Is this even legal? A Raffle for access to President Obama?

This email is making the rounds.  Is it legal for the President to offer a raffle for access?  How about check this out will campaign finance laws and post what you find out

I’ve worked for President Obama for almost five years — but I’ve never actually sat down for dinner with him.

That’s why I’m excited about (and maybe a little jealous of) the opportunity you have to join the President for dinner. He’s going to sit down and swap stories over a meal with four supporters, and you could be one of them.

You should really give this a shot. Donate $10 or more today to be automatically entered for the chance to sit down for dinner with the President:

This isn’t going to be a formal affair or a banquet for hundreds of guests.

It’s just you, three other supporters, and President Obama, sitting down together for an evening among friends.

It’s not often you get to talk to the President one on one about your hopes for the country and your ideas for this campaign. So I hope you’ll put your name in the running.

Donate $10 today, and you’ll be automatically entered for the chance to claim your seat the table:

Good luck,

Albert —

I wanted to say thank you before the midnight deadline passes. And I’m looking forward to thanking four of you in person over dinner sometime soon.

If you haven’t thrown your name in the hat yet, make a donation of $5 or more before midnight tonight — you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to be one of our guests.

More soon,

Barack
