Obama’s Campaign Finance Scandals

“I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities.”
Nima Reza, “President Takes a Swing at the Supreme Court,” CitizenLink. “Obama accepting cash from untraceable prepaid credit cards,” Washinton Post, Oct. 28, 2008.

Palestinian brothers from the Rafah refugee camp in Gaza donated $33,000 to Obama’s campaign. Obama said he returned the cash, but no record of return was made to Osama, Hossam, or Edwan Monir in the Rafah refugee camp.  Obama’s overseas (foreign) contributors made multiple small donations, ostensibly in their own names, over a period of a few days, some under maximum donation allowances, but others aggregated in excess of the maximums when all added up. The countries and major cities from which contributions have been received: France, Virgin Islands, Planegg, Vienna, Hague, Madrid, London, AE, IR, Geneva,Tokyo, Bangkok, Turin, Paris, Munich, Madrid, Roma, Zurich, Netherlands, Moscow, Ireland, Milan, Singapore, Bejing, Switzerland, Toronto, Vancouver, La Creche, Pak Chong, Dublin, Panama, Krabi, Berlin, Geneva, Buenos Aires, Prague, Nagoya, Budapest, Barcelona, Sweden, Taipei, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, Zurich, Ragusa, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Uganda, Mumbia, Nagoya, Tunis, Zacatecas, St, Croix, Mississauga, Laval, Nadi, Behchoko, Ragusa, DUBIA, Lima, Copenhagen, Quaama, Jeddah, Kabul, Cairo, Nassau, Luxembourg. Half a million dollars had been donated from overseas  by unidentified people  “not employed.”

Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign allowed donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor’s identity, campaign officials confirmed.

President Obama said, “The Supreme Court has given a green light to a new stampede of special interest money in our politics.”
Sean Hannity, “Obama Flip-Flops over Campaign Finance,” Fox News, Jan. 25, 2010.

Obama is the first major presidential candidate ever to forego public financing in a presidential election. He received huge amounts of money from special interest groups. He spent more campaign money than any presidential candidate in U.S. history.
