President Barack Obama and the DNC plan to return $71,600 donated by disgraced former MF Global head Jon Corzine and his wife, a source confirmed to POLITICO.

The money was split between the DNC Victory Fund and the reelection effort.

But Corzine was not just a donor but also a bundler, including from other MF Global employees.

The source said the other donations from employees will be looked at case by case and, if the facts warrant it, returned.

uh huh, let's see the cancelled check

Why, that 71K would be enough to cover moochelles room service bill on a 7 day vacay- no way she will let Barry give that money back to some rich white guys

I can’t believe he gave only that amount. They probably redirected the rest of it so that it did not look like it was coming from Corzine.

So like if you rob a bank, and they catch you, can you just give the money back and it;s okay?

For months the Drivebys did their dirty best 24/7 to connect Ken Lay with Bush 43 and every other republican.

As far as the same Drivebys are concerned, the Rat Governor, Rat Senator, Rat Bundler, Rat Embezzler Corzine, the economic guru of Plugs Biden and Hussein . . .

This is the $71,600 we know about. What about the money that was cheated from other people we do not know about?

This is so that the pardon coming later on won’t look like it was paid for.

What happened to the $1,200,000,000,000 ($1.2 trillion) that Corzine stole from MF Gobal investors, Barry? This $71,600 isn't even a blip on the radar screen. Bernie Madoff is a piker compared to Jon Corzine.

Anyone have a handle on what Obama has cost the American taxpayer since his first day in office? . . . Broken down, . . government expenses, czars, deficit, price of gas, almost unmeasurable amount of job loss, pain and suffering, expenses of Obama himself, Michelle, travel, etc. . .

Then let's compare it to Bush. . Let's see, for starters his Christmas vacation = $4,135,038, then . . . would be a major research project but might come in handy prior to November 6, 2012.

Merry Christmas everyone and let's hope we have a Happy New Year!

So Obama is now going after the P L A money like the Clintons when they sold military and business secrets for donations and hush money.
