I agree, this case is 5 yrs old, politically motivated and blown way out of proportion.

Obama has spent tens of millions of taxpayers money and resources to attend over 100 recent fundraising events and no one cares. This case is basically over a 20k difference in private funds and they are trying to make it a felony case, give me.a break. Case dismissed. ;)
