  1. "President Barack Obama's campaign has returned some $70,000 in contributions made by embattled MF Global chief Jon Corzine and his wife, a campaign official said on Friday."

    "As of early last month, the former Goldman Sachs chief had raised donations of at least $500,000 for Obama's 2012 effort."


    At the expense of being an ignoramus, why in the heck would Obama return the money?

    Personally, I'd let Obama keep the money in exchange for a "comment".

    What is the statment Obama's campaign trying to make? Corzine is not charged with a crime not only that Corzine testified before Congress that "Hey, shit happens".

    Here's your 70k, thanks for the 430k but (sigh) we spent that already. Is Obama exonerated?
