Exclusive : Bamís blind eye to illegal donors
New York Post ^ | OCTOBER 21, 2012 | ISABEL VINCENT and MELISSA KLEIN

The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign donation in violation of the law — and does nothing to check on the provenance of millions of dollars in other contributions, a watchdog group alleges.

Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to knowingly solicit or accept money from foreign citizens.

Walker said he used his actual street address in England but entered Arkansas as his state with the Schenectady, NY, ZIP code of 12345.

“When I did Romney’s, the payment got rejected on the grounds that the address on the card did not match the address that I entered,” he said. “Romney’s Web site wanted the code from the back of card. Barack Obama’s didn’t.”

In September, Obama’s campaign took in more than $2 million from donors who provided no ZIP code or incomplete ZIP codes, according to data posted on the Federal Election Commission Web site.

You know, this guy must have two blind eyes, because he has missed many things of importance during his administration.

Obama's eyes blurry. Administration's eyes open and calculating. Media's eyes voluntarily closed. Low information public therefore mostly blind.

Only took 90 minutes after 4 years (really 8 years plus state level ad hominem victories) to rectify that.

breaking the law is irrelevant to democrats.
0failure can do anything and the GOP will not call him on it

even something as simple as identity theft they will not discuss... never mind actually adhering to Constitutional requirements

A blind eye on purpose, there is not a stitch of respectability for the rule of law in this mans body. He is a radical and radicals have no rules except one “by whatever means necessary”

4 years of exclusive stories about 1,000’s of blatent and intentional violations of federal law... and no action. Sad, they should raid the campaign office and someones should go to jail for a long time.

I agree with your comments, but missed the significance of the 90 minutes part.

The end justifies the means...

Hmmm, where have I heard that statement? I'm sure it will come to me.
