Report: Obama attempting to block major story on donor scandal



On Thursday, the Washington Examiner reported that the Obama campaign has been trying to block a story that reveals a major donor scandal being prepared by a national magazine and web site.

"But," Paul Bedard wrote, a "key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday."

According to Bedard's 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," he added, "might be a violation of federal election laws."

Bedard said that the Obama re-election 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."

"To raise $150 million in a month, you need an awful lot of donors," a post at Hot Air observed.

A similar problem was unearthed during the 2008 campaign when a Kansas City couple reported a "strange" $2,300 donation to Obama that appeared on their credit card statement. The couple said they were McCain voters and would never donate to Obama.

Although Chase dropped the charge, further investigation revealed a number of donations from fictional characters like Bart Simpson, Daffy Duck and King Kong, all using prepaid credit cards. Even "O. J. Simpson" donated $5 to the campaign.

"At the time," Bedard said, "the Washington Post reported that the Obama campaign let donors use 'largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor's identity.'"

In 2008, the Post said that questions were raised when they discovered that Mary T. Biskup, a retired insurance manager from Manchester, MO., had donated $174,800 to the Obama campaign, according to FEC reports.

"Contributors are limited to giving $2,300 for the general election," the Post said.

Worse yet, Biskup told the Post she never donated to the Obama campaign and her credit card was never billed for the donations.

I've seen a couple of places say that Newsweek is the one with the story. I find it hard to believe that they would publish something this close to the election that could hurt Obama.

I remember a story like this from 2008 on drudge. Nothing came of it back then.

If proven accurate what is the penalty and to whom? Do they have to give the money back? Is Goddell going to take a draft pick?

So that's how all the profits for F&F gets back into Obama's pocket.

Obama would undoubtedly be protected if there's a huge scandal here. So, who takes the fall if illegal donations are going on?

If he did get thrown under the bus, Axelrod is enough of a weasel that I think he would take down everyone else in a blaze of glory.

The last four years will be remembered as a dark time in this country's history. Not only did we vote an inadequate joke into the highest position in our government, but there are still American people, even after four years of utter failures and possible treason, that will defend this man to the bitter end out of nothing other than fear of being intolerant...

It was pretty obvious that his campaign was getting donations via ways that skirted reporting guidelines and it was largely ignored.

I stopped at "the Washington examiner" just because its printed doesn't make it true. Is there a place you folks on the right can go to to get some common sense

Anyone with common sense knows this is a "real story." YOu obviously don't have any.

Are you really unfamiliar with this story?

Maybe this will finally prove to the MSM libtards that Obama is a Muslim who wants to destroy America, end freedom, shite on the Bible/Constitution (same thing), dissolve democracy, and give our nuclear codes to china so they can bomb every church in the nation.
