Bundler in Shanghai with Business Ties to Chinese Government

8 Oct 2012, 5:14 AM PDT294post a comment

In an explosive report set to send shockwaves through official Washington, the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) released a 108-page GAI investigation into the threat of foreign and fraudulent Internet campaign donations in U.S. federal elections (visit campaignfundingrisks.com to download the full report).

Breitbart News obtained an advance copy of the bombshell report which reveals that the Obama.com website is not owned by the president’s campaign but rather by Obama bundler Robert Roche, a U.S. citizen living in Shanghai, China. Roche is the chairman of a Chinese infomercial company, Acorn International, with ties to state-controlled banks that allow it to “gain revenue through credit card transactions with Chinese banks.”

There’s more.

The unusual Obama.com website redirects traffic directly to a donation page on the Obama campaign’s official website, my.barackobama.com, which does not require donors to enter their credit card security code (known as the CVV code), thereby increasing the likelihood of foreign or fraudulent donations. The website is managed by a small web development firm, Wicked Global, in Maine. One of Wicked Global’s employees, Greg Dorr, lists on his LinkedIn page his additional employment with Peace Action Maine and Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights. According to the GAI report, 68 percent of all Internet traffic to Obama.com comes from foreign visitors.

And still more.

In 2011, Mr. Roche obtained one of the most sought-after pieces of real estate in Washington, DC: a seat at the head table for President Obama’s State Dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao. How Roche—a man whose infomercial company hawks fitness equipment, cell phones, and breast enhancement products—landed a seat alongside Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, Sen. John Kerry, former President Jimmy Carter, and Chinese President Hu Jintao remains unclear.

Since 2009, White House Visitor Logs list the name Robert Roche at least 19 times, despite the fact Mr. Roche’s primary residence is in China.

Mr. Roche, who is originally from Chicago, is a co-chair of the Technology Initiative for the Obama campaign.

According to Acorn International’s prospectus, the success of Mr. Roche’s company hinges on maintaining access to state-run media and “preferential tax treatments and subsidies” doled out by the People’s Republic of China (PRC):

Our business depends on our access to TV media time to market our products and services in China….PRC law is vague and is subject to discretionary interpretation and enforcement by PRC authorities…Loss of these preferential tax treatments and subsidies could have material and adverse effects on our results of operations and financial conditions.

In addition to the Obama.com redirect revelation, the Government Accountability Institute report—America the Vulnerable: Are Foreign And Fraudulent Online Contributions Influencing U.S. Elections?—exposes myriad gaping online security holes that stand to threaten the integrity of House, Senate, and presidential elections.

Stay tuned to Breitbart News for continuing coverage…

Here is The Daily Caller, a favorite of conservatives, in which they say that Romney also receives foreign donations but they aren't as concerned with him, of course .

READ:

report from the conservative Government Accountability Institute (GAI) which found Barack Obama’s re-election campaign likely broke federal law by soliciting campaign contributions from overseas also took some issue with GOP candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign finance apparatus.

Unlike Obama’s campaign, Romney requires online credit card donors to input Card Verification Value (CVV) data consisting of “a three or four digit number generally imprinted on the back of the card” in order “to verify that the person executing the purchase physically possesses the card.”

 The Daily Caller is the source that many conservatives here use.....Carpy, for example,uses Blogs from The Daily Caller to give us all her conservative views and news.I guess if I use it as a souce of Information, then it suddenly becomes "stupid crap" ? That really makes me LOL.

All candidates should be following election law.  Illegal funds should be confiscated from their war chests imo.

There is no point except the fact that many refuse to see the illegalities of this.  It is like the same scenario where a teenager is scamming their mother.  He is out doing no good and the neighbors are warning the mom but she just accuses the neighbors of being jealous or being wrong......
