Several blogs are carrying this story about the FEC beginning an investigation into funding fraud during the 2008 election. I believe that it will be fraud that will bring Østupid down. There are many ways in which the fraud has been perpetrated, including the possibility that the SSN was fraudulently obtained. However, of all the indications of fraud, this one is the strongest, so long as the FEC is not forced to back down from its investigations.
As you are aware, overseas entities are not allowed to donate to an election campaign (in the USA or elsewhere for that matter). Despite what you have been told, overseas companies are still not allowed to donate to Presidential or other political campaigns. Those particular clauses were not struck down in the Citizens United case (but you would never know that it was the case because of the deliberate obsfucation of the facts by the Demrats). Well this investigation is not about overseases organisations donating to the Østupid election fund, but of individuals in the Middle East donating funds, and having their donations bundled so that the donation money had been laundered.
I add here that Hillary Clinton got into trouble for accepting funds from overseas individuals in some of her campaigns. The money was refunded.
Here is a snippet written by Pamela Geller on the subject of the illegal campaign donations:
Obama’s 2008 campaign finance records are full of riddles, mysteries, and unanswered questions. Contributing nearly $25,000 to the Obama campaign was Monir Edwan, who was listed on FEC documents as contributing from the city of Rafah in the state “GA.” Georgia? No – there is no Rafah in the Peach State. Monir Edwan sent money to Obama from Rafah, Gaza.
Rafah is a Gaza refugee camp.
The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) “prohibits any foreign national from contributing, donating or spending funds in connection with any federal, state, or local election in the United States, either directly or indirectly. It is also unlawful to help foreign nationals violate that ban or to solicit, receive or accept contributions or donations from them. Persons who knowingly and willfully engage in these activities may be subject to fines and/or imprisonment.”[i]
Yet no one has found it noteworthy that Barack Hussein Obama himself appears to be in violation of this statute.
According to the FEC, contributions to the Obama campaign from three brothers, Osama, Monir and Hosam Edwan, all from Rafah, totaled $33,000.[ii] And they weren’t alone. Al-Jazeera reported on March 31, 2008 that Gazans were manning phone banks for the Obama campaign.[iii]
