Cell phone ban keeps Obama fund-raisers secret Posted by Laura
Remember when Team Obama promised "the most transparent Administration ever"? So what has happened to the open book crowd? We already know that lobbyists circumvent having to sign into the official White House log when they meet with Obama officials by meeting with them in nearby coffee shops. (So I suppose reporters who actually care about identifying who has the ear of the Obama Executive Branch should moonlight as Starbucks' baristas.) Now we discover that the Obama campaign has instituted a "no cell phone" rule at all fund-raisers. What exactly goes on at these cash-producing soirees that they are afraid of revealing to the general public?
