Now this is rich. I thought there was honor among thieves. Apparently not. Aaron Klein, in an update to the story I broke last week about Obama receiving contributions from Gaza, is reporting that despite Obama’s claims that he just returned the money, The "Paelstinians" decry lie! Can you spell blackmail? I wonder what it’s going to cost Obama, you know the Gazans don’t play fair.
Obama said new controls are in place to prevent any similar attempts
in the future. New controls? Like what? Shutting down anti- Obama sites?
Candidate’s staffers insist Gaza brothers refunded, but men say, ‘We did not receive any money back’
The Wall Street Journal reported
it spoke to Obama officials who said the donations from three
Palestinian brothers were received between Sept. 20 and Dec. 6 last
year, and virtually all of the money was returned by Dec. 6. The
campaign said, however, the refunds were not reported to the Federal
Election Commission due to a technical error.
The Obama camp insisted the remaining $2,500 was refunded Monday and
all of the refunds will be reflected soon in an amended report. The
campaign said new controls are in place to prevent any similar attempts
in the future.
But WND asked two of the brothers – Monir and Hasam Edwan – to respond to the campaign’s claims.
"No, we did not receive any money back from the Obama campaign at any time," said Monir Edwan.
Last week, the blog Atlas Shrugs outlined the series of donations made last year by Monir Edwan and Hosam Edwan, totaling $29,521.54. A third brother, Yousef, reportedly gave the campaign about $4,000.
