Dem Party Leaders Under Investigation in Ohio

CLEVELAND A federal investigation of Democratic Party leaders in Cuyahoga County could pose problems for Barack Obama’s campaign. If the party’s local campaign operation suffers, some Democrats said, it could cost Mr. Obama votes in a Democratic area where he must win overwhelmingly to offset Republican strength elsewhere in the state. “There’s no question that this is not helpful,” said Peter Lawson Jones, a Democrat who serves on the three-member Cuyahoga County Board of Commissioners with Jimmy Dimora, the chairman of the county Democratic Party, who is at the center of a federal inquiry in Ohio, party insiders and political analysts say [read more . . . ].

Foreign Money Flowing Into Obama Campaign

Monday, August 11, 2008 11:29 AM

By: Jim Meyers


Record amounts of money from abroad are flowing into Barack Obama’s presidential campaign — and there is no easy way to determine if foreigners are making illegal donations.
Through June, Democrat Obama received $2.8 million in donations from foreign sources, according to federal election records obtained by The Hill newspaper.
That dwarfs the $381,809 that Republican rival John McCain received from abroad. It is also more than President Bush and John Kerry combined received in the 2004 presidential campaign. Bush took in $747,857 from foreign sources; Kerry got $550,834.
According to federal laws, contributors to federal, state and local elections must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents with green cards.
But with many Americans living overseas and contributing to campaigns, making sure the donations are legal can be difficult. Foreigners often can get away with contributing to a campaign if they are willing to make false statements about their status.
“If a contributor lies to campaigns, that’s outside the control of the campaign,” Jan Baran, an elections and ethics lawyer with the firm Wiley Rein, told The Hill.
And Larry Noble, a former Federal Election Commission general counsel, said the ability to donate money via the Internet “has raised the ease with which someone could make a foreign national contribution.”

ASK OBAMA ABOUT THE EDWARDS AFFAIR AND WHAT ABOUT THE LARRY SINCLAIR/NATOINAL ENQUIRER STORY


WILL THE ENQUIRER BREAK SINCLAIR/OBAMA AFFAIR


The National Enquirer, the paper that all the Obama supporters portray as having no journalistic integrity, teaches the MSM a lesson in reporting with the Edwards/Hunter Story.

Will the National Enquirer be the media organization that BREAKS the truth about Barack Obama and Larry Sinclair?

After all wasn't NBC and MSNBC the ones calling the Enquirer "trash"? Hey Chris and Keith, how does it feel to have to wipe that crap off your faces?

Another question the Enquirer might want to ask Edwards. Did Barack Obama and the Obama campaign extort the Edwards endorsement of Barack Obama?

Barack you are next! Its just a matter of time.
