Clinton:’a lot of voters don’t know about Barack Obama’

Hillary Clinton has made potentially damaging charges about Barack Obama’s Political Action Committee, HopeFund in the most recent round of attacks. Hillary Clinton is alleging Obama used funds to directly influence politicians in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Howard Wolfson, Clinton’s Communications Director, called on Obama to shut down the Hopefund and alledged Obama violated FEC Rules on the CBS’ ‘Face the Nation’ Show on Sunday and stated, “There’s a lot that voters don’t know about Barack Obama,” Wolfson said. “And one thing they don’t know, we found out this week, which is that he has been using and operating a so-called leadership PAC, an apparent contravention of campaign finance laws, taking in money from lobbyists despite the fact that he said he doesn’t take money from lobbyists.”

Barack Obama has responded by saying, “I think that folks from some of the other campaigns are reading the polls and starting to get stressed and issuing a whole range of outlandish accusations,” Obama said in a press conference Sunday in Des Moines, Iowa. “Everything that we’ve done is in exact accordance with the law.”

Analysts are reporting that Hillary Clinton is just banking on the appearance of improprieties to discredit a candidate that has staked his race on a new and ethical kind of politics. Obama has a slight lead in Iowa and is climbing in New Hampshire.
