Hilary Clinton forced to revise accounts
New revisions put funding on even keel with Barack Obama
Senator Hilary Clinton’s bid to win
the Democratic presidential nomination has been hurt after she was forced to
lower the $26m (£13m) she claimed to have raised in the first three months of
The New York Times reported that her fundraising efforts have been
shrunk by $400,000 (£200,000) because of bounced cheques, donors whose credit
cards were mistakenly charged twice and donations that exceeded the legal limit.
New fundraising accounts show that both her and fellow
Democrat candidate Barack
Obama have raised the same amount – $25.6m each.
