Dubious donations: A case study

I first wrote about Barack Obama’s “Dubious donations” for the New York Post just before the 2008 election. We returned to the subject earlier this month in a series of posts upon the publication of the Government Accountability Institute report documenting this fact: Same as it ever was.

Today the New York Post arrives on the scene at just about the same point in the campaign that I did four years ago with an exclusive report that provides a case study:

from 2008: Obama Turns Blind Eye to Credit Card Donation Fraud

What do Bart Simpson, Family Guy, Daffy Duck, King Kong, O.J. Simpson and Raela Odinga have in common?

All are celebrities; and with the exception of Odinga and O.J. Simpson, they also are fictional characters. And yet, all of them gave money earlier this month to the campaign of Barack Obama, without any apparent effort by the campaign to screen them out as suspect donors.

The Obama fundraising machine may owe its sensational success in part to a relaxation of standard online merchant security practices, which has allowed illegal donations from foreign donors and from unknown individuals using anonymous "gift" cards, industry analysts and a confidential informant tell Newsmax.

**Fictitious Donors Found in Obama Finance Records**

Last December, someone using the name "Test Person", from "Some Place, UT", made a series of contributions, the largest being $764, to Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign totaling $2,410.07.

Someone identifying himself as "Jockim Alberton", from 1581 Leroy Avenue in Wilmington, Del., began giving to Mr. Obama last November, contributing $10 and $25 at a time for a total of $445 through the end of February.

The only problem? There is no Leroy Avenue in Wilmington. And Jockim Alberton, who listed his employer and occupation as "Fdsa Fdsa", does not show up in a search of public records.

It's simple. Demand of the Dems what they demand of the Reps. Show me yours first if you're so concerned about 'transparency' and 'openness' and then I'll show you mine. Lead by example.

How about, create a panel to investigate "anonymous donations" to "ALL" candidates in the 2008 Presidential election. Report the findings around October 25, 2012.

This has been nothing new. He has done it for years, taking foreign donations.

It shuld have been investigated in 2008 after his election, but a lack on intestinal fortitude on the part of Republicans frightened of being called racists prevented it from happening.Here we are 4 years into an Obama Presidency and we have no idea how he went to college , how he gets away with a Connecticut Social security number, what happened to his draft card, or even what hospital he was born in. He has still not been properly vetted, and his finances have never been checked. Yet the gall of the SOB to call for Romney’s IRS forms.
