Obama uses speech to Newtown to raise campaign funds

According to Politico, top Obama adviser David Axelrod on Monday sent email from the Obama for America campaign, “directing readers to view a video of the president’s speech Sunday about the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.”

“As we reflect on the lives lost last week, we must also, as the president urged, consider how each of us can play a part in making our country worthy of the memory of those little children,” Axelrod wrote.

When the link to the video is clicked, the website opens to not one, but two “donate” buttons – one above the video and another to the right with the campaign logo as seen below.

While the campaign is over, Obama’s campaign committee may still raise and spend money for political purposes.
