    EXPLOSIVE REPORT: OBAMA CAMPAIGN WEBSITE LACKS IMPORTANT TOOL TO PREVENT ILLEGAL DONATIONS October 8, 2012 by Mytheos Holt This past Thursday, TheBlaze teased a potential scandal surrounding President Obama’s donors. Now, we might know what that scandal is. According to a report by the conservative nonprofit Government Accountability Institute (GAI), and an explosive series of stories on Breitbart.com and the Daily Caller, the Obama campaign website appears to be built with an uncharacteristic lack of security where foreign donations are concerned. Despite donations from foreign sources being illegal under Federal law, all campaigns, whether at the congressional level or...

    A top Obama campaign bundler living in Shanghai, China, is an international businessman with ties to the Cayman Islands. Robert W. Roche has lived in China and Japan for the past 27 years, although he maintains a residence in Chicago. He has used his extensive connections to raise money for the Obama campaign, and has pledged to raise $500,000 for the Obama campaign this year, an upgrade from the $100,000-200,000 he agreed to raise four years ago. He donated the maximum $50,000 allowable to Obama’s inauguration fund in 2009. Roche’s wife, Ritsuko Hattori-Roche, along with Roche’s business partner Don Yang,...

    President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has been soliciting foreigners for donations, an explosive report from the conservative Government Accountability Institute (GAI) shows. Those foreign donors are allegedly visiting the Obama campaign’s donation solicitation Web pages through a social media website the campaign controls, and through an outside website that serves mostly Internet users from outside the United States. About 20 percent of visitors to the “my.barackobama.com” social media website “originated from foreign locations,” the report found. That Web address is owned and controlled by the Obama re-election campaign. “At no point during the [website's] subscription process is a visitor asked...

    -- Obama Campaign Lacks the Industry-Standard Level Of Credit Card Security For Donations, But Uses It For Merchandise Purchases: To purchase Obama campaign merchandise, the campaign requires buyers to enter their credit card CVV security code, but does not require the credit card security code to be entered when making an online campaign donation. By GAI's estimates, the Obama campaign's failure to utilize industry-standard protections potentially costs the campaign millions in extra processing fees.

    The Government Accountability Institute released a blockbuster study today on the issue of foreign donations in American politics, and in particular, the Obama campaign. The study determined three key findings: The absence of the industry-standard CVV and unknown use of AVS anti-fraud security for online credit card donations. The presence of a branded, major third-party owned website (Obama.com) redirects its 68% foreign traffic to a campaign donation page. Active foreign solicition using indiscriminate email solicitations and exposure to social media. The branded site, Obama.com, was created in Shanghai, China, by an Obama bundler, but its present registration information is hidden....
