who in their right mind would give money to someone with a web page like this? Sounds like a “lost Nigerian bank account” letter

That is understandable, after all, Obama is impersonating a president!

I really cannot understand why they would take $50,000 from ANYBODY when it’s just as easy, perhaps easier with less negatives, to just take $50 from, say, 1000 Chinese dishwashers.

Businessmen deserve what they get. They go around exploiting the proletariat and third world countries, so of course there’s payback time. Assongbo merely did her patriotic duty by defrauding that businessman./sarc

Where did they go or where will they go? Look at it this way. Where Sen. McCain is was a true War Hero and he couldn’t get the votes, how many do you think “Mittens”, the GOP-e’s latest blue blood RINO will get?

But Mrs Assongba is also fending off a civil court case in Florida, where she’s accused of thieving more than $650,000 to help build a multimillion-dollar home in the state - a charge her husband denies.

Mrs Assongba was listed on Obama’s campaign website as one of its volunteer fundraisers - a much smaller group of about 440 people.

Meanwhile, Mrs Assongba has left a trail of debts, with a former landlord demanding in court more than $10,000 in back rent and damages for a previous apartment. She was also evicted in 2004 after owing $5,000 in rent, records show.

Claiming that defendant had failed to timely make the $3,500 payment in accordance with the terms of the stipulation, plaintiff commenced the instant action seeking to recover the principal sum of $8,750 for arrears due and owing pursuant to the month-to-month lease, and $1,615 for damage to the premises. Plaintiff thereafter moved for summary judgment. The Civil Court denied the motion on the ground that there were issues of fact as to whether defendant had timely complied with the stipulation settling the prior summary proceeding, and this appeal ensued.

Peter Allen Moote, lawyer, admits to embezzling $1 million. The article doesn’t mention political affiliation which means that he’s...youguessedit...a democRAT.

On purpose too. Obama knows very well no one likes them. Until we find a moral person; we will continue to go down.

What headache? We're talking about Baraq here. It'll get swept under the rug and it'll then be corruption as usual.

Being accused of fraud may not "look" good, but she has not been convicted.

Innocent until proven guilty.
