White House: No “Set Price” For Donor Access, But Yeah, Donors Still Get Access

- March 4, 2013

 

 

 

SHOT: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney Says There’s No “Set Price” For Donor Access To Obama, But Donors Will Get Access. CARNEY: “Any notion that there’s a set price for a meeting with the President is just wrong. As you know Organizing for Action was set up to promote the president’s public policy agenda. Therefore, as anyone would expect, the president would likely meet with their representatives to discuss his agenda. But, again, any notion that there’s a price for meeting with the president is simply wrong.” (White House Press Briefing, 3/4/13)

CHASER: The New York Times Editorial: OFA’s “National Advisory Board” For Donors Who Raise At Least $500,000 “Is Nothing More Than A Fancy Way Of Setting A Price For Access.” “The organization plans to raise $50 million, Nicholas Confessore of The Times recently reported, at least half of which will come from donors pressured to bring in $500,000 or more. Give or raise that much and you get to be on the group’s ‘national advisory board,’ which will hold quarterly meetings with the president. That is nothing more than a fancy way of setting a price for access to Mr. Obama.” (Editorial, “The White House Joins The Cash Grab,” The New York Times, 3/2/13)
