奥巴马被曝“从中国非法筹款” 2012年10月10日 13:30:37  (MACHINE TRANSLATION BELOW) FROM CHINA, TODAY 来源: 环球时报 3【字号:大 中 小】【打印】【纠错】   美国民间组织“政府问责研究所”8日发表了一份长达109页的报告,指控奥巴马竞选团队“向包括中国、越南、阿塞拜疆、日本、挪威、荷兰、埃及在内的许多外国人士寻求捐款,并接收外国信用卡的网上交易,违反了美国的联邦选举法”。美国法律禁止总统大选候选人接受非美国公民的捐款。《华盛顿邮报》5日报道称,奥巴马团队曾试图阻止该报告发表,称该指责“毫无根据”,但并未成功。   据《华盛顿检查者报》9日报道,题为“脆弱的美国:外国的和具有欺骗性的在线竞选募捐正在影响美国大选吗”的报告,由“政府问责研究所”历时9个月的调查编写。报告称,对于网上捐款,奥巴马竞选团队只要求捐款人输入信用卡背面的3位安全码,而不必提供进一步的安全信息。这种拒绝采取符合行业标准的网上交易安全措施的做法,可以为竞选团队节省数百万美元的网络交易费。该研究所通过一系列在线搜索工具,分析了奥巴马竞选网站“my.barackobama.com”链接的部分外国网站。报告说,一名中国博主曾把奥巴马竞选团队发给他的多封邮件贴到网上,每封邮件都要求捐赠3或5美元,这种小额捐赠不需要竞选团队保留任何记录。此外,许多国家的人士都曾接到了奥巴马竞选团队要求捐款的邮件,或者曾帮助把奥巴马竞选网站的地址上传到网上。   报告特别指出,通过信用卡网上交易接受捐款的网站“Obama.com”是住在上海的美国商人罗伯特·洛奇2008年注册的。《华盛顿检查者报》称,洛奇来自美国伊利诺伊州,2009年以来曾19次访问白宫,包括与奥巴马进行过一次私人会见。2010年,洛奇将该网站域名卖给了一个身份不明的人。英国《每日邮报》9日也引述该报告的内容称,来自“谷歌在线流量分析服务”的数据显示,“Obama.com”大约68%的流量来自美国以外的IP地址。   福克斯新闻网8日援引对“政府问责研究所”所长史威哲的采访称,“奥巴马竞选团队在吸纳网上捐款方面是最成功的,也是最敢闯的,这一点非常明确。他们收到了高达万亿美元的小额捐款,也经常向全世界的人寻求捐款。”根据美国有关规定,低于200美元的捐款并不需要公开相关信息。史威哲还称,许多美国政治家的募捐网站都有类似的“缺陷”,并警告称,“外国政府明白美国选举的弱点,并期待加以利用”。   对于该报告的内容,奥巴马团队通过博客发表声明说,从不接受外国公民的捐款,并会通过“地址证明系统”确认捐款人作为美国公民的真实性。声明还称,“政府问责研究所”的指控只是反映了“其政治立场,不包含任何事实”。(陈一鸣)

Note, the "Robert Lodge" mentioned by automated (and thus prone to slight errors) machine translation, is actually Chamber of Commerce in China for America "Robert Roche", the Obama Shanghai-based bundler, and I believe later given a position with Obama.
