Where is Obama’s Campaign Money Coming From?

That’s a very good question. For the sources of nearly half of Obama’s campaign donations don’t appear in Obama’s fundraising reports. (Yes, small donors don’t have to be reported. But did small donors give that much?) And a lot of Obama money is coming from overseas. Now, overseas U. S. citizens can contribute, but it’s illegal for foreigners to do so.

The FEC certainly has had some questions.

A Newsmax review of the Obama campaign finance filings found that the FEC had asked for the redesignation or refund of 53,828 donations, totaling just under $30 million.

I freely admit I don’t know if any election laws are being willfully violated. And in any campaign, honest mistakes will be made. But Obama’s campaign is not passing the smell test. More here.
