Four years late?
I guess it was impossible to get that news out before november 6.
Well...the FEC oughta be able to buy a piece of gum with THAT.
I’m certain Bath-House and buddies are shaking in their boots over this.
Big deal. Chump change.
And nothing about the foreign credit card donations and the lax controls.
Nothing to see here—move along.

Here’s Evidence of Foreign Campaign Donations
Hypocrisy? CNBC Shows More ‘Foreign-Connected’ Money Goes to Dems by a ‘Healthy Margin’
It seems like a phony issue for the a struggling Obama administration to be promoting the allegations that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce may or may not be using foreign contributions to fuel political ads against Democrats. However, President Barack Obama would be best advised to make sure his party wasnt doing something similar before using the bully pulpit to push this meme.
On CNBCs Oct. 11 broadcast of Power Lunch, CNBC Washington correspondent Eamon Javers laid out the latest ramped up attacks on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce from the president.

**Fictitious Donors Found in Obama Finance Records**
Last December, someone using the name “Test Person”, from “Some Place, UT”, made a series of contributions, the largest being $764, to Senator Barack Obamas presidential campaign totaling $2,410.07.
Someone identifying himself as “Jockim Alberton”, from 1581 Leroy Avenue in Wilmington, Del., began giving to Mr. Obama last November, contributing $10 and $25 at a time for a total of $445 through the end of February.
The only problem? There is no Leroy Avenue in Wilmington. And Jockim Alberton, who listed his employer and occupation as “Fdsa Fdsa”, does not show up in a search of public records.
this is just BS.....
wake me if he pays it
I’m sure this will lead the network news. /sarc
