FEC:Romney Campaign Quietly Donated $90K To Red Cross For Sandy Relief Efforts

FEC Filings Show Romney Campaign Quietly Donated $90K To Red Cross For Sandy Relief Efforts, Never Publicized

Mitt Romney’s campaign donated nearly $90,000 to the Red Cross in the weeks after the Republican presidential nominee’s electoral defeat, filings with the Federal Election Commission showed Sunday.

The donation was made on Nov. 30, weeks after Election Day, and not publicized by the campaign.

Romney’s presidential effort was disrupted by the landfall of Hurricane Sandy just days before voters headed to the polls. The storm, which battered New York and New Jersey, pulled President Obama and Romney temporarily off the campaign trail.

Romney then converted scheduled campaign rallies into “storm relief” efforts in key swing states, asking supporters to bring donations and supplies. Campaign workers helped pack and ship the disaster relief supplies to areas in need.


No one was really a big Romney fan but I post this because he got a bad rap from the media. The media were orgasmic showing Obama in his fake flight jacket and they reported Romney didn't do anything and faked helping.

Romney would have made a way better president than Obama and everyone knows Obama bussed everyone in and cheated for the win. I just thought Romney deserves to have the record set straight. They are all dirty politicians but in the end Romney is a far better man than Obama.

Should read: Romney Campaign used donor money in $90k donation.

Well, no. Once it is donated, it is the Romney Campaign's money, so the title is correct.

The "storm relief" efforts included a Romney event with country music artist Randy Owen and race car driver Richard Petty in Ohio; in Wisconsin, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) visited a series of campaign offices to thank campaign staff for their relief efforts.

The Romney campaign also said that Ann and Mitt Romney had made a personal donation to the Red Cross, although it did not disclose the amount.

As you can see from reading the comments in this thread, people seem to believe it's Romney's money.
