Well, here is the latest news that shows Romney is more honest than Obama anyway...as if we didn't know that already. Obama has apparently been getting illegal campaign contributions from foreign countries! At least 10 percent from China! Countries that would love to influence our election. They actively solicit funds from foreign countries and then avoid using the CVC code from credit cards that enables that it is from the U.S. and they don't have to report it if it is under 200 so the foreigners can keep making repeated 200 dollar donations.


"A new report obtained by Townhall from the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute [GAI] shows the Obama campaign has potentially violated federal election law by failing to prevent the use of fraudulent or foreign credit card transactions on the official Obama for America [OFA] donation webpage.

For the past eight months, GAI has been investigating the potential influence of foreign online campaign donations in House, Senate and presidential elections. The report was conducted using spidering software and found thousands of foreign sites linking to campaign donation pages. The investigation was conducted with the guidance of a former U.S. attorney.

As of September 26, 2012, the Obama campaign has raised $271,327,755 in contributions under $200 for the 2012 cycle. In 2008, it was $335,139,233. The Romney campaign has raised just $58,456,968 in contributions under $200 and has all CVV and online security measures in place. In total, the Obama campaign raised $500 million online in 2008 with $335 million in contributions--more than half--falling under the $200 reporting requirement. Obama has raised more online funds than any campaign in history."

non-partisan Government Accountability Institute [GAI] did the study...non-partisan...plus it is easy to see on the web site that they don't ask for the CVC number that prevents foreigners from donating.
