Call him up, and tell him what you think of his shameless terrorist coattail riding:

Thinly veiled vote buying scheme. Perhaps the FEC would be interested.
This sounds illegal. Aren’t they basicaaly paying people to register and vote for Obama?
Excuse me, but isn’t this the equivalent of a campaign contribution?
Masud Osman expresses his support for brother Hussein.
Not only that, it’s corrupt and misleading. And this dude sounds like he is muslim lebanese.
Does anyone use “iwon.com” for their searches anymore? I think that idea went away, a long time ago.
“Muslim terrorists for Obama”
“Each time they return, they automatically accumulate additional Obama Points...”
Good Lord....(eye roll) lol
Some guy you have never heard of is offering $10 million? Is he spending his own money?

But, it gets better. Here's what you have to do to win:
The potential Grand Prize winner will be determined by a random drawing from all eligible entries received to be held at GNET.COM Corporation on October 10, 2010. The winner will be notified by mail, e-mail, or telephone. Then the contestant's full birthday (month, day, and year) must match the pre-selected birthday which will be sealed in tamper proof envelope(s) ahead of time. If a complete birthday match (month, day, and year) occurs then the contestant will be able to select one of the [above] payout options without interest:
This is an illegal sweepstakes / lottery. Normally, the states will sue your pants off for an illegal sweepstakes. They have to be registered and run by specific firms.
Uuuuummmmm, your state — california, could definately use that money — Oh, but this is a much better use of it...
Marketwatch is owned by CBS. Obviously, they don’t screen before they announce...but then, we knew that. ;-)
My last was incorrect...CBS used to own Marketwatch, it is now owned by DowJones newswire.
Hmmm, it may be completely suitable for Obama to be connected with. We need to play this up, not bury it.

Only if you bombed buildings and are an unrepentent terrorist.
is it legal to require a specific vote?
does that not violate the “no purchase necessary” laws.
Two years from now.
