The Obama Foundation is Accepting Millions in Corporate Donations, Even Though the President Spent Years Criticizing Them

He wants to get some of the dirty Clinton-type cash:

Former President Barack Obama once called Wall Street bankers “fat cats.” Now his organization is accepting donations from them.

A list released Friday by the Obama Foundation, a nonprofit currently working on the presidential library ahead of its debut in Chicago in 2021, detailed recent contributors to the project. Some big names are among them, like John Doerr, who is a venture capitalist; Reid Hoffman, who founded LinkedIn; and Tom Campion, who cofounded Zumiez. Also included are the Microsoft Corporation and Exelon.
