Richardson-linked donor gave to Obama

January 7, 2009


— A prominent businessman caught up in a grand jury probe whose political donations ended any role for New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson in the Obama administration also was a generous contributor in support of the president-elect.

David Rubin gave $26,200 to the Democratic Party on Sept. 19 and $2,300 to Barack Obama’s campaign on Sept. 30, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission. Last February, Rubin gave another $1,000 to Obama’s campaign.

Rubin and his company donated $100,000 in 2003-2004 to the political committees of Richardson. The contributions came both before and after Rubin’s company won a state contract in New Mexico to help finance $1.4 billion for highway and transportation projects, a contract that brought $1.5 million in business for the company, CDR Financial Products.

Just think of all the criminals who donated to Dubya's campaign. You can't do background checks on all of your donors.
