Campaign Contributions From Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac for Senator Barack Obama-Truth!
Summary of the eRumor:
An eRumor called the "Barack Obama's Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac Connection" claiming that Senator Barack Obama ranked the number two spot in campaign contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
John Gibson of Fox News wrote an article by this title on September 16, 2008, quoting sources from the Center for Responsive Politics. In it, Gibson stated that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had used "huge lobbying budgets and political contributions to keep regulators off their backs." According to the article, "The top three U.S. senators getting big Fannie and Freddie political bucks were Democrats and No. 2 is Sen. Barack Obama."
I listen to Gibson all the time. He's awesome. Not surprised, I knew of this a long time ago because John speaks of it probably every other week on talk radio. Fannie and Freddie have been left out of the reform bills.
