The National Journal shows more in-depth review on how this is being done. Along with the exposure of 37,000+ unverified donors from the FEC database contributing amounts ending in odd cents (yeah, weird, huh?) that are likely amounts found when being converted from other currencies. While that is not illegal as long as the donor is verified to be an American citizen (such as verifying a passport number) that's a large number of people, 60,000 contributions amounting to nearly $63 million dollars in donations.

Check this one out Neet


Despite dropping the groundbreaking bombshell story of "Palestinian" brothers from the Rafah refugee camp in Gaza who donated $33,000 to Obama's campaign, no big media picked up the story. Jihadis donating to Obama from Gaza? Could there be a bigger story? Foreign donations are illegal, but this story was all that and so much more. The "Palestinian" brothers were proud and vocal of their "love" for Obama. Their vocal support on behalf of "Palestinians" spoke volumes to Obama's campaign.

And yet still no media.

But Obama pricked up his ears. He smelled trouble and while no media asked, he answered anyway. Sen. Obama's campaign immediately scrambled and contended they had returned the $33,500 in illegal contributions from Palestinians in Hamas-controlled Gaza, despite the fact that records do not show that it was returned and the brothers said they have not received any money. Having gone through all of Obama's refunds redesignations etc, no refund was made to Osama, Hossam, or Edwan Monir in the Rafah refugee camp. And still no media.

Lets just say, this election will be "bought". And we will suffer the consequences.
