Obama Raises Big Bucks From Wall Street, Lawyers and Hollywood

It seems like it was just yesterday that Obama was bashing the “Wall Street fatcats.”

Now he’s taking their money.

Obama Victory Fund is bringing in loads of cash from lawyers, Wall Street and Hollywood.
Open Secrets reported:

The Obama Victory Fund, a joint fund-raising committee that supports both President Barack Obama‘s 2012 re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee, raised a total of $39 million during the first half of 2011.

And according to a new analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics, the Obama Victory Fund has relied on donors on both coasts as well as deep in the heart of Texas.

Additionally, these donors frequently work for the securities and investment industry, the entertainment industry or law firms, the Center’s research indicates. Some top benefactors include the employees of Goldman Sachs, DreamWorks, Comcast and Disney.
