Apparently, the Obama Campaign is Accepting Foreign Donations


In a story that DIDN’T break, the Obama Campaign was caught accepting foreign donations.  The NY Post has more…

The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign donation in violation of the law — and does nothing to check on the provenance of millions of dollars in other contributions, a watchdog group alleges.

Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to knowingly solicit or accept money from foreign citizens.

Walker said he used his actual street address in England but entered Arkansas as his state with the Schenectady, NY, ZIP code of 12345.

“When I did Romney’s, the payment got rejected on the grounds that the address on the card did not match the address that I entered,” he said. “Romney’s Web site wanted the code from the back of card. Barack Obama’s didn’t.”

In case you missed it, I did note that this story DIDN’T break.  And, if you recall, we covered this story a week or two ago, when it was noted that verification codes were not taken by the Obama Campaign, and the the President himself cynically decried foreign donations during the 2010 STFU speech.

Apparently, the MSM is going to take a pass on this, but I would imagine it would lead every broadcast if the Romney camp had done he same.
