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 Obamas 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 Romneys, the payment got rejected on the grounds that the address on the card did not match the address that I entered, he said. Romneys Web site wanted the code from the back of card. Barack Obamas didnt.

NAS Sigonella on Sicily is 500 miles from Bengazi and the AC130 cruises at 300 mph —they could have made it in 1.5 hrs. There were also F18’s there that could have arrived in 20 minutes.
There was also a SF quick reaction force —a large one— all geared up with helicopter rotars turning there on the ground at Sigonella, awaiting orders.
They begged to launch but the orders never came and they just sat on the tarmac while our people died.
Same as in 2008.
Thanks for posting this. I hope the story grows legs.
I think you posted to the wrong thread.
Will Romney have the cojones to ask the FEC and the IRS to look into each and every one of the donations made to the 0blahblah campaign? They’ve borrowed millions recently and would have a much tougher time repaying the money if they had to refund all the foreign money.
Looking forward, can we expect the Romney administration to push for laws requiring strong fines and even jail time for future offenders? (I know, that’s way too much to ask, but a fella can dream)
