The Washington Wire has the details of the latest cover-up coming in the Obama campaign donation scandal . Obama claims it’s all been a mix up. Plausible deniability? Not where there’s a smoking gun, in Gaza no less.
Monir Edwan (identified here) claimed he sold the T-shirts in Gaza for around $9 and that a profit was made.
"Some young men even bought the T-shirts for 60 shekel ($17.29), which is a lot to spend in Gaza on a T-shirt, but that is how much Gazans like Obama," Edwan claimed.
Obama campaign shipped shirts to Gaza? Shipping overseas is vastly different than the state next door.
How did the Edwan brothers get the tee shirts if Obama sent them to Georgia? Who from the campaign sent the tee shirts to Gaza? Obama is going to need a couple of days to come up with the next lie.
Obama Camp Routed Out Illegal Donations from Palestinians Washington Wire (hat tip Cathy)
Obama campaign officials said a trio of Palestinian brothers in the Middle
East attempted last year to make $33,000 in illegal donations to the campaign
via the internet.
The brothers sought to buy “Obama for President” T-shirts in some 97
attempts, 32 of which were initially successful.
They wrongly identified themselves as American citizens, campaign officials
said, and listed their address as “GA”, the abbreviation for Georgia, when in
fact they live in a refugee camp in Gaza, a rump city-state between Israel and
Egypt that is under the control of Hamas.
The donations came in between Sept. 20 and Dec. 6 and virtually all of the
money, about $33,500, was returned by December 6. But the refunds weren’t
reported to the Federal Election Commission due to a technical error, campaign
The remaining $2,500 was refunded Monday. The refunds will all be reflected
shortly in an amended report. New controls to prevent such attempts are now in
place, the campaign said.
This story is unnerving Obama and his pied piping media. They are running scared. They are desperately trying to find any donation dirt on McCain but it’s not there. Trust me I have been checking. The media is publishing inaccurate innuendo and rumor and then retracts not a day later. at the risk of looking stupid. They are jeopardizing the little cred they have left. GO HERE NOW
I have been pursuing this story since mid July an I will tell you Obama’s donation trail is as dirty Chicago politics. This is the left’s feeble attempt to head the trouble off at the pass. No way.
UPDATE: Now KOS is blaming WND for the "Palestinian" illegal donation story, calling it a set-up. How funny is that? I broke that story and Aaron Klein picked it up. Why isn’t KOS accusing me of being Mossad.
"It could be true that [donations] were made, but as a part of a
deliberate set-up to make Obama look bad. … Aaron Klein reports from
the Israel for WND. … Again, obviously if an actual illegal donation
was actually made it should be returned, but it would be interesting to
find out who really made it and why," reads an article on the Daily Kos
Wow. KOS is a real Jew hater, eh?
"By the way, Aaron Klein is clearly an [sic] conservative anti-Obama
reporter for the ultra-right-wing WorldNetDaily," the site contends.
In response, WND editor and publisher Joseph Farah commended the
Daily Kos team for "their imagination in suggesting WND actually set up
the Palestinian donations to the Obama campaign."
"That’s a good one! It was an elaborate sting operation by an
independent news source not feeding at the Obama media trough, says
Daily Kos. Talk about your twisted, convoluted conspiracy tales. …
Maybe WND was also behind the forged Obama birth certificate published
by Daily Kos.
"Making up these wacky stories shows the desperate lengths Daily Kos
will go to deny their beloved candidate would do anything wrong," Farah
Kill the messenger. Leftist tactics 101.
My first story on Obama’s bizarre and illegal activity posted July 19th on overseas contributions: Who is Jeanne McCurdy?
Other overseas contributors are making multiple
small donations ostensibly in their own names over a period of a few days, some under maximum
donation allowances, but others aggregating in excess of the maximums when all added up.
So while some of the contributions appear legal, others appear clearly
over the maximums allowed without greater reporting requirement. Some
of the contributions may bel egal as reported, but "fishy" can only
describe the Obama campaign reporting with regard to aggregate
contributions. 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,
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,
Tunis, Zacatecas, St, Croix, Mississiauga, Laval, Nadi, Behchoko,
DUBIA, Lima, Copenhagen, Quaama, Jeddah, Kabul, Cairo, Nassau(not the
on Long Island,lol), Luxembourg (Auchi’s stomping grounds),
etc,etc,etc, but nare ot limited to these countries, as we’ve have
just begun to read through
almost 500 pages.
500k donated by "not employed" people (overseas)
On July 23rd we addressed Obama’s bundling – that got Obama’s corruption eruption team into high gear.
My primary issue in that post concerns “bundling,”
the aggregation of small individual contributions, submitted for
verification for legality by the Obama campaign to the F.E.C. John and
I touched on this issue in my previous post, “Obama’s Foreign Contributions: Who is Jeanne McCurdy,” in which the bundling tactics of an Obama fund raiser named Jeanne McCurdy was disclosed.
We documented almost $800 worth of campaign contributions which
simply cannot be documented by anybody as to where they came from, or
from whom, or whether the persons were American citizens or perhaps
from person with interests violently opposed to American interests.
Kurth contributed $3,137.38 to the Obama Campaign in 112 donations,
including 34 separate donations recorded on 30-April-2008.
The history of anonymous donors from April of 2008, over
just 3 pages of F.E.C. records. In contributions from $1 to $250
–over $800 came into the Obama coffers completely without attribution,
and in a manner in which the sources can never be verified. The F.E.C. did absolutely nothing to regulate this.
