Today, President Obama personally became re-involved in his former campaign organization's new incarnation Organizing for Action. On the same day he is scheduled to appear at two DCCC fundraisers in Chicago, the president of the United States sent the following email to OFA's mailing list, signed "Barack":
The link takes recipients to an email sign up page, after which visitors are invited to donate up to $1,000 to Organizing for Action. OFA, a 504(c)(4) non-profit, has cast itself as a non-partisan advocacy group.
Although the president and first lady were both heavily involved in OFA's re-launch shortly after President Obama's inauguration in January, more recently OFA has downplayed the president's role in the continuing mission of the group's effort to support his agenda. Nevertheless, OFA has retained the barackoabam.com website address and @BarackObama Twitter account with its 32 million followers. OFA's new Twitter account, @OFA, has been rather less successful signing up followers. It currently stands at 288,000.
