Left wing Common Cause (!) is concerned about the president’s newest access gimmick.

President Obama is reportedly considering giving his biggest fundraisers unprecedented access–in person meetings with the President four times a year for anyone who raised $500,000 or more for his new lobbying group, Organizing For Action.

Most Americans don’t have that kind of money to spend on politics, and that shouldn’t matter. Every citizen deserves to have their voice heard–one person, one vote.

Common Cause believes that nobody should have to pay to be heard. We’re asking Americans: if you had the a chance to meet with the President face-to-face, what would urge him to do to fix our democracy?

It's been obvious right from the start that OFA, being a personal appendage of the President and no part of the government, would be another example of Chicago politics writ large. Not only are the donors anonymous and the amounts donated unreported, but the 'pay to play' angle was automatically built in. What's not to like? That's how it's been done in Chicago forever, and Obama's simply bringing us all up to speed.

Now $500,000 is downright reasonable for four meetings with the head of the Most Transparent Administration Ever, and we can imagine long lines of limousines headed for the White House as the cronies approach to kiss the ring. But will they show up on the White House visitor's log? How will the anonymous donors of the uncounted donations over $500,000 be received anonymously? Through the Netanyahu entrance?

Coda: Common Cause has always claimed to be concerned with Good Government. Pity we didn't hear their opinions on Chicago politics BEFORE the 2008 elections.
