JEB'S PAC busted

The Federal Election Commission has hit Right to Rise USA, the super-PAC that backed Jeb Bush’s 2016 presidential bid, with a record fine for accepting a seven-figure donation from a company owned by Chinese nationals who were in business with Bush’s brother, Neil, according to FEC documents obtained by Mother Jones. It is illegal for foreign nationals to be involved in making donations to political committees.

Neil Bush, who has extensive business dealings in China, solicited the $1.3 million contribution from American Pacific International Capital (APIC), an international investment holding company where Neil is a board member.

2. Shall we revist Obama's CAMPAIGN? The fine? Not a PAC....his campaign....$1.9mil undisclosed

" An FEC audit of Obama for America's 2008 records found the committee failed to disclose millions of dollars in contributions and dragged its feet in refunding millions more in excess contributions.

The resulting fine, one of the largest ever handed down by the FEC, is the result of a failure to disclose or improperly disclosing thousands of contributions to Obama for America during the then-senator's 2008 presidential run,....." https://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2013/01/07/obama-campaign-fined-big-for-hiding-donors-keeping-illegal-donations

5. Irrelevant. Ancient History.

You keep bringing up the past instead of talking about the present.
Obama is served his eight years with distinction, despite being stopped at every turn to keep America great.

16. The Obama Presidency reminded me of the days when Jimmy Carter was in the Oval ...

Both Jimmy Carter and Obama seem to be nice guys but as presidents both were incompetent.
