Democratic Party fundraising slumps in August
updated 9/11/2011 12:17:41 AM ET
Both the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and President Barack Obama's re-election campaign were forced to curtail fundraising during the summer because of the negotiations with congressional Republicans over raising the debt limit, which led Obama to cancel fundraisers around the country.
Democratic Party Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who led her first full committee meeting, said the party needs to rally behind Obama's $447 billion jobs plan aimed at jump-starting the economy and hiring, as well as his own re-election prospects.
"There is only one job the Republicans care about ... Barack Obama's," Wasserman Schultz said at the meeting for the committee's top brass in Chicago Saturday.

Prominent Democratic campaign treasurer Kindee Durkee was finally arrested by the FBI this weekend...
Get it right Debbie, “there is only one job Barack Obama cares about, his own”...there fixed it for you.
The fund laundry will reschedule the meetings. The meetings are necessary to provide a fig leaf for transfer of the kicked back stimulus funds into the campaign coffers.
Bingo! Nailed it!
Every time I think of myself belonging to an organisation that would elect Debbie Wasserman to be it’s leader I laugh.
What were they thinking?
She is actually as goofy as that hairdo makes her look.
Need to hire more teachers and government workers.
2010 was the 1st opposition DWS had in an election.
Karen Harrington got a lot of votes (esp for purple gerry-mandered Broward county FL).
I wonder who they’re saving their campaign money for — I bet it’s being spent locally to fight on the retrenched union lines at the state level.
We just got a hold of the FBI complaint against Kinde Durkee, the California accountant who has been a campaign treasurer for hundreds of Democratic campaigns. The feds charged her late last week with mail fraud for allegedly taking campaign funds from accounts she controlled and using them to pay personal and business expenses as well as cover for shortfalls in the accounts of other campaigns.
The victim in this case is alleged to be the campaign of state Assemblyman Joe Solorio, from whose accounts Durkee allegedly misappropriated more than $600,000, some of which ended up in the campaign accounts of Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA). (There is no suggestion in the complaint that the the Sanchez campaign knew of these deposits.)
But the key takeaway from the FBI complaint may be that Durkee admitted, according to the feds, that she has been “misappropriating her clients’ money for years.” So who knows how many other victims there and the amounts of money involved.
Here’s a copy of the complaint.
There I fixed it for you, vile & despicable Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
I’ve been reading Obama is very very behind in his billion dollar quest.
