I am not sure if you've seen this incredible giant lie that Obama belched today but I will tell you one thing, It is indicative of the utter contempt Obama has for the truth, the American people and the election laws.
The campaign fraud perpetrated by Obama is on a scale difficult to fathom (well documented here). He believes he is above the law perhaps as a result of his narcissism.
His claim that McCain received excessive donations is laughable. This is how Obama deflects allegations, he just throws them back at McCain knowing full well the media will happily do his dirty work. I wrote of this very thing at American Thinker a couple of months ago.
Obama's bots said, “Analysis of the information ... shows that the McCain Campaign has received 6,653 contributions each of which was at least $1,000 in excess of the applicable $2,300 limit to the primary campaign,” - this is a ruse. The standard procedure is to "redesignate" any excess over the $2,300 from the primary campaign to the general election. Here is one quick look at Obama's donations that are over the limit (the Palestinian donation is in there, never returned despite Obama's fabrication that it was - click to enlarge).
Tens of thousands of Obama donations have been over the limit the campaigns simply "redesignate' the funds to a diffferent campaign, another fund, a move from the primary to the general race, Every page of Obama's - sometimes pages on one donor alone - are rife with "redesignations". Here is a long list of "redesignations" on one donor from Geneva - there are hundreds, thousands of examples like "John Blair" (click to enlarge".
Obama notoriously redesignates bucco bucks to his new Obama Victory Fund, created June 2008. There is a 28,500.00 cap per donor since it is a National Party fund. The Obama Victory Fund disbursed a million and a half dollars to "other party Committees" in July.
The Committee for Change, created in mid-July, has become a vehicle for ultra-rich Democratic donors to distinguish themselves from the 3.1 million others who have put $600 million behind Obama's presidential candidacy.
"We kept running into donors who had maxed out to Obama Victory who wanted to do additional money and had the capacity to do it and were eager to do it," said Alan Kessler, a Philadelphia lawyer who recently held a fundraiser for the committee. "They asked if there were vehicles and other ways to do it, and we said yes."
The committee, which has been routing millions of dollars directly to state party accounts and will help fuel Obama's field operations, represents the flip side of the grass-roots fundraising effort that helped turn Obama into the most successful money-raiser in presidential campaign history.(more here)
Obama opted out of public financing despite promises not to do that. BHO became the $600 million man after opting out of the public financing system for presidential candidates, has become Exhibit A for experts concerned that the system is on its last legs. At the least, they say, the massive money Obama has raised ($186 million since Sept. 1 brought his total to more than $600 million) shows why the system is due for a major overhaul. How much of Obama's haul is shady, illegal and foreign is hard to estimate but we have uncovered enormous illegal activity and that's just me and a couple of intrepid Atlas readers. By opting out of the system, Obama has been unfettered by spending limits. By staying in the system, GOP nominee John McCain is limited to the $84.1 million provided by the government.
McCain got $7 million in excess donations: DNC The Post (hat tip Jane)
WASHINGTON -- John McCain received nearly $7 million in 6,652 donations that exceeded contribution limits while seeking the Republican presidential nomination, the Democratic National Committee said Saturday.
This is laughable. They talk down to us. Outrageous.
The DNC listed the figure in a complaint it said it will file on Monday with the Federal Election Commission. The Republican National Committee filed a similar complaint on Oct. 5, alleging Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama had not done enough to weed out illegal contributions.
In a copy of the DNC posted on the Internet, the DNC said on Saturday it compiled its information by examining donations recorded on McCain’s campaign Web site.
“Analysis of the information ... shows that the McCain Campaign has received 6,653 contributions each of which was at least $1,000 in excess of the applicable $2,300 limit to the primary campaign,” the DNC complaint said. “Nineteen individuals contributed more then $10,000 each to the McCain Campaign — more than four times the limit,” said the document. It said the donations included one person who gave $56,047 and overall totaled “nearly $7 million.”
Check out the top screenshot of Obama's donors. "Redesignate" - here are the limits on various campaigns, committees, and special limits.
The complaint asked the election commission to investigate the matter. It also accuses the McCain campaign of accepting donations without getting the donors’ names and addresses.
This is a blatant lie. Try it. McCain's campaign is clean. You cannot make fraudulent donations like you can with the Obama campaign. John Galt, Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, Ben Dover all donated without a problem. Further investigations is showing - real people's name are being used to "front" donations they did not make.
A spokesman for the McCain campaign was not immediately available for comment. On its Web site, the New York Times political blog quoted McCain spokesman Brain Rogers as saying the DNC complaint was a publicity stunt to distract attention from Obama’s “shady fund-raising practices.”
There is an understatement.
Here is a screen shot of the Gazan contributions reattributed and redesignated
UPDATE: Slim guy published a google docs spreadsheet with donation to the Joint Victory Fund that indicates all the donations which have gone over the cap of 28.5k at the end of September: GO HERE
Slim guy makes a valid point: "Was it a single whopper of a check [the McCain donation] one time that came in.
After all look at that lady that the BHO campaign had somebody use another credit card (not hers) and proxy donate 178K in her name.
If a bogus thing comes in Mc just can't ignore it and hope it goes away. Until he can contact the donor he has to report the donation even if they believe it is bogus and they can note that on their submission.
The FEC even allows creation of a separate bank account to put questionable donations in till they are cleared do it doesn't commingle with valid donations."
Slim Guy in the comment sextion on the joint fund limits: "Really makes you wonder what they are doing if people can in a single donation to the Joint Fund with the DNC send in a donation of over 61k when the limit is 28.5k. Not only does that go over the cap for a donation to a Joint Fund but it may go over in a single donation the limits to all party committee donations for an individual."
