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."

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)
Before Obama collected the money? So a preemptive, psychic legal maneuver?? I like it!!
Does this mean that I am not the only one that finds this new overuse of the term “NARRATIVE” obnoxious? I think I may start throwing things.
What is the downside of this fraudulent activity?
Is it greater than the upside?
Obama cheats and gets elected and the DNC gets fined $100,000.
Besides paying all those hotshots to witch hunt, trying to shut down opposition
and free speech with threats (very unpresidential I must say, unless you have a commie mind)
I wonder how many bums, addicts, homeless, etc. were payed for their votes. Takes a lot of money for slimy cheaters to win.
Watch the SEC turn its head.
I am not so sure. I think this time the McCain camp might be right on this. The memory of the voter is short lived and past studies have shown most of the electorate does not become engaged until 5 or fewer weeks before the election. If the campaign litters the field with all that has been know it will put the 0bama camp on complete defense taking them completely off message. It will look chaotic and poised as not ready to lead. With the VP debate behind and Biden demoralized, it is perfect timing.
Look for the campaign to become much more direct in their criticism. It will create an unfavorable look on 0bama and equally important, it will show the disgrace of the MSM as they completely loose their composure trying to protect Hussein. 0bama....
Maybe the evidence hadn't been developed earlier.
Mexican illegals voting for a pro-abortion black man...are you kidding? They have his number.
....a bit late eh?....
Timing is everything. If the issue was raised too early it would be ineffective. If the issue and subsequent arrests are in October and part of a coordinated effort, think acorn voter fraud, and others, they all might be effective.
