Skip to comments.RNC to File FEC Complaint on Obama Fundraising Practices
Posted on 10/05/2008 11:29:06 AM PDT by TornadoAlley3
A lawyer for the Republican National Committee today said the party will ask the Federal Election Commission to look into the source of thousands of small-dollar contributions to the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama.
The RNC is alleging that the Obama campaign was so hungry for donations it "looked the other way" as contributions piled up from suspicious, and possibly even illegal foreign donors.
"We believe that the American people should know first and foremost if foreign money is pouring into a presidential election," said RNC Chief Counsel Sean Cairncross.
Cairncross alleged there was mounting evidence of this, and cited an Oct. 4 report in Newsweek that documents a handful of instances where donors made repeated small donations using fake names, such as "Good Will" and "Doodad Pro."

a bit late eh?
How about finding out if he is a citizen while you are at it.
I know it’s a small thing to you, but just maybe he isn’t.
Are we seeing an actual NARRATIVE being written before our eyes?
Ayers, Rezko, Foreign donations.....
Hopefully McCain will start putting Obama on the defensive for a change.
No wonder we call ourselves the stupid party
Maybe they waited until more and more objective evidence became clear. Hopefully, they sat a trap on the dems.
Indeed. And the McCain/Palin ticket are campaigning in CA. It's almost like they don't want it. And what could that mean?
Well now, using this as a reference McCain will show up at the voting booth on Feb 1, 2009.
Yeah, NOW you decide to file something, now that the money is already in and most of it spent or going to be spent. What’s next, you gonna get after that voter fraud issue? What a collection of incompetent clowns running the RNC, a bunch of complete losers. The average Free Republic poster would be a significant upgrade to virtually any of the Republican Party ‘leadership’.
Sure they’ll look into. Next year.
Maybe the Senate could hold hearings. And McCain could divert our attention with a call for Campaign Finance Reform?
Good. We need as much negative stuff about Obama as we can come up with.
There is going to be so much sh*t flung against Osama, there is no way he will be able to deflect it all, even with the MSM carrying his water.
Yeah, how many months have they been claiming that Obamessiah is raising 10’s of millions a month from “small, online donors”? Crap. Somebody needs to donate a few thousand cases of Red Bull to the RNC and McCain campaign.
TOO LATE,... they let tooooo much time slip by! The majority of WICKED liberal judges are in the tank for the false messiah!! Only God can stop their wicked deeds!
I think that gazillions of small credit card payments from Saudi Arabia might have an effect on some voter’s perceptions of this guy.
And the only way to stop this stuff is to make the offending campaign give the questionable donations to the OPPOSING party. This business of “returning” the money is bogus since that is never enforced to see if it was really done. Ditto for “giving it to charity.” If you can’t trust these corrupt campaigns in raising the money, you certainly shouldn’t trust them to give it back.
Yes. We all no nothing will be done about it before the election. They should have filed the complaint before the campaign began!
I heard Obama's campaign has 1/2 billion dollars....much is expected to have come in from overseas.
Hey, but do not fear we have McCain's campaign finance laws protecting us....(sarc)
Obama does not have to disclose contributions coming in under $200, McCain does anyway. I suspect some smart Oil sheik has contributed most of it in $200 increments.
How about also demanding to see an authentic birth certificate?
Why do you think Obamination went abroad if not to collect campaign funds? The Muzzies have complied, I have no doubt.
Obama's already run his 24 hour ad....you would think that any reporter, even in the MSM, would be even a bit curious about where all this mega money is flowing in from. But hey, why should we worry about the money, campaign finance reform is keeping everyone honest.
the media will call the RNC crybabies and spin as such
“How about finding out if he is a citizen while you are at it.”
Sure, why shouldn’t a foreigner use foreign money. LOL
I would love to know just how many CC donations are $199.99 just under the limit?
How about hundreds of thousands of volunteers investigating RAT voter fraud that has been plotted for months and old standbys that have been used for decades. They’re digging in grave yards and going into nursing homes and homeless shelters stealing votes. Let’s not forget the illegals voting too.
Yet another piece of the attack narrative.
Isn’t this a little too late?
Timing is everything.
All the issues being raised are "common sense" type issues that Joe six-pack will understand.
The convoluted explanation that would be required for the MSM to bail out Obama will not be able to be implemented in time to outweigh the damage of the people see his true colors prior to election day.
IMHO, California is still in play (as is evey other state in the union).
Yet another piece of the attack narrative.
He has to be overwhelmed with negatives before voters will take a serious look into them.
About frickin’ time. Too bad the Glorious Leader and his shock troops will shut the investigation down in about three months.
Day late and a dollar short guys.....
For Hillary it is.
For McCain/Palin October is prime time.
***The average Free Republic poster would be a significant upgrade to virtually any of the Republican Party leadership.***
I completely agree with you.
Thank you! This is perfect timing to get inside the Obama head even more. It has been known for sometime but the electorate doesn’t start listening until right before the election.
What’s Obama’s next move? Say it is racist again?
So many people on here are so quick to judge that everything McCain is doing is wrong that it makes me wonder. This is a chess match and McCain is controlling the board right now.
No doubt AP will say this has a racist tinge.
I hope you're right....I also hope that McCain/Palin will win in a landslide and I can have faith in my fellow Americans again....because it looks as if they're out to lunch....at my expense.
True enough....but I'm confused....I thought Jesse Jackson said Obama wasn't a REAL black person....so if he's not black, are we still racist?
Foreign money is the only way he could afford his own TV channel 73, 24/7 and no commercials.
Obama: Thank you fellow citizens of Germany! Thank you! Thank you! Yes, American is an imperfect country! Thank you for your contributions!
Thanks finally to the RNC for looking into this gigantic fraud.
Palin Criticizes Obamas Terrorist Connection
The FEC is toothless. The only remedy is a fine, and even that won’t come for more than a year.
The FEC is a humorless joke.
No it's not!!!!!!!
(since I used more exclamation points, naturally I win)
