(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

Contributing campaign money to someone you despise? This is your clever plan?

corronchilejano: I just donated 1 dollar to the Mitt Romney campaing while being located in Bogota, Colombia, with a Colombian credit card:

So yeah, Romney has no such bullshiat in place. Thank you, have a good day.


Please tell me you posted this to WND comments.

Blowmonkey: This is ridiculous. What are they trying to prove here? They lied and said they lived in California and provided a corroborating zip code. Who cares where the IP said they were? They weren't there anyway. Should we be afraid that pakistani's using osama bin laden's name will donate $20 to Obama? Why?


Yeah, the whole problem of foreign money is how it would influence the candidate (I guess corporations are OK, though). How are you going to influence someone if they don't know who you are or where you are from?

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.


Because, of course, a donation service has the magical ability to determine the difference between a US citizen with a CA zip code donating while on vacation and a dickwad from WND.

Have you ever taken a programming class? Like, high-school level? You might want to try it.

OBAMA ACCEPTS 'OSAMA BIN LADEN' DONATIONS

Barack Obama, President and webmaster...

Oh, and FTFA:
The apparently foreign-based contributions were conducted as a test after a flurry of media reports described the ability of foreigners to donate to the Obama campaign but not to Mitt Romney's site, which has placed safeguards against such efforts.

One of the "media reports" in question:
Report: Romney's campaign better than Obama's at preventing foreign donations, but not perfect

Link

Sounds like WND thinks that because the Romeny camp asks if you're in the US and requires the security code from the credit card, that means that they are actively preventing foreign donations. Obama's site did just as much with the American citizen part by only giving options for US states and ZIP codes. Requiring the CVV just means that the person has the credit card in-hand, it has nothing to do with being foreign or not.

I know this goes without saying, but WND totally fails here.

The best riots will be in Chicago.

They'll reduce that park where Obama's coronation is being constructed to piles of rubble.

Detroit will come in a strong second, though. They're old pros at hell raisin'.

Dumbasses Romney sure as hell is taking foreign donations he is just funneling them through a middle man to hide their origin .

I don't think that the "Clinton Approach" works any more. People went to jail and Clinton was forced to return the money to the Chinese government.

It's almost as if WNDers are demanding some sort of certificate of authenticity for donations to Obama while NOT demanding the same proof for donations to Romney.

Sgt Otter: Slaxl: From the comments:

Drew Gasaway
Everything about binladens death is suspect including that no one alive saw his body and how the seal team members died right after the raid.

Wait, now there's some conspiracy theory that all the Seal team members were bumped off after the raid? That would have to be the worst conspiracy theory ever, as one has written a book... and i'm sure a quick Googling could answer for the others.

There was a helicopter crash that killed a number of SEALs not long after the bin Laden raid. The U.S. military has REPEATEDLY stated that they were from a different SEAL platoon than the guys who killed OBL.

That's probably what this idiot is thinking of.

I think you're confusing the 1996 financing controversy (Chinese financiers funneling money from the Chinese government) with the time (also in 1996) Al Gore had to return money to the Hsi Lai Temple (donations accrued during a temple visit fundraiser being reimbursed to the temple, violating the non-profit donation ban)

Nope. I am talking about the Clinton election and the "1996 financing controversy." The go-between was Johnny Chung and if you read the wikipedia article I linked in this post you will see that it says that the democrats returned the money to the Chinese.

Upon observing the information that you entered, I do not understand why you believe your test comparable to WorldNetDaily's test. WorldNetDaily used the name of a known terrorist and supplied a ZIP code that, while valid, is a reference to September 11. You supplied the name "NOT A TERRORIST" and a ZIP code that is not a reference to September 11. Clearly, the two submissions are entirely different, and thus establishes proof that President Obama's campaign is willfully accepting money from anti-american foreign agencies while Mr. Mitt Romney's campaign is a beleaguered underdog struggling to attract voters despite their utter refusal to engage in unethical or illegal practices.

Well they were both part of the 1996 financing controversy, I just missed the part about returning all the money in the Chung scandal as well. Good on the DNC, though there wasn't much choice in the matter. Either way, calling either the "Clinton approach" is a bit ridiculous. Clinton has an approach alright, but the business end of it is a moist cigar.

Here's the thing that gets me... WND is essentially saying that American citizens traveling abroad for ANY reason should not be allowed to donate to political campaigns. This would include diplomats, businessmen, vacationers, and MILITARY SERVICEMEN.

Why does WND hate our military?
 
2012-10-30 04:45:01 PM

Jgok: Why does WND hate our military?


Before being censored and threatened with bodily harm from WND forumgoers, one of them claimed to be serving right now and unable to donate at the time. Maybe for the best.

Dear advertiser,
I connected to your site via an ad on wnd.com. Worldnetdaily has been identified as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center. While best known as the most severe of the "birther" sites, believing that the president is not an American born citizen, wnd also frequently tries to establish that the president is the anti-christ. This is not an honest difference of opinion. Wnd is morally abhorrent.
Are you aware of where your ads are placed? Are you also advertising on nazi, white supremacy, and pedophilia sites?
Please favor me with a reply.
