Skip to comments.Integrity and Attribution: Obama's Foreign Contribution and Campaign Finance Fraud, The Timeline
Posted on 04/21/2011 5:51:22 PM PDT by Nachum
Here's an update to yesterday's piece on "doing the right thing"........ which was a big thank you kiss to Tom Blumer, editor of the leading business blog, Bizzy Blog, and a PJM contributor.
The foreign contribution story I broke in July 2008 took months to pull together. It is irritating to listen to people justify what amounts to an intellectual theft. It is wrong. Not only did we go through thousands of pages of FEC douments, but I followed up with David Keene (yes, Grover's boy) in 2008 as well. He was the President of the ACU, and I implored him to file suit against the BHO campaign. I sent Keene all of the evidence I uncovered and he assured me that the ACU would follow up. But I never heard back.
I wrote over 53 articles, some of them very lengthy, and all of them the result of hard work and creative investigation. It was all inclusive of serious violations of campaign finance fraud, including contributions from Gaza, gibberish donors, non-existent donors, foreign bundling, the exchange rate fiasco, in which people contributed $9.19 (for crying out loud), the fact that Obama websites published lists of people doing the bundling ... which have never been credited to me, and for which my investigative efforts have never been acknowledged.
I merely request that the record kept straight. I am alleging no wrongdoing. But I did break tremendously creative ground, performed a public service, and never got credit for it. And it wasn't a couple articles that might have been missed. It was exhaustive.
Here are the 2008 Atlas posts breaking the story. I think people lifting the work without attribution and credit should see how I broke the story and the amount of work that went into it. Here's the timeline:

Here is the continuing exchange between Ken Timmerman and Tom Blumer, a man I do not know well, but who clearly has enormous integrity. He took it upon himself to right this wrong. Righteous. Perhaps Ken Timmerman's failure to do the right thing was more than anything else what caused my work to be overlooked by those that picked up his story:
Excellent work here
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Sure hope he has enough left in the tank to take on George Soros as his next (lack of) character study.
