One thing I will give this SCOAMF of an administration credit for is nobody does irony better then these guys. First there was the decision to hold their convention in a right-to-work state, thereby angering their union bosses. They are still jumping through hoops to appease the red-faced, fist-shaking little trolls in the union halls.
Now comes word that Obama will be giving his concession, er, acceptance speech at Bank of America stadium so he can get more big donors to attend. Oh the 99% must be so happy!
President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is considering moving the final day of the Democratic National Convention to Bank of America Stadium to sell more skyboxes to wealthy donors, three Democrats involved in the fundraising told Bloomberg News.
The 74,000-seat home of the Carolina Panthers also would have room for the convention to sell more floor passes close to the stage. Planners are struggling to meet a $36.6 million fundraising goal, according to the Democrats, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the matter.
The host committee is trying to work around the fundraising restrictions, imposed by Obama, by asking for in-kind contributions from corporations and accepting unlimited funds from nonprofit organizations, such as charitable foundations associated with major corporations.
