Skip to comments.Foreign Donor Scandal to Hit Obama Campaign?
Posted on 10/05/2012 3:12:02 PM PDT by Kaslin
The Washington Examiner is reporting Obama For America is about to get rocked by a scandal involving taxes and foreign donors.
According to knowledgeable sources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.
Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday.
According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.
The Obama campaign has received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via credit card donations through their website. On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million.
It's no surprise President Obama has support overseas. Billionaires like George Soros support him and considering Hollywood is partially controlled by European money, naturally Obama has foreign support. Obama's economic philosophy is also similar to European style resdistribution of wealth, which is why French President Francois Hollande supports him. We'll have to wait and see how this story plays out and whether the Obama campaign really has a problem/scandal to deal with a month away from Election Day.
Why would this be a scandal? He did it during his first campaign, the xlinton’s did it, and he even went to Europe for fundraisers a couple months ago. No news here; move along.
You know who else supports him, rich Saudi’s...
Change obama to Romney and watch the outrage reach into the sky
Guess he’ll have to return that $3 donation from Hugo Chavez.
The 47% won’t give a rat’s a$$...or is that Rat’s a$$?
Why would a foreign donor problem?
Nothing to see here. Please move along...
Democrats have NO morals.....they LOVE to KILL BABIES, so why would raising money from foreigners prick their consciences?? PLEASE!
What if they threw a scandal and nobody cared? Obama gets foreign donations ... universal shrug.
If this story really takes off, I would love to know if they can find a single person whose vote was affected.
We know 0bama raises lots of money from the Gaza Strip.
We can only hope
I always think this way. Don’t threaten and talk about it.
JUST DO IT!
The Washington Post did a good bit of reporting on this four years ago- but other than a few raised eyebrows- not much came of it. This would have to be HUGE for it to get real traction. If Benghazi hasn’t changed the minds of Americans..a little dirty cash won’t.
Oddly enough- my one liberal friend changed her mind and will vote for Romney. Why? Obama going to Las Vegas and on The View after the TERRORIST attack in Benghazi. Go figure.
His domestic policy initiatives are dependent upon who contributes the most.
Likewise, his foreign policy initiatives are open to the highest bidder or biggest contributors.
That’s why he has failed on all fronts.
Big money from the Muslim Brotherhood? If it wasn't unusual, like the Soros donations, he wouldn't care. Everyone knows Soroes owns the democrat party. Who other than Al Queda and Soros would want Oboma for another 4 years?
“........Who other than Al Queda and Soros would want Oboma for another 4 years?”
The Saudi princes, the Russians and the Chinese.
My thoughts exactly, which suggests there may be more involved this time around.
