Unanswered Question re: DonationsSubmitted by DougEFresh on Fri, 11/02/2007 - 13:29
I have asked this question once on this forum and got no substantial reply (http://www.dailypaul.com/node/4573). I also emailed the campaign directly four days ago and have not received a response.
Can anyone explain why donations that are less than $200 are appearing on websites like fec.gov, opensecrets.org, and huffingtonpost.com? When I searched for other Ron Paul supporters in my state, I was surprised to find the names, hometowns, and employers of donors who had given only $100, $50, and $25. How is this possible when on RP's main site it states:
"Federal law requires we report the name, mailing address, occupation, and name of employer for contributions of more than $200.00 per election cycle."
So why is this information publicly available when the donors gave less than $200?
I would very much like to donate on November 5th but will not do so if my information is publicized. I have good reasons for this other than simple privacy.
