(WorldNetDaily)   World Net Daily crows about how they committed fraud by donating to Obama's campaign under the false name "Osama Bin Laden". Oh, and they donated money to Obama's campaign, too. Looks like they didn't think their cunning plan through at all   (wnd.com) divider line 191

This one made me start laughing maniacally.

Truth be told, this is small peanuts compared to previous fraud by the DNC.

Remember Johnny Chung, the guy who went to jail for funneling $366,000.00 from the Chinese military into Bill Clinton's election campaign? (In that case, the democrats did give the money back to the Chinese government after Chung went to jail for this.)

In short, I'm not concerned about a foreign national spending $5 or $10 on a campaign. It's illegal and it should be stopped, but it's not the end of the world. But when a foreign government does it, I get very concerned.

Kangaroo_Ralph: What's shocking is what the subby and many of you farkers took away from the article.

Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address, "Osama bin Laden" has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama's presidential re-election campaign.

That doesn't bother you in the slightest. Enjoy the koolaid.


Yes. It bothers me that WND is committing wire fraud.

LOL. Nice work adding the cents in that figure, it makes it look 100x what is really was.
 
2012-10-30 09:49:31 AM

uberlemming: Given their scenario, they're saying no American citizen should be able to donate to a campaign from outside of the country. Wonder who would do that? Military members maybe? Yeah that's a great idea, WND, you should come out and say you don't want any American living abroad to be able to donate to a campaign back home.


I'm not in the military, but I am a US citizen who's currently living overseas and has donated to the Obama campaign. I'm sure they think that removing my ability to do that is a great idea; they aren't capable of studying minor details like "Many soldiers lean Republican," they only see "THAT DIRTY LIB OVER THERE GAVE FIFTY BUCKS TO THE NI-*BONG*."
 
2012-10-30 09:49:50 AM
I love how they're like "Ohh, their review system is totally broken if a dead terrorist in Pakistan can make a donation!" They probably saw that address "911 Jihad Way, Abbattabad, CA 91101" and thought "Someone's f*cking with us, whatever, $15 is $15."

You said concern twice.

How concerned are you over the billions being funneled to the campaigns by a small number of powerful business interests? Any concern there or do only get concerned about small special interest spending?
 
2012-10-30 09:50:12 AM
Wow, the right isn't even TRYING to explain why we should vote for Romney anymore. They're just gonna flail away at Obama and try to convince us not to vote for him. So...Gary Johnson?
 
2012-10-30 09:50:42 AM
I must have missed the part in the article where WND sent money to the Romney campaign under a false name and had it immediately rejected.

Sure it's probably there somewhere in the back or something.

The Only Jeff: StarSys: Who committed the real fraud? They clicked a button swearing that they were a US citizen and that they were from California. They make it seem like a real human would read over the address and see if that part was real.

Allegedly, Romney's website prevents that from happening.


In other words, Romney's website actively restricts the free speech of US Citizens abroad.

Heh.

LowbrowDeluxe: I've sat here thinking and thinking trying to figure out what I'm supposed to be outraged about, and I'm stumped. I'm just not seeing it. Help me out here.


"Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address, "Osama bin Laden" has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama's presidential re-election campaign."

All three of those factors would have disqualified the donation (or at least raised a red flag) for most campaigns because they have safeguards in place. But the Obama campaign labels the donor as a volunteer, and continues to ask for additional donations. 

Do you think this is the only fraudulent or illegal donation that has been given to the Obama campaign? Does it even matter to you? Would $1 billion in $199 increments from terrorists bother you? Ask yourself why Obama doesn't employ the same safeguards as other campaigns.

Or just stop thinking. It doesn't seem to be doing you any good.

The blase attitude here is pretty typical of Liberals who are caught violating the law.

Obama's campaign is accepting foreign donations in direct violation of campaign finance laws. WND donated $20 as a test. Who's to say that someone else didn't donate $20k?

WND is saying that the campaign isn't even doing basic filtering of foreign donations (via IP addresses).

So we have a campaign that isn't bothering to follow the law...just like an administration that goes off and kills americans overseas without trial. Yay! We support human rights - except for people we don't like.

Typical leftist hypocrisy. I'm not saying the right doesn't have their hypocrites. They do. But they're not as stupid as the left - they at least know they're being hypocrites.

Are you one of those "children of the world" types who think that nationality is passe?

Because there is a world of difference between an American involving himself in the American electoral process and a foreigner illegally involving himself in the American electoral process.

We can argue about changing the laws if you wish, but to pretend that all humans are Americans is a ridiculous stance to take, son.

I'm suggesting your faux concern is entirely dishonest and based solely on party politics. But you're right. It's not comparable. The Kochs are a much, much greater threat to democracy than the Chinese military could ever dream of being.

Because freedumb. What are you anyway, some sort of Hitlerbama McFartypants?

So you think that some Americans chip in too much money into the political system and you propose that the "fix" for this situation is to allow foreigners to buy into our election process too?

I hope you can see why people would think that you were trolling when you post an opinion like that.

Right. Because using one proxy from one of the most unsecure parts of the world is not easy enough to uncover.

WND probably picked up viruses on there Windows XP machine running IE7 to run the transaction.

And how is accepting this money any worse than accepting money from Adelson? That man is an economic terrorist and still alive. For now.

It looks to like WND is run by people spreading terror to further their own cause. If only there was a word for this . . . we should create a website dedicated to fighting it.

The article is bad enough, but the 1000+ derp-filled comments make me wanna fist my computer.

Apparently all the voting machines are rigged to only vote for Obama. And he is the only one who received any corporate campaign dollars. I guess Romney's running on pocket change and prayers?

The fact that the $19 you fraudulently donated (and only to the one campaign you don't like) was not investigated is not an outrage.

Maybe if you made a bigger donation people would be more shocked, but if you did that you might get caught and invalidate your entire article.
