How iWatch News reported this story

The iWatch News investigation of Obama “bundlers” who took jobs or advisory roles with the new administration drew on government databases and records as well as campaign finance data compiled by the public interest group Public Citizen. Public Citizen’s website,, lists the names of these mega donors, their home states and in many cases their employers or business. IWatch reporters mined White House and other federal agency records and databases, including lists of hundreds of federal advisory committees, to determine how many individuals or their spouses whose names appeared on the list of bundlers had received federal appointments. White House visitors’ logs, which in some cases list who a visitor met with and the event attended, were reviewed to determine how often bundlers showed up at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Some bundlers could not be included because of common names and limits in this record keeping system.
