BOMBSHELL: OBAMA.COM OWNED BY BUNDLER IN SHANGHAI WITH BUSINESS TIES TO CHINESE GOVERNMENT

quote:

In an explosive report set to send shockwaves through official Washington, the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) released a 108-page GAI investigation into the threat of foreign and fraudulent Internet campaign donations in U.S. federal elections (visit campaignfundingrisks.com to download the full report).


quote:

Breitbart News obtained an advance copy of the bombshell report which reveals that the Obama.com website is not owned by the president’s campaign but rather by Obama bundler Robert Roche, a U.S. citizen living in Shanghai, China. Roche is the chairman of a Chinese infomercial company, Acorn International, with ties to state-controlled banks that allow it to “gain revenue through credit card transactions with Chinese banks.”

There’s more.
The unusual Obama.com website redirects traffic directly to a donation page on the Obama campaign’s official website, my.barackobama.com, which does not require donors to enter their credit card security code (known as the CVV code), thereby increasing the likelihood of foreign or fraudulent donations. The website is managed by a small web development firm, Wicked Global, in Maine. One of Wicked Global’s employees, Greg Dorr, lists on his LinkedIn page his additional employment with Peace Action Maine and Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights. According to the GAI report, 68 percent of all Internet traffic to Obama.com comes from foreign visitors.

And still more.
In 2011, Mr. Roche obtained one of the most sought-after pieces of real estate in Washington, DC: a seat at the head table for President Obama’s State Dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao. How Roche—a man whose infomercial company hawks fitness equipment, cell phones, and breast enhancement products—landed a seat alongside Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, Sen. John Kerry, former President Jimmy Carter, and Chinese President Hu Jintao remains unclear.
Since 2009, White House Visitor Logs list the name Robert Roche at least 19 times, despite the fact Mr. Roche’s primary residence is in China.

If the GAI investigated and has a report there has to be more than smoke... Not that it will matter.

Holy shit! Now how does this play out? Seriously, what's the reasonable explanation for this?

I guess we need the report to be released. Can you update the title to make more people aware?

Did she discuss already? I switched over as soon as I read your post but she was talking about how Mitt has no foreign policy experience.

No mainstream media outside of Fox will pay attention.

Not using a CVV code isn't exclusive to Obama's campaign.

[quote]The report showed 47.3 percent of House and Senate members with online donation pages also do not use the CVV requirement.

Guess we'll see about the owner of the website. Seems like Obama & Co. would be smart enough to know that ppl would be doing backgrounds checks and not leave themselves exposed.

Yes but the Obama campaign got in trouble for this exact issue in 08. You are also required to enter a CVV if you want to buy merchandise from them.
