That’s what some people around Washington are wondering following a story last week by veteran reporter Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner that “a national magazine and a national web site are preparing “a blockbuster donor scandal story” and that the White House has been trying to squash the piece.
According to Bedard:
According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.
Bedard said the story could be published Monday.
