"Stealing Democracy" - DNC Ad
It should be noted that the DNC did not cite the slightest shred of evidence to back up their allegations. The Liberal-leaning website, Factcheck, stated that "Democrats [and the President] have produced" no evidence to back up their claim.
Obama's FEC records, on the other hand, were parsed during the presidential campaign and found to be rife with questionable donations. What's more, during the Presidential campaign, it was discovered that Obama's electronic contribution site had been accepting donations from countries like China, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Somalia...
'Stealing Democracy' - Response to DNC Ad:
How Barack Obama and the Democrats are "stealing Democracy" by accepting political contributions from foreign sources and by accepting donations that far exceed the $2300 maximum allowed by law:
October 6, 2008 - An auditor for the Federal Election Commission is attempting to have his bosses seek a formal investigation into the collection by Obama for President campaign of more than $200 million in potentially illegal political donations, including millions of dollars of illegal, foreign donations, and has sought a request for assistance from the Department of Justice or the Federal Bureau of Investigation. But the analyst's requests have largely been ignored. "I can't get anyone to move," he said. "I believe we are looking at a hijacking of our political system and no one wants to touch it."
The reason cited by his superiors, says the analyst, is that involvement by the Justice Department or the FBI would be indicative of a criminal investigation, something the FEC would prefer not take place a month before the presidential election.
The analyst, who declines to be identified for fear of retribution, says that on four different occasions in the past three months, he sought to open formal investigations into the Obama campaign's fundraising techniques, but those investigations have been discouraged. "Without formal approval, I can't get the resources I need, manpower, that kind of thing. This is a huge undertaking." He believes that campaign finance violations have occurred.
The Obama campaign has already had to deal with several FEC complaints about fraudulent donors and illegal foreign contributions. The Obama campaign has been cagey at times about the means by which it has made its historic fundraising haul, which now is almost $500 million. The Hillary Clinton campaign also raised questions about the huge amount of e-retail sales the Obama campaign was making for such things as t-shirts and other campaign paraphernalia, and how such sales were being tracked and used for fundraising purposes. While the profits of those items counted against the $2,300 personal donation limit, there have always been lingering questions about the e-retail system.
In this case, there is no way the Obama campaign will be held accountable before Election Day, unless someone raises holy hell."
The FEC analyst says that Obama's filings indicate that he has received large, bundled sums of donations from overseas, sometimes exceeding a quarter millions dollars. "It's suspicious, but it's the small donations made by credit card that need to be examined. We've raised red flags on many of these and the Obama campaign just ignores us.
What is frustrating is the lack of desire on the part of his bosses to act, and the major media outlets have totally ignored his story etc....
