OBAMA CAMPAIGN SCRAMBLES TO KILL ILLEGAL ONLINE FUNDRAISING STORY
Big Government ^ | 8 Oct 2012 | WYNTON HAL

Posted on 10/08/2012 6:13:10 PM PDT by Snuph

Minutes after Newsweek published a story on the threat of illegal foreign and fraudulent online campaign donations late Monday afternoon, the Obama campaign struck back hard with a response smearing one of the article’s authors and offered an anemic defense of its online fundraising operations.

“illegal foreign and fraudulent online campaign donations”

Just like 2008.

We have a coup by an illegal Manchurian Candidate and foreign influence / powers.

Gee whiz, the guy can’t even show a $12 paper LFBC in a courtroom, civilian nor military.

He obviously has something to hide. Probably many things.

Whoa. This stuff is not hard to find out. Obama just may actually be stupid.

Never believe your own press. Especially if it’s always gooey and sticky. No one falls harder than those at the top.

Well, if the fickle Media smells defeat for Obama, doubtful they’ll want to be on the wrong side of a Romney victory. Probably hedging...

The Great Obama Lying Machine grinds into action.

It’s hard to fight the lies, because they can think of them faster than you can knock them down.

Obama Campaign Receiving Illegal Donations from Foreigners

A new report by the Government Accountability Institute shows that President Obama’s donation page lacks basic security to prevent illegal donations from non-citizens. The report also reveals that Democrat donor Robert Roche has ties to an unofficial website designed to drive foreign donors to the Obama’s campaign. Even worse, according to the report, over 47% of Congressional websites don’t have security to prevent illegal donations.

Federal Election Commission (FEC) laws do not require federal candidates to use the same kinds of industry-standard, anti-fraud credit card security measures commonly used when purchasing things online. This oversight creates a dangerous pathway for illegal foreign and fraudulent online contributions to influence U.S. elections.

Seeing Obama losing the election will be fantastic, but seeing Obama and his tribe being loaded onto a prison bus would be orgasmic.

If this can be stuck to Hussein’s butt, he needs to go to jail for a long, long time.

I will print up a headline on a couple thousand notices and have some kids hit the big box store parking lots.

Hopefully someone will get this message on some hiway billboards.

I am sure once he is out of power and the walls start to crumble what we expect he is guilty of will be chump change compared to what they find.

Good point... they did something else that was even handed a few months back too. Strange.

This subject seems to be missing from most news feeds, pressure from Obama already?

The less I hear of it the more I will bring it up.

This is Obamas kryptonite.

Probably hedging...

Rush Limbaugh says that all the polls will start to reflect something closer to reality about two weeks before the election, just to establish a record of accuracy akin to what the election outcome actually is, for business reputation.
