Thinly veiled vote buying scheme. Perhaps the FEC would be interested.

Excuse me, but isn’t this the equivalent of a campaign contribution?

If this guy is putting up such money to be a Google AdWords remarketer, he's seriously off his meds.

Does anyone use “iwon.com” for their searches anymore? I think that idea went away, a long time ago.

This is some kind of scam, probably to gather email addresses.

Some guy you have never heard of is offering $10 million? Is he spending his own money?

Oh, you thought it was $100 million? Read the fine print:

http://www.gnet.com/officialrules.html

The payout options are:

A) $100,000,000.00 at $100,000.00 for 50 years and a final payment of $95,000,000.00.
B) $40,000,000.00 at $300,000.00 for 40 years and a final payment of $28,000,000.00.
C) $25,000,000.00 at $500,000.00 for 50 years.
D) $15,000,000.00 at $750,000.00 for 20 years.
E) $10,000,000.00 as a lump sum cash payment.

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.

Marketwatch is owned by CBS. Obviously, they don’t screen before they announce...but then, we knew that. ;-)

How about someone sponsoring a prize that proves Obama is not qualified to be prez due to the fact that he is not a naturalized citizen.

My last was incorrect...CBS used to own Marketwatch, it is now owned by DowJones newswire.

Wow, what a totally phony contest!

Hmmm, it may be completely suitable for Obama to be connected with. We need to play this up, not bury it.

"My name is Barrak Obama,
And I barely know this person 'Masud Osman'.
We served on a couple of boards together,
He's a neighbor afterall,
I never heard him make a racist statement,
I didn't know he was a muslim,
and; Michelle really does love America.
Thank you."
