Obama Campaign Higher-Ups are Livid at an Unidentified “Local Fundraising Consultant”

How did famous blogger Mayhill Fowler get inside that recent controversial Obama event in San Francisco that some people are calling a miracle for Hillary Clinton? From Matier and Ross:

Just how the MP3-wielding Fowler managed to secure an invite to the $1,000 a head fundraiser at the San Francisco home of developer Alex Mehran wasn’t immediately clear – but Obama campaign higher-ups were said to be livid, with fingers pointing at a local fundraising consultant for the slip-up.

Everyone was all smiles in San Francisco at this event last year, anyway

Without getting some more information, it’s hard to say just what went wrong. Perhaps the official invitation to the event holds a clue.

Who is the person that’s being held responsible? Check it out, after the jump.

Update: Is Mayhill referred to as a roach under a sofa here on barackobama.com? You make the call.

Here’s the invite, save for a few x’s thrown in here and there:
