President Obama's reelection campaign, rattled by his Wednesday night debate performance, could be in for even worse news. According to knowledgeablesources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.

Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday.

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 has received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via credit card donations through their website. On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million.

At the end of the 2008 presidential campaign, the Obama-Biden effort was hit with a similar scandal. At the time, the Washington Post reported that the Obama campaign let donors use "largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor's identity."

Interesting...I await the articles & tv coverage.

To me, Obama looked somewhat pre-occupied.  Tired probly, his anniversary, to mention a few.  Also, when Romney was talking to him, he was mostly looking down.  (reading notes)...but it also made it look like Romney was scolding a small child.  Eh.....we'll see, as there is more to come.

I did find it funny today...on the campaign trail....Obama saying someone showed up last night claiming to be Romney & oddly knew nothing about his year long talk of increasing taxes for the middle class. (indirect quote)

Wow can not believe some of the response to these posts .You really think he has been a crook his whole life? Never have I seen more hate speech then on this site when it comes to President Obama. He has done a great job with what he has had to work with and the mess he has had to fix .Lets see Clinton had a surplus when he left office but when Bush got into office he got us into the mess we are into the day .Obama has had to spend his time working to clean up the mess republicans got us into with them saying  on day one to make him a one term President. All you all do is blame him for the mess they got us into .So you all want to give it back to them .WOW really ladys.

Hum.  There was that pesky little land deal with Tony Rezko.  There were those deals of crony capitalism where many of those associates turned around to bundle money for Obama.   As an IN Senator there were those deals where Obama funneled money to friends who said they would rebuild housing projects in the southside of Chicago...those associates made a lot of money, but failed to improve housing in the southside of Chicago. Enter Tony Rezco again.

A remarkable June 27, 2008 article entitled "Grim proving ground for Obama's housing policy" by Binyamin Appelbaum of the Boston Globe, exposed the Chicago housing mess and the role of a circle of associates of Barack Obama.
