REPORT: Obama Campaign Illegally Solicited Donations from Foreign Donors

The Obama campaign will go down in history for many reasons, including illegal activities that won't receive much press until the empty suit is out of office. On Monday we wrote about a percolating donor scandal within the Obama campaign. By all accounts, the story should have broke by now, but team Obama has been threatening those that plan to release it. On Monday, more information was revealed by the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), showing how 68% of web traffic to Obama.com comes from foreign countries.
Obama.com is owned by an Obama drone. When the site is visited, visitors are redirected to a campaign donation page on Obama's official website. The report didn't focus on the thug Obama campaign, but it was the biggest violator, which is not surprising given the secrecy surrounding donations that are under $200. For Obama's impressive $181 million haul in September, only two percent of the donations were reportable. In fact, donations under $50 don't even require campaigns to keep the name of the individual making the donation. Amplify that to a major scale and you have a scandal that's only familiar to Chicago thugs.
Details from the Washington Examiner:
Erick Ericson of RedState.com decided to test the donation system of the Obama campaign. With a fake name, address in Russia and passport, Erickson was able to make a donation to the campaign solely by having a valid credit card. This was rejected by the Romney campaign and basically every other online merchant (Amazon, Target, etc.).
The shocking part to all of this? The $5 donation sat with a "processing" label next to the charge for three days. And then it was rejected. But here's the kicker: Bank of America rejected the donation, not the Obama campaign. It was an evil Wall Street bank that determined something wasn't kosher and rejected the donation.
What does that say? The implication is that, using a disposable Visa gift card that acts as a credit card, for example, could allow illegal donations from foreigners. There's no doubt that this is the case - you don't get to a $1 billion campaign with over 8% unemployment without some trickery. This is what happened in 2008 and it's happening again. And expect big players, such as George Soros , to be deeply involved.
If the elite media did their job and weren't afraid of empty threats from the Obama campaign, there'd be one hell of a scandal owning the news headlines.
