Obama won’t release details on corporate donations to inauguration

The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC), effectively an extension of President Obama’s campaign, has taken (presumably) millions of dollars in corporate contributions — cash straight from the coffers of corporations like Bank of America, Microsoft, United Therapeutics, Southern Company, FedEx, and AT&T.

Obama’s PIC knows how much these corporations have donated, but the committee refuses to tell the public. Instead, PIC provides a poorly sorted list of all the donors, with no details.
