      but it wasn't to me, so I erred on the side of caution.

      Here's the article that seemed to confirm my point of view: Supreme Court upholds ban on foreign contributions regarding two Canadian citizens who contributed indirectly to the Obama campaign.

      Each wanted to be involved in upcoming U.S. elections—Bluman by printing pro-Obama flyers and handing them out in Central Park; Steinman by giving money to the Club for Growth to aid in its independent expenditures on behalf of candidates. (Each suggested to the court below that s/he wanted to make direct candidate contributions as well, but this claim was not pressed in their Supreme Court pleading.)

      From time to time DailyKos advocates on behalf of Democratic candidates and causes and seeks financial support. You might understand my confusion because the site employs Chris Bowers as a "Campaign Director" and recently sought support for fighting "Citizens United". (How ironic!)

      Thanks for the clarification. There were a couple of people I would have liked to have supported with the gift.
