Obama's Fraud

Steyn on Obama's fraudulent campaign donations.

On the grubby little racket of his online credit card fraud, Senator Obama merely has to run out the clock now. If it's not exposed before Tuesday, no one is going to have any appetite for investigating it once he's won.

First of all let's have a look at where it all fits in-

The Obama campaign has shattered presidential fundraising records, in part by capitalizing on the ease of online giving. Of the $150 million the senator from Illinois raised in September, nearly $100 million came in over the Internet.

But it's purely coincidental that the Obama campaign disabled every security check on their website, allowing fake names and addresses and even overseas donations. And as Steyn notes, claims that Obama's people are catching the fraudulent and illegal donations are pure bunk.

Almost every fraudulent donation sails through, and real money leaves real accounts. To give to Obama his fellow "citizens of the world" don't even have to pretend to be American. As detailed yesterday, Mr A Hitler of Berlin, Germany is only the most obvious fake donor to make a contribution and receive shortly afterwards a Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome email thanking him for joining the active community of community activists.

And here's another pertinent point-

this is part of a long pattern of behavior by Obama in which the noble ends of the Messiah's triumph justify any means.

I certainly recommend reading this too. For all his inexperience he certainly learned how politics in Chicago works.

At this stage it can certainly not have escaped his notice that his new brand of transparent politics is being accused of massive fraud- and yet the security features remain disabled and the campaign still refuses to release the names of donors giving less than $200. At the end of the day, he's the one claiming that running his campaign is proof positive of his ability to lead America- he should also realise then that, as the man in charge, the ultimate responsibility for this rests not with his staff but with him personally.

Apparently, using such obviously false names and addresses as A Hitler, Berlin, Germany, to show how corrupt Obama bin Laden's campaign donation machine is, disn't working. It's not causing the outrage that it should among voters, and Obomination has no shame, so it can't shame him into stopping. You guys may as well stop giving him the money.
