Did Obama solicit funds from people in other countries to help his campaign?



quote:

According to a 109-page report released Monday by the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), the Obama campaign has solicited donations from a number of foreign nations, including China, Vietnam and Azerbaijan.


quote:

According to the report, a Chinese blogger reposted letters he received from the Obama campaign, each of which contains a solicitation for $3 or $5. The report observed that the "smaller donations don’t require the campaign to keep any record..."


quote:

"A writer in Vietnam writes on a website for the Vietnam Institute for Development Studies (a government-backed think tank) and posts emails he has received from my.barackobama.com with more than 24 total links to the campaign’s donate page embedded in the emails," the report added.


quote:

The campaign has also sent solicitation letters to a Dutch blogger, a "member of the Italian Radical Socialist movement," a Japanese blogger, a Norwegian blogger and a "blogger in Egypt who serves on the board of the Union of Arab Bloggers."

Thats what happens when you REQUIRE someone's email address to allow someone to find out any info on your plans on the WORLD wide web.

I have to admit the BS emails I get daily are somewhat comical though.

I think this would only be a distraction from the important issues. Even if there is something illegal going on there, it's too murky and would take along time to investigate. The election will long since be over and it makes the Republicans (and I'm one) look as desperate as the Dems to distract from the main issues. Just one man's opinion ...

I saw an interview with two of the people.

1) On the website where you purchase items (coffee mugs, etc) they require a credit card Security number (3 digits back of visa, 4 digits front of AMEX). On the same site, whee they take donations....not required


2) The Fed rules require keeping certain records for donations of $200 and over. the foreign solicitation specifically ask for $190 dollar donations

Read about that.

They said they had fictitious names, and one of them donated $20k, in several small amounts. The big thing was, is that the donations did not require the CVV number.

The Romey campaign should IMMEDIATELY REMOVE any requirement for the security number, and appeal to the World to help Capitalism beat Obama.

And I guarantee you it wouldn't take until after the election, for this whole thing to be shut down. Fire with fire...gloves off. The only way to beat this bunch or the Islamsits.
