Why are the Dems raising this bogus claim against the Republicans now? The narrative.
Thousands of Obama’s foreign donations ended in cents. This was evidence of foreign contributors sending in donations in foreign currencies that were exchanged into dollars resulting in odd amounts. Donations from Americans living overseas would more likely be in dollars so they wouldn’t have those “odd amounts.”
The Obama campaign received a substantial amount of money from countries that have an interest in seeing a weak American President: $366,708.22 from China, $25,259.00 from the United Arab Emirates, $7,062.60 from Russia, and $6,716.28 from Saudi Arabia. Obama also took in $6,350.00 from Indonesia, $5,000.00 from Kenya, and $1,750.00 from Egypt.
The records also indicate that Obama also took donations from Tamil Tiger leaders. The Tamil Tigers are, according to the FBI, the most successful terrorist group in the world. While the Hillary Clinton returned contributions from the Tamil Tigers, Obama kept them.
P.S. Will Joe the Biden bring it up in Chicago today? I'd be careful, Joe, talking about dubious contributions. And is Joe the Biden avoiding the Dems' shady Senate candidate? Perhaps because the last thing Alexi Giannoulias needs is a verbal and substantive gaffe.
