Opensecrets.org shows us the Top Contributors to President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign. According to the campaign finance records compiled here, Goldman Sachs donated $994,795.00 to help Obama buy some real estate at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Today, news is breaking that the Wall Street giant is being sued by the SEC for fraud:
As part of the complaint, the SEC alleges that one of the world's largest hedge funds, Paulson & Co., paid Goldman $15 million to structure a product that would allow the fund to take a short position against mortgage-backed securities chosen by Paulson based on the fund's belief that the value of the securities would fall.
The SEC alleges that the shady goings on occurred in April 2007, which was about the time Mr. Obama was laying the groundwork for his 2008 presidential bid. Things that make you go hmmmm.

Extra Point: Oh, Goldman Sachs donated to John McCain's campaign, too. A whopping $230,095.
