This is a screen grab taken from President Obama's Official Web Site. There many questions.
Is it legal during a campaign to raffle a dinner with the candidate? Is it a legitimate campaign expense to fly the winner to Washington? Is it a legitimate expense to pay for winner's hotel accommodations?
Who paid for the drinks? Are the drinks booze? Whose papers are on the table" What do they say?  Why are there bread plates and no bread or butter? Why is there salt and no pepper?  What’ are they laughing about? Who made the joke? Who are these people? Are they democrats? Have they already won a dinner with the President? Where are their dinner napkins? Why do they have their elbows on the table?
