Obama Still Collecting Illegal Contributions

--posted by Tony Garcia on 10/29/2012

It has been pointed a number of times recently that Obama's campaign has been taking illegal contributions. There is no grey area. All foreign contributions are illegal.

In spite of it being pointed out (and the mainstream media saying nothing, by the way) there have been no corrections to the problem.
Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address, “Osama bin Laden” has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign.
The acceptance of foreign contributions is strictly illegal under U.S. campaign finance law.

One $15 donation was made at BarackObama.com using a confirmed Pakistani IP address. In other words, as far as the campaign website was concerned, the donation was openly identified electronically as coming from Pakistan.
Before people get their panties in a bunch these tests have also been done on Romney's site...and that campaign is interested in following the law above the drive to collect money to try to win. The apparently foreign-based contributions were conducted as a test after a flurry of media reports described the ability of foreigners to donate to the Obama campaign but not to Mitt Romney’s site, which has placed safeguards against such efforts. In other words there is a respect for the law on one side and not on the other side.
Since the “foreign” contribution was sent, “Bin Laden’s” email address has received several solicitations from Obama’s campaign asking for more donations.
What is interesting about the email solicitations is that they have been reported to request an amount that keeps the donor $5 below the aggregate amount that would require demographic collection, proof of identity and mandatory reporting of all of that.

Circumstantial, sure, but enough individual car on a track make a train. Enough circumstantial evidence in a row is intent.

Obama's campaign seems to know they are collecting illegal contributions and attemptin to not just keep the funds but leverage them for more illegal contributions.
