All the President’s Funny Money

Pages: 1 2

Subsequent digging by conservative bloggers found that the Obama campaign’s donor website appeared to intentionally disable security protocols and facilitate illegal donations with bogus names, shell addresses and untraceable credit cards. Among Obama’s online “donors”: Bart Simpson, Family Guy, Daffy Duck, King Kong, O.J. Simpson, Mr. Doodad Pro, John Galt, Della Ware, Crazy Eight and Adolfe Hitler.

— Social justice funny money. In 2008, the Obama campaign wrote checks totaling more than $800,000 to a nonprofit offshoot of ACORN called Citizens Services Inc. The campaign claimed the money went to nonpartisan get-out-the-vote services. But receipts showed the funds paid for polling, advance work and event staging supplied by a nonprofit that supposedly does simple canvassing work on behalf of low-income people. The FEC allowed Obama to wave his magic wand and amend the records to change political expenses into non-political ones. As a Republican National Committee staffer commented at the time: “For a candidate who claims to be practicing ‘new’ politics, his FEC reports look an awful lot like the ‘old-style’ Chicago politics of yesterday.”

On a related front, ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief filed an FEC complaint last year over illegal coordination between ACORN and the Obama campaign. MonCrief publicly released Obama donor lists supplied to ACORN affiliate Project Vote, which were allegedly used to target maxed-out presidential donors. The scheme involved converting the expenditures by Project Vote, ACORN and ACORN-affiliated entities to illegal, excessive corporate contributions to the Obama presidential campaign, in violation of federal law.

Nothing to see here, move along? The only “routine” business as usual being conducted here is Chicago-style self-exemption business as usual: Rules are for fools. Let the crooked cash flow in.

    Hey, it was good enough for the Clintons, so why not this clown too?

    My teenagers want to know what the law would give'
    OBAMA as a penalty for his numerous crimes against
    our country
    Would the taking of the OATH be the biggest of his
    many many crimes?
    Would this be considered one of the gravest crimes
    committed within the borders of our wonderful country?

      Tell your teenagers to open a book and study. Tell them Obama's opponents know many lawyers and people in high places, and none of these people have found anything actionable, or rest assure, they'd act swiftly. And then pray to God that hopefully, one day, they'll be able to think their way out of the blind ignorance you've been torturing them with.

    You're right, Michelle, he should be punished, just like Bush was punished for ignoring a catastrophe in New Orleans, for lying about WMD's, for leading the U.S. into a trillion dollar war, for allowing the NSA to spy without warrants (where IS the tea party?), for torturing people through 'Long Time Standing' and waterboarding, for kidnapping people in Italy, and for supporting Greenspan policies that allowed the rich to get richer and the poor to fend for themselves. Oh that's right, HE WASN'T!!!

      Let's see…

      The Democrat governor of Louisiana and the Democrat mayor or New Orleans initially communicated to the Bush administration they had everything under control.

      Clinton's administration and the British government said Saddam had WMDs. And there is information, pretty much completely ignored by the MSM, in documents that have been released by one Mr. Julian Assaunge (sp?) that shows that we found lots of material useful in the construction of various types of WMDs.

      If you were really paying attention (I kind of get the impression you weren't) the original justification for the Iraqi war was to enforce 17 UN resolutions Saddam had ignored.

      The NSA spying was primarily against foreign al Qaeda agents calling their buddies here.

        More…

        Torture… hmm, members of our military undergo waterboarding similar to what was done to KSM and a few others, so, when done to our guys it's okay, but we're not even allowed to look cross-eyed at someone who probably has lots of info about more attacks against Americans.

        Kidnapping people in Italy… kinda looks like you got me there.

        Monetary policies to let people get rich… I didn't realize that was illegal; isn't that what the United States is supposed to be about.
