Obama Group Fires Fundraiser Who Diverted Gift

Organizing for Action, a political nonprofit set up last year to promote President Obama's policies, confirmed to NBC News that it fired one of its fundraisers and returned a $100,000 check she collected from a New Jersey doctor seeking a presidential pardon for Medicare fraud.

The fundraiser "also took steps that could have kept the doctor's cash secret, returning the check and asking the donor to write a new one to another political nonprofit... That group -- unlike OFA -- does not have a policy of voluntarily disclosing its donors."
