The father of a White House development colleague associated with the Secret Service prostitution outrage was discounted a strong Obama fight gift, records show, around the same time extra insights about that conceivable connection were made open.
The $20,000 gift was made by Leslie Dach – whose child Jonathan has been connected to the outrage – on Sept. 19, 2012, to the Obama Victory Fund.

One day after that, the lead government agent into the Colombia prostitution outrage said surprisingly that White House staff may have been included in the occurrence.
On Sept. 24, 2012, crusade account records demonstrate, the Obama Victory Fund furnished a proportional payback gift to Leslie Dach.
The chain of occasions may be adventitious, yet by the by brings up issues about Dach’s communications with both the Obama organization and Democratic battle authorities.
