A PowerLine reader writes in that he successfully made a contribution to Barack Obama online after entering the following information:
Name: John Galt
Address: 1957 Ayn Rand Lane
City: Galts Gulch
Meanwhile Patrick Ruffini reports that he was able to contribute to Obama using a wrong address, and suggests that the Obama campaign has weak security settings on its address verification system, leaving itself open to easy abuse.
Considering that Obama has raised more than $600 million, about half of it in donations of under $200,
and that he has broken records for online fundraising, this issue deserves far more scrutiny that it has thus far received.
