Obama sells access to White House staff and the White House itself for campaign contributions

The Washington Times has this:

During his first nine months in office, President Obama has quietly rewarded scores of top Democratic donors with VIP access to the White House, private briefings with administration advisers and invitations to important speeches and town-hall meetings.

High-dollar fundraisers have been promised access to senior White House officials in exchange for pledges to donate $30,400 personally or to bundle $300,000 in contributions ahead of the 2010 midterm elections, according to internal Democratic National Committee documents obtained by The Washington Times. . . .

Didn't this type of behavior generate a lot of news coverage when it happened under Clinton? For some reason, I don't think that this will get much coverage now.

Is the White House movie theater the new Lincoln Bedroom?
It turns out that the White House bowling alley is the new Lincoln Bedroom . . .
