Skip to comments.Obama's Fishy $200 Million
Posted on 10/02/2008 11:47:13 AM PDT by GVnana
An auditor for the Federal Election Commission is attempting to have his bosses seek a formal investigation into the collection by the Obama for President campaign of more than $200 million in potentially illegal political donations, including millions of dollars of illegal, foreign donations, and has sought a request for assistance from the Department of Justice or Federal Bureau of Investigation. But the analyst's requests have largely been ignored. "I can't get anyone to move. I believe we are looking at a hijacking of our political system that makes the Clinton and Gore fundraising scandals pale in comparison. And no one here wants to touch it."
One reasons cited by his superiors, says the analyst, is that involvement by the Justice Department or FBI would be indicative of a criminal investigation, something the FEC would prefer not take place a month before the presidential election. Such actions, though, have been used to scuttle Republican campaigns in the past, the most famous being the Weinberger case in the days leading up to the 1992 re-election bid of President George H.W. Bush.

This needs to be raised by McCain or raised in the debate tonight by Palin.
Given the laxness of the site..people overseas could have organized to put in multiple small contributions..it even could be automated..computer contributions.
If “Mr. Anonymous” isn’t willing to risk his job, or whatever confidentiality agreement he may have signed to bring his (documentary?) evidence forward, this goes nowhere. Some patriot “Mr. Anonymous” is.
are you having trouble getting article to show?
All that has to be done is to investigate the money flow out of the New Orleans based ACORN chapter. It is focused on foreign contributions that I am sure are finding their way back to BHO.
He’s just following the Clinton guide to stealing an election. Why play by the rules. The loser is never punished for illegal contributions and the winner can change the rules / or worry about it later after you win.
Good Grief. . .have been reading about this. . .and it is STILL hanging out there like dirty, untouched laundry.
There is a 'treason' going down here. . .and covert 'coup d'etat' as well.
Bush won’t do anything for McCain or he would have already when this was raised earlier. DOJ has a hearing loss.
I agree. $200 million is worth a job to me. I would assume someone in the marketplace would value an honest person. As long as Mr. Anonymous doesn’t end up accidentally dead.
Nope. Campaign shenanigans don’t amount to much in the public imagination.
Shades of clinton.
You're absolutely correct! Baraq Hussein mohammed 0bama's campaign cash is coming from overseas - Nigeria and moslem countries and of course his home country of Kenya. They want one of their "own" in the Oval Office.
WILL FOREIGN INTERESTS DETERMINE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT?
“Nigeria and moslem countries and of course his home country of Kenya.”
Those guys have been trying to send me money for years. Who knew it was for real?!
Foreigners certaily have a vested interest. The bail out will undoubtedly end up subsidizing some foreign banks. And don't forget the Global Poverty Reduction Act of 2007 that Obama has sponsored.
