Perhaps the Obama Whitehouse needs to bring in some real fundraising pros...
Singer Bono’s Aids charity is under fire for spending more on its staff’s wages than it does on its own cause.

According to a report in the US the global charity took in £9.6 million in public donations in 2008, the latest year for which US public tax records are available.

A meagre £118,000 was split between three charities – while more than £5 million was spent on executive and employee salaries.

On the Obama fundraiser - less money for the Democratic Party. Bono - not surprised - lots of sanctimonious finger wagging from him and his pals on how to fix the 3rd world. Aid is the biggest problem because of the corruption. Say it ain't so Bono! Cheers. FernStAlbert
