2008 Campaign Contributions

Over at the Bellman, DR was wondering how Obama's recent fundraiser was able to charge $28,500 per plate when the elections laws limit individuals to $2300 donations per year to a candidate.

I copied this chart from the FEC's 2008 Congressional Candidate and Campaign Committee's Guide (page 16). I think the cost of the plate goes towards the Democratic National Committee and not to Obama himself.
