernie Madoff with the mysterious $2Billion collapse of MF Global yet somehow is not also in jail, would not comment.  Suffice to say that corrupt U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s old law firm used to represent the bankrupt brokerage firm MF Global Holdings…
