Fundraiser Rufus Gifford Says Goodbye To Millions Of Obama Supporters

Spam king, or pen pal? A lot of people were kind of sad to see him go.

1. This Is Rufus Gifford, President Obama’s Top Fundraiser

He sends a lot of email to the 10-million-plus people on Obama’s email list, asking for money.

2. Here’s The One He Sent Tonight

4. Some People Were Glad To See Him Go

Damn all I can afford to donate is 5$ to barack tell Rufus to leave me alone!
