MIAMI The donations kept pouring in: hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to President Obama and more than a dozen members of Congress, carefully routed through the families of two wealthy brothers in Florida.
They had good reason to be generous. The two men, Roberto and William Isaias, are fugitives from Ecuador, which has angrily pressed Washington to turn them over, to no avail. A year after their relatives gave $90,000 to help re-elect Mr. Obama, the administration rejected Ecuadors extradition request for the men, fueling accusations that such donations were helping to keep the brothers and their families safely on American soil.
The Isaias brothers fled to Miami not to live off their work, something just, but to buy themselves more mansions and Rolls-Royces and to finance American political campaigns, President Rafael Correa of Ecuador told reporters last month. Thats what has given them protection, he added, an allegation the Obama administration and members of Congress reject.

Odd that a communist president in Ecuador is publicly criticizing the communist president here; I’d think the level of remittances to Ecuador has reached a point where their president would just acknowledge that like Mexico, his country is just a satellite of the US. Heck, they even use the US$ as their currency...
On the other hand, it is nice to be wanted by SOMEbody.
T. E. A.
My family is from Ecuador, so I can tell you that if the communist Correa government is after the Isaias family, it is probably because they are good people.
They are an immigrant family from Lebanon, who after 3 generations became very successful and owned banks. It is also very likely that if they owned banks they were involved in money laundering, like every other bank on Wall Street.
If Correa chased them out, they didnt play ball. Ecuador uses the US $, and is involved in the drug trade at the government level. Correa uses successfull people to make them a scapegoat for the ills that his own corruption created.
People with that amount of money know they have to grease palms. Donating money to Obama was just insurance. It happens all the time on both sides of the political isle.
It’s a case where you lie with dogs you get fleas. I really hope in the case of Obama’s covert Narco organization supporters turns on him and outs him for the corrupt puppet that he is.
The multi billion $ sophisticated Narco organizations, which include the Muslim Brotherhood, and other elements of Islamic revolutionary groups, along with Soros’ influence peddling prowess, are the powers behind our manchurian candidate and those all over Latin America.
Soros launders their money in his unregulated Hedge Funds and off shore tax havens.
Every thing is for sale in Obama’s mind bet he would sell his kids if the price was right.
