THIS STORY HAS LEGS, OTHER BLOGS DON’T CITE ATLAS – BUT IT BROKE HERE FIRST yesterday 6:-01 pm
UPDATE: JUST IN FROM RNC: (hat tip Mark)
The Republican National Committee (RNC) today filed a supplement to its complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against the Obama for America campaign addressing its acceptance of foreign national and excessive contributions, donations from unknown sources, and demonstrated lack of oversight or concern for compliance with the law. The complaint demonstrates that the Obama campaign has failed to comply with federal campaign finance law in its fundraising. RNC Chief Counsel Sean Cairncross released the following statement today concerning the supplement to the complaint: “Based on numerous press accounts that have come to light since our initial filing in early October, it is clear that the Obama for America campaign is operating outside of the law. The complete and total lack of any control mechanisms within the Obama campaign’s fundraising operation has undermined any confidence in their ability to curtail excessive, foreign, and fraudulent contributions and demands immediate attention from the Federal Election Commission (FEC).”

UPDATE 11:08 pm: Washington Post reports Woman’s Credit Card Charged $175,000 to Obama.
This is a part of Obama’s financial donating money laundering.
There is enormous amount of money being secreted into the Obama campaign from foreign sources. It is fairly safe to say these countries will be richly rewarded – Kenya, Indonesia but most of all – Obama will drop a load on the UN. Fosho.
The crooked, corrupt international one world global warmers have the largest stake in this election.
Back on August 14th, I wrote that Julia
Gorin told me a funny story. About four months ago. Her husband’s
co-worker wanted to see what would happen if he tried giving a
contribution to the Obama campaign via a credit card. He used his
Macy’s card. The system accepted it. He tried the same with McCain’s
campaign, and the transaction wouldn’t go through.
Atlas reader Craig submits to me the following,
I may have just uncovered how
the Obama campaign is facilitating massive donation fraud.
I’ve read recent reports of the
Obama campaign receiving donations from dubious names and foreign locales and it
got me wondering; how is this possible?
I run a small internet business
and when I process credit cards I’m required to make sure the name on the card
exactly matches the name of the customer making the purchase. Also, the
purchasers address must match that of the cardholders. If these don’t match,
then the payment isn’t approved. Period. So how is it possible that the Obama
campaign could receive donations from fictional people and places? Well, I
decided to do a little experiment. I went to the Obama campaign website and
entered the following:
Address: 1957 Ayn Rand
Then I checked the box next to
$15 and entered my actual credit card number and expiration date (it didn’t ask
for the 3-didgit code on the back of the card) and it took me to the next page
donation has been processed. Thank
you for your generous gift.”
This simply should not, and
could not, happen in any business or any campaign that is honestly trying to vet
it’s donors. Also, I don’t see how this could possibly happen without the
collusion of the credit card companies. They simply wouldn’t allow any business
to process, potentially, hundreds of millions in credit card transactions where
the name on the card doesn’t match the purchasers name.
Not unless Obama’s campaign is warehousing donations (held back) and any that fail or are rejected by the credit card companies or for any other reason are covered by illegal donations.
In short, with the system set up
as it is by the Obama camp, an individual could donate unlimited amounts of
money by simply making up fake names and addresses. And Obama is doing his best
to facilitate this fraud. This is truly scandalous.
Yes, and then cover them with illegal funds.
PS I tried the exact same thing
at the McCain site and it didn’t allow the transaction.
Pss I went back to the Obama
site and made three additional donations using the names Osama Bin Laden, Saddam
Hussein and Bill Ayers, all with different addresses. All the transactions went
thru using the same credit card. I saved screen shots of the transactions if you

Cathy found this at Free Republic:
Somebody, high up, has access to millions of credit card, and possibly
debit card accounts.
This is how it works: An apparent charge appears on your account, then
through the correction process, it disappears. An unauthorized charge
delivers the funds to control of an intermediary, and the intermediary
then reimburses the original draft on the account. The intermediary is
a wealthy consortium of manipulators, who take the small contribution
(always less than $200, so as to avoid the reporting requirements of
name and occupation of the original source), thus providing hundreds of
thousands, or even millions, of “contributors”, and allowing ineligible
contributors to cover up their participation. It would take the
research of literally thousands of these accounts to uncover the
pattern of “mistaken” charges, and if these accounts are held outside
the US, there would be no overview of these transaction by any of the
authorities that govern these transfers in this country. The only check
on this is to review your own account, and those who had their accounts
used in this manner. If individuals or corporate entities are already
supporting Obama, or the Democrat National party, or any of the 527s
that are anti-Republican, THEY are not going to say anything.
UPDATE: Craig sent the SCREENSHOTS and notes that on Obama’s site you can self-select whether you’re
a domestic or international donor. Thus, any foreigner could simply fill out the
form the way I did as long as they use a credit card.
This is how Qaddafi donates :)

Atlas exclusive coverage of Obama’s contributions: foreign, domestic, illegal
UPDATE: fro Mccain’s website, Cathy grabbed this screenshot – On the form:
The address below must match your
credit card billing information and they ask for your security code too.
UPDATE: Cathy caught this in comment section:
Having worked for companies that process credit cards
online, it is necessary to go through and manually disable the
safeguards that they put in place to verify a person’s address and zip
code with the cardholder’s bank. But international banks don’t
currently have the same safeguards that banks in the US have, which
also works in the One’s favor.
So most likely they’ve disabled the necessary safeguards for US cards
which their merchant bank would be angry about if they found out since
it exposes them to risk, as well as international cards which is an
even greater risk because there’s no way to verify the information
electronically for most countries, so they could just say they’re in
the US with phony info and the card will still process online. The One
could then just claim that they said they were from America.
Senator Clinton’s website worked with a reputable company that had
the same safeguards in place for her online donations, seems like
someone just doesn’t like to play by the rules that credit card
companies have put in place.
