The California GOP sent out a press release this afternoon announcing that they filed a complaint with the FEC  over Barack Obama's visit to see his dying grandmother.  The GOP expressed concern that Obama may have misused campaign funds to pay travel costs for the visit.  The Obama campaign says that the travel was vetted by lawyers in advance and that the travel was allowable under federal law.

Polichicks, this is sad news... 

Barack Obama's beloved grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, died early this morning in Hawaii.  Obama learned of the news while campaigning in Florida.

Obama once described Dunham, who was affectionately known as Toot, as "the one who put off buying a new car or a new dress for herself so that I could have a better life." He added, "She poured everything she had into me."
