From that article:

Quote:
while Obama actually refunded more than $179,000 in individual contributions in his first two years.


Cilliza almost implies as if there was something virtuous about those refunds...

Perhaps those refunds had something to do with this:

Quote:
Obama for America was also fined for "untimely resolution of excessive contributions," according to the conciliation agreement, FEC says. The campaign accepted more than $1.3 million in contributions that came from donors who had already given $46,000—the maximum allowed by FEC rules. The campaign eventually refunded the excess cash but did not do so within the 60-day window allotted for resolving such cases, FEC said.


And that perhaps explains why BARACK OBAMA'S presidential campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating federal disclosure laws, Politico reports.

Michael Avenatti's name has been tossed around (by some, and IIRC by Avenatti himself) as the Democratic candidate for President in 2020.

That might not be looking so good at the moment:

    ---Michael Avenatti was fined $4.85 million on Monday for failing to pay a former colleague at his California law firm.
    ---Avenatti, the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, didn't fight back in court against the charges.
    ---This comes on the same day that Avenatti's firm was evicted from its Orange County offices for falling four months behind on rent.

Why Michael Avenatti Thinks Only a White Man Can Beat Trump

By MOLLY BALL October 25, 2018

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer and possible presidential candidate, caused a stir with his contention that there’s only one type of candidate who can beat President Trump. In an interview with TIME published Thursday, Avenatti said the Democrats’ 2020 nominee “better be a white male,” because society affords more credibility to white men than it does others.

Though the statement has struck many as inflammatory, it represents a real, if usually private, debate within the Democratic Party—one that is likely to recur as the next presidential election approaches. Avenatti, who once worked as a researcher on political campaigns, clarified his position on Thursday:

Here’s what Avenatti told TIME in an interview on June 25 in New York City, before he began publicly considering a presidential run:

Is there anybody that you like in the Democratic political class? Or do you think [the 2020 nominee] should be someone from outside politics?

I think it better be a white male.

Really?

100%. And I don’t say that because I want it to have to be a white male. I say that because of just the realities of the situation. I think if the Democrats nominate anyone other than a white male at the top of the ticket, they’re gonna lose the election. I’d be willing to bet anything. I feel highly confident in that. And it shouldn’t be that way for this election–

But just because the electorate is too racist and sexist?

Because of where the electorate lines up and where Trump’s strengths lie. And I think if you nominate–

So Obama only won because of who he was running against? But a Trump who activates people’s racism and sexism —

No, I think Obama could have won against a lot of people. But I think this is a very unique situation. I think Donald Trump is a very unique candidate. And I think if you run anyone other than a white male against him in 2020 — and I think a lot of people in the party agree with me on this, and I think a lot of people disagree with me — I think you are begging for a repeat of 2016. That’s what I believe. Firmly. I firmly believe that. Look. If Joe Biden would have run in 2016, if Beau, his son, had not tragically died, we wouldn’t be sitting here right now. We wouldn’t be sitting here because I would have no case against Donald Trump.

You don’t think he’d have been able to demonize Biden the way he did Hillary?

No. No. And look, here’s what’s unfortunate. It’s very difficult for a woman to run against Donald Trump. Women face a very, very difficult time when they run for higher elected office unfortunately, especially against a guy like Donald Trump. Okay? If they don’t hit hard enough, they’re soft, right? And if they hit back with the same force as a man, they’re classified as a bitch, right? Which is entirely unfair to women. And that’s a very fine line for a woman to walk. And it’s a line that a man doesn’t have to walk. And, again, that’s not right. It shouldn’t be that way. But it’s a very, very difficult walk.

So I do think it is a critical mistake for anyone other than a white male to lead the top of the ticket in 2020. And I wish I didn’t have to say that. I wish it was different. But it’s not, in my view. That’s just my view. I might be wrong about this.

Avenatti is a total dick.

Hoping he ends up in prison for his performance during the Kavanaugh confirmation.

Sen. Grassley referred Avenatti to the Department of Justice for investigation:

I'm betting he isn't even an actual dick. More like an enlarged clitoris . . . A flat broke and soon to be imprisoned . . .

The weird thing is, for some reason, folks see this guy as a strong contender for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 2020.

I can see it now. When Trump is rallying the deplorables and says "Avenatti" the crowd will start chanting "Lock him up! Lock him up!" :lol:

Actually, Avenatti sounds like a plural anatomical part...maybe the piss flaps.
