Rumors Swirl: How Bad
Will The Obama Foreign
Donor Scandal Be?

Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/7/2012 3:00:24 PM

Since last week, the news sphere has been buzzing about the possibility of an Obama campaign foreign donor scandal being the big October surprise of 2012. Since the Washington Examiner first reported the story last week, many are asking how the Obama campaign will handle foreign donation allegations expected to go public Monday in a major magazine and national website story. The Obama campaign has already tried to block the story from publication and although the details of the scandal are still under wraps, we do know taxes and unsecured credit card transactions are about to cause a major headache

Blow the 0bama campaign out of the water. I look forward to this story hitting tonight or early tomorrow on Drudge, the Wash. Examiner and the Daily Caller. Let's see if the press whores can ignore it once Drudge starts promoting it.

The house (Issa?) should subpoena everyone in the money chain- in and out of the Obama campaign.

Why wasn't this done after his campaign did this in 2008?

IMHO, they were smart to leave it alone in '08. The Regime and their propaganda media would have labeled Republicans racist sore losers and it would have gone nowhere. This is probably where it will do the most good.

I wonder if Obama reopened his phone banks in Gaza for this election?

Everyone, just make sure and check your debit and credit card statements. There were quite a few BO donations charged that people never made back in 2008. Of course by the time the bills arrived, it was too late.

Pretty sure it will be Newsweek. Which is significant because they campaigned hard for Barack Marshall Davis in '08. This is not 2008, a lot fewer people are drunk on BarackJuice. This will get some attention, I think (hope)

In 2008 tens of thousands of the donations to the Obama campaign--we saw longs lists of donation amounts online--were in odd penny amounts. Donors paying in dollars would just about always pay in even dollar amounts. Odd amounts were (and are) almost certainly in converted foreign currencies--illegal donations, in other words--that Obama enabled by deliberately turning off the portions of the software that would identify the origins of the donors.

There are monumental and deliberate campaign law violations going on here. Obama got away with it in 2008. He might not this year. When the light is shone on this cheating, some people in the Obama/DNC organizations will be headed to prison.

Might I also remind people that the house and senate were controlled by filibuster proof libtard majorities in 2008 - and the senate being still under their control has continued to block any substantive actions by the house that requires cooperation on the part of the senate.

Pre-paid, disposable credit cards? If so, a very strange phenomenon unlikely duplicated by any other campaign taking place in the country.

Very frustrating that the article doesn't name the magazine and Web site. I suspect that the impact on Obama will depend on who it is. If it's a "Republican" publication, such as National Review or The Washington Examiner, the article will be characterized as a partisan hit job and the impact will be minimal. But if it's Time, Newsweek or somesuch, with "liberal street cred," or (please! please!) the NY Times or the Washington Post or some other major MSM publication, then it could move the polls in Romney's favor by at least a point, maybe even more.

Also, if it's a "liberal" publication, it could signal that the MSM is getting a whiff of defeat for Obama and wants to save (or restore) its credibility.

I think it also will depend on whether the story "has legs" that keep the story going, or does it get buried quickly after the initial reporting. Does the publication stop with the allegations, or does it do independent checking to verify whether the allegations are true?

If the story is true, if the amounts are substantial and if the MSM stays on the story, it could doom the Obama campaign. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Should be easy to trace back the IP addresses of where they came from, unless, they are using a US middleman (which is highly illegal).

The software has the capability to filter the donations based on where they are coming from (their IP address), and block certain locations. Most Democrats ignore this US requirement that only US donations can be made.

That is why Clinton sold missile technology to China, had to pay back all those donations from the Chinese.

Same is going on for Obama, only it's probably coming from the Middle East this time !!!!

Time for subpoena's from the IT people involved!!! Start with them and work up the chain, at the very least, make them pay all of it back.....

Obama's been leaving off the 3 digit credit verification code on his web sites. Without that there's no way to verify the identity of the donor. You could go to his website, enter your card # and claim to be the queen of england and your donation would be accepted. No one else would ever do this, even Papa Johns makes you enter the code. What Obama is doing allows unlimited donations from the same credit card. I think this gets picked up by a major publication. Newsweek makes sense.

As bad as the potential scandal is,what's worse is Obama goons trying to stop the release of the details. We'll get a superficial account but the meat of the story will be blocked.

Hey--the guy and his feckless Secretary of State just let a US Ambassador get murdered and Brian Williams and NBC devote 5 mins to Big Bird instead of covering this story. Does anyone really think that the left wing media is going to cover any type of Obama scandal?
In 5 years they are going to say 'yeah we went easy on the guy -our bad' but until then nothing is going to change.

If the magazine is a conservative one expect it to make no difference at all. We must just wait and see......let's hope and pray that it's one of the left-leaning ones. Perhaps (big perhaps) then it may cause problems.

My fear is it will be World Net Daily (WND.com) and if that's the case even Fox News won't carry the story.
Newsweek or something similar makes sense because we have heard that the campaign has tried to block the stories release, that would not be the case if it was WND.
Just like 2008 it will be ignored. Or briefly covered with excuses why its untrue and then dropped, just like any other story negative to Obama.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
