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.

In a potential political bombshell, a non-partisan  watchdog group released a report pointing out irregularities in the Obama Campaign’s online donation system.  These irregularities seem to point to the possibility that the campaign is accepting foreign donations.  Instapundit has the details…

SCANDAL: Bombshell: Obama.com Owned by Bundler in Shanghai with Business Ties to Chinese Government.

In an explosive report set to send shockwaves through official Washington, the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) released a 108-page GAI investigation into the threat of foreign and fraudulent Internet campaign donations in U.S. federal elections (visit campaignfundingrisks.com to download the full report).

Breitbart News obtained an advance copy of the bombshell report which reveals that the Obama.com website is not owned by the president’s campaign but rather by Obama bundler Robert Roche, a U.S. citizen living in Shanghai, China. Roche is the chairman of a Chinese infomercial company, Acorn International, with ties to state-controlled banks that allow it to “gain revenue through credit card transactions with Chinese banks.”

There’s more.

The unusual Obama.com website redirects traffic directly to a donation page on the Obama campaign’s official website, my.barackobama.com, which does not require donors tob enter their credit card security code (known as the CVV code), thereby increasing the likelihood of foreign or fraudulent donations. The website is managed by a small web development firm, Wicked Global, in Maine. One of Wicked Global’s employees, Greg Dorr, lists on his LinkedIn page his additional employment with Peace Action Maine and Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights. According to the GAI report, 68 percent of all Internet traffic to Obama.com comes from foreign visitors.

And still more.

In 2011, Mr. Roche obtained one of the most sought-after pieces of real estate in Washington, DC: a seat at the head table for President Obama’s State Dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao. How Roche—a man whose infomercial company hawks fitness equipment, cell phones, and breast enhancement products—landed a seat alongside Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, Sen. John Kerry, former President Jimmy Carter, and Chinese President Hu Jintao remains unclear.

Since 2009, White House Visitor Logs list the name Robert Roche at least 19 times, despite the fact Mr. Roche’s primary residence is in China.

This seems to stink to high heaven, but out MSM is out doing the bidding of the POTUS, so we’re not going to hear about this on the news anytime soon.

Ironically, this is the very thing that the POTUS himself lamented during his 2010 State of the Union Address.  Here is a clip.

So, we see, once again, typical regressive hypocrisy.  They cry about something happening  and then, it appears that they are doing it themselves.

Categorize this under the following:  You will always know what the Democrats are up to based on what their accusing their opposition of doing.
