Skip to comments.Readers don't buy 'explanation' of donations GAZA $33,000 ILLEGAL TO OBAMA

A Wall Street Journal report brushed off concerns about contributions of more than $30,000 to Sen. Barack Obama campaign from three brothers in Gaza, but the newspaper's readers weren't swallowing the explanation.

The death of journalism is here. Move over dead media...the new media will arise.
The Obamabots are infiltrating comments wherever this is posted and directing to McCain articles that THE MSM IS PUBLISHING and 1) WaPo got it WRONG (had to retract statements) and 2) McCain addresses it and DOES RETURN $$ that is questionable.
OBAMA SAYS HE RETURNED MONEY BUT THE DONORS (IN GAZA!!!) didn't get it.
Well, no story there...Nope. Move along.
Sorry for the caps...I'm very frustrated. It's bloody amazing to be the one who put the story OUT THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE (dammit!!) and to see how it's twisted and played.
sheesh...ok...calming down now.
I bet it is a big story among non Hollywood Jewish community.
>>>OBAMA SAYS HE RETURNED MONEY BUT THE DONORS (IN GAZA!!!) didn’t get it.
When the stories of Norman Hsu were being followed here, some that were being questioned about donations from here were able to decline the donations by giving them to ‘charity’. Many were speculating that the monies would go to a charity that would launder them back into their campaign at some point.
Anyway, back to topic. When will the 'news' media get it and start reporting the news?
about donations from here were = about donations from him (as in Hsu) were
I am wondering if the full data that is in the FEC donor file should be put out for people to see for themselves?
What is reported in the searches at FEC, OpenSecrets, Donor.org, etc. is only contributions over $200.
Obama is getting millions under this amount. I think this is why he is forgoing public money so that he can get money that he doesn't have to report to the public. You CAN get the raw data, and I already have it in spreadsheets.
I see that 35,000 contributions totaling over 3 million are in really odd dollar and cents amounts. The other oddity is that these kind of donations were made in larger and larger numbers (meaning in from numbers of donors) as time went on in the campaign.
What do you think?
I’ve no idea if this is related to the media silence; but I found the timing interesting.
During the last campaign I worked on, we were using a newswire service because my candidate’s Press Releases were not being picked up by our local news.
Even with the newswire service, the local news were still ignoring our news.
Our newswire service assigned a service rep to analyze all the releases we had and who picked up the stories vs. who didn’t and why. I don’t know who that data is being collected for; but I’m hoping it is to target this type of silencing.
Interesting thread. And I’m am more than sure that this can’t be the first time. (meaning candidate and laundering)
I think the Mahdi wannabe needs a vacation at Gitmo.
Oh, I’m sorry, you meant what do I think of your contribution analysis!
I think you have done an excellent job following this. You have been on it like a pit bull for the past couple of weeks.
Bump to the top!
Bump for later.
Good stuff ping
There have been some threads Ex-Tex has pinged me to that shows, some how, that the mortgage crises is related to the voter fraud (ACORN).
Two things I find interesting that I don’t know how to plug in because monies laundering can be over my head at times.
1) Jon Corzine (NJ Gov/Goldman Sachs Exec/former/but not quite) has been working on Obama’s campaign.
2) Obama has a PAC that deals with low income housing and has some oddly related churches attached to it that have been issuing large grants to support immigrants/illegals. That is the Hopefund PAC. One of the grants that is related is called Unity.
3) Corzine just made a trip to Israel in reference to Obama’s campaign. One of the developers, Charles Kushner, that was heavily involved with Clinton’s campaign in the past has a construction developers business there. Kushner was the one that sponsored Golan Cipel. That was our former gov McGreevey, I am a Gay American’s, boyfriend. Remember, Mcreevey made him head of NJ’s homeland security.
Maybe someone will know some more pieces to plug in here.
