Lots of Change You Can Believe In-$250 Million Worth

Bob Robbins has forwarded a Newsmax article which states that:

"A Newsmax analysis of the 1.4 million individual contributions in the latest master file for the Obama campaign discovered 1,000 separate entries for Mr. Good Will, most of them for $25...Mr. Good Will listed his employer as “Loving” and his profession as “You.” In total, Mr. Good Will gave $17,375...Similarly, a donor identified as “Pro, Doodad,” from “Nando, NY,” gave $19,500 in 786 separate donations, most of them for $25. For most of these donations, Mr. Doodad Pro listed his employer as “Loving” and his profession as “You,” just as Good Will had done."

"With such lax vetting of foreign contributions, the Obama campaign may have indirectly contributed to questionable fundraising by foreigners. In July and August, the head of the Nigeria’s stock market held a series of pro-Obama fundraisers in Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city. The events attracted local Nigerian business owners. At one event, a table for eight at one fundraising dinner went for $16,800. Nigerian press reports claimed sponsors raked in an estimated $900,000...In June, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi gave a public speech praising Obama, claiming foreign nationals were donating to his campaign... A pair of Palestinian brothers named Hosam and Monir Edwan contributed more than $31,300 to the Obama campaign in October and November 2007, FEC records show."

"More than half of the whopping $426.9 million Barack Obama has raised has come from small donors whose names the Obama campaign won't disclose."

In a different e-mail, Andy Martin writes:

"I was smacked in the face by recent reports that Obama has raised almost a quarter of a billion dollars, almost $250 million, of clandestine campaign cash whose origins Obama has never disclosed. This amount is unbelievable and appears to reflect clear criminal intent to evade federal campaign contribution limitations.

"How does Obama think he can hide a quarter of a billion dollars by labeling the origins as 'petty cash?' Where are the mainstream media? Bothering Sarah Palin?

"I have asked General Mukasey, the Chicago U. S. Attorney and the FBI to open an investigation into the identities and sources of this secret cash. If the cash hoard is legal, we have a right to know. If the cash is tainted or even criminal, we also have a right to know, before the election, not afterwards. The American People should not have a 'pig in a poke' to vote for on November 4th."

Diogenes, you are unbelievable. I suggest you go to:
the Federal court has denied BO's motion to dismiss. You best keep an eye on the filing in PA. You may be VERY disappointed VERY soon.
And we DO have a right to know where his funds are coming from, and we WILL have answers to that as well. Just because you "wish" everything was on the "up-and-up" with BO, doesn't mean it is. Prepare your own "tinfoil hat"!

"Diogenes" (who lacks the courage to reveal who he is) repeatedly uses insulting and vituperative language (calling me, for example "Mr. Tin Foil"). I am removing his posts until he learns to discuss issues in a civil, non-insulting manner.

Other posters, especially anonymous ones, are advised that insulting or vituperative language, especially where it lacks a point, will be deleted. This is a blog, not a bar.

>"If truth is on your side, mairi, how come Lt. Tinfoil deleted my earlier post? Because I had the temerity to poke some tiny pinholes into his overinflated ego?

"Life isn't that simple, Mitchie, the Tin Foil Warrior. You can't just delete everyone who disagrees with you and calls you out as the egotistical fool that you are.

This site belongs to Mitchell. We are adults here and always appreciate interesting "conversation". Many others post here who do not necessarily agree. They are treated respectfully, just as those of us who do hold like opinions prefer to be treated. If you cannot be civil and conduct yourself appropriately, guess what.....this is HIS site. If you can't handle honest discussion, start your OWN site! Doubt there will be many visitors if your online etiquette doesn't change.
