Barack Obama’s campaign’s ineffective policing of its small dollar donations — which add up to $200 million — has all the makings of a Clinton style fundraising scandal, so it should be interesting to watch whether the FEC acts on the RNC’s complaint on the matter. The fact that donors who give under $200 aren’t publicly disclosed opens the door for abuse and worse, the ability of foreign donors to influence U.S. elections.
As Newsweek reports in a short item:
Newsweek also notes the tale of the two Gazan brothers who bought $33,000 of t-shirts from the Obama online store.
The amazing thing is that before being called on it, the Obama campaign was accepting online donations from foreign addresses. So basically, if you were a foreign national who had a Visa card, you could go online and donate $199 dollars to the campaign without it drawing scrutiny.
