In today's email blast from the Obama campaign Michelle is once again selling a personal encounter with the President for campaign donations; the legality of which should be given more attention than it's been given.
Here's the email...
For the first 10 years of our marriage, Barack and I lived in an apartment in my hometown of Chicago.
The winters there can be pretty harsh, but no matter how snowy or icy it got, Barack would head out into the cold -- shovel in hand -- to dig my car out before I went to work.
In all our years of marriage, he's always looked out for me. Now, I see that same commitment every day to you and to this country.
The only way we'll win this election is if we can rely on one another like that, all the way to November 6th. Barack is working hard, but he can't do this alone -- he needs your help.
Make a donation today to build this campaign -- when you do, you'll be automatically entered to join Barack and me for a casual dinner:
Your flight, your meal, your accommodations -- that's all taken care of. Just bring yourself and a guest, and get ready to enjoy a good meal together.
Well, there's no doubt in our minds Obama's been shoveling something, the color of which is not white.
