Money Scandal

I'm too tired and too stupid to do much more than just link to this. But I seem to remember whispers of HUGE HUGE HUGE scandals in money laundering and loss of tracking and potentially millions of small foreign donations last time and no one gave a rat's ass.

Hope this time someone actually makes a story of this.

Pretty freaking arrogant of him to do it again. But we are talking Obama here.......

Report: National magazine preparing “blockbuster” scandal story on Obama campaign donations

If the term “Doodad Pro” means anything to you, none of this will come as a surprise.
President Obama reelection campaign, rattled by his Wednesday night debate performance, could be in for even worse news. According to knowlegable sources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.
Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday.
According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.

I'd like to think information like this has him peeing down his leg. I wonder what it must be like to spend your whole life believing that you don't have to follow the rules, that the rules follow you, and then learning -- in front of the entire world -- that it doesn't always work that way.

Sort of like Saddam when they dragged him out of the spidey hole.



  1. This reflects on the United States. Foreign countries either are appalled, and wonder about the effect on their nation, or overjoyed to see they have an easy method to influence U.S. politics.

    Now, the big question is how the media responds. A response of investigative, accurate reporting only brings up the failure to do the same in the past. I'd say they've stepped in it and the smell won't go away for a long, long time.

    1. You've nailed it, Jess, on this and other issues. They are all entwined.

      The media is so in that bag for this guy, and it is becoming so ridiculously obvious, that they are even MORE likely to double down. To do otherwise is to parade themselves before the world as whores and losers. They won't do it. They HAVE to maintain their stance, just to get in front of the cameras every day. No switching horses now.

  2. Now the big question-
    Are they investigating the illegal contributions of THIS election, or are they finally getting around to the illegal contributions of the LAST election?
