Washington Examiner teases Obama donor scandal

By

We’re heard every excuse for President Obama’s drubbing at last night’s presidential debate, from the high altitude to loud noises. The Washington Examiner tonight, though, is teasing another possible distraction for Team Obama — a “blockbuster” donor scandal that is set to break soon in a national magazine.

According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.

The Obama campaign received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via cc donations through their website http://t.co/JDWeyf8S

@jtLOL @dcexaminer I was under the impression Obama's CC donation process hasn't changed since 2008. It remains openly, defiantly illegal.

@jtLOL An interesting quirk to Obama's website: You need CC verification for the *store*, but not for donations. Same website, diff rules.

This is a breaking story that could drop Friday or Monday – Obama donor scandal. Wait and see if it's true. #Vote2012 http://t.co/FGSGk5px

Such a scandal wouldn’t be a first-time event for the Obama campaign: check out Michelle Malkin’s take on similar funding irregularities from 2008.

Update:

Sarah Palin speculates that the brewing scandal may “partially explain” President Obama’s abysmal debate performance.

A major Obama scandal is about to break, which may partially explain his terrible debate performance. Looks like… http://t.co/RUfru9R6
