While Republican politicians have had their donations locked down with eVerify, required by law, Obama never saw fit to do this.
This is one way he could get around the federal matching funds and allow himself to collect millions and millions of dollars from around the globe, though this is illegal.
Even the WaPo noticed back in 2008. Of course, they make it sound like "What could Obama do? Everyone wanted to donate to him!" rather than, "This guy's a cheat!"
Faced with a huge influx of donations over the Internet, the campaign has also chosen not to use basic security measures to prevent potentially illegal or anonymous contributions from flowing into its accounts, aides acknowledged. Instead, the campaign is scrutinizing its books for improper donations after the money has been deposited.
The Obama organization said its extensive review has ensured that the campaign has refunded any improper contributions, and noted that Federal Election Commission rules do not require front-end screening of donations.Refunded improper donations?
We think not.
As long as the campaign can get along, cheating until after his reelection bid, what does it hurt him to continue?
Why not just wait until the couple thousand dollar fine is issued 4 years after the campaign has ended?
This cheating allowed Obama to accept donations from such individuals as Nidal Hassan from ?? and "Adolph Hitler" and "Illegal Contributor."
Is all this finally catching up with The One, whose performance was so bad in last night's debate he has been renamed "O-bomba"?
Apparently an organization is planning an major expose of the illegitimate donations, sometime this weekend, according to the Washington Examiner:
According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.
The Obama campaign has received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via credit card donations through their website. On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million.It's probably too much to expect that, once it is revealed what a liar, cheater, scam artist and poseur this guy is, the Obambots will consider at least not voting.
