Hate Monger Spike Lee A Big Obama Donor

If Obama had any class, he would return the $1.6 million that Spike Lee raised for him. But let's be clear, Spike Lee is doing what Obama wants him to do.
Which is really more important to this President: the tone of the national discourse or cold, hard cash? 

A few days ago, Spike Lee sent what he believed to be George Zimmerman's home address into the midst of a racial firestorm. Should Obama return the $1.6 million he collected at a fundraiser in Lee's home this January to express his disapproval with this decision? You can add this to the question conservatives have been asking for several weeks: should Obama's SuperPAC return the $1million dollars Bill Maher donated in February? 

 Jim Treacher at the Daily Caller recalls a fundraiser President Obama held at the New York home of director Spike Lee in January. The Huffington Post reported on the evening, including the fact that the White House had approached Lee about hosting it:
The filmmaker, who told WPIX that the White House first approached him about the fundraiser, kept an active Twitter commentary during the event.
According to Spike, the event raised $1.6 million for the President's campaign.
