23. You have a real problem with math, don't you?

You make a big deal about a bunch of lobbyists giving $500 or so donations to total $3,200 for all lobbyists and then try to equate that to what Hillary collects from lobbyists:

Hillary Clinton Leads in Fund-Raising From Lobbyists

they report $2.2 mil as of Feb 1, 2016 so she's way past that now.


Then you whine about the kids Alaska Voter Registration Super PAC that raised $1,400.

Hillary's seven Super PACS
https://www.opensecrets.org/pres16/candidate.php?id=N00000019

have pulled in $62,676,002 ... just a wee bit more than the kids in Alaska



Then you make the bogus claim : "the $23 million in illegal contributions the FEC cited"

that's BS. The letter asked the Sanders campaign to amend their report providing voter details on some of the $23 million where cumulative contributions for the donors exceeded $200.
http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/988/201602110300034988/201602110300034988.pdf

That is NOT "$23 million in illegal contributions"

As the NY Times reported on these kinds of letters "Such glitches are common in political campaigns"

Nothing sinister is going on with the Sanders campaign here.
