FEC 'Looks The Other Way', Right At McCain

Allegations that the Obama campaign had accepted illegal campaign contributions, possibly as much as 200 million dollars, have been circulating around the blogsphere for some time. The possibility of a substantial number of illegal contributions to the Obama campaign is extremely likely since the Obama web site was not using an Address Verification System (AVS) to screen donations. This would allow fraudulent donations from fictitious and possibly foreign sources. All such donations are illegal. Much of these discrepancies were detailed by Neil Munro at the National Journal.

Despite a formal complaint to the Federal Election Committee (FEC) from the RNC regarding the Obama campaign's fundraising practices, Politico is reporting that an investigation of the Obama campaign by the FEC is unlikely. The Obama campaign collected more than $600 million from at least 3.1 million donors under federal regulations which bars individuals from donating more than $2,300 to a single campaign. There is evidence that the Obama campaign facilitated and accepted fraudulent donations from sources both domestic and foreign, and that the amount of money that the campaign received which falls under the category of 'questionable' is between 150 and 200 million dollars. And yet it is unlikely that the FEC will be investigating.

But that is not the full extent of the outrageous content of this story. The FEC will be investigating the McCain campaign by virtue of the fact that he kept his promise to accept public financing, where as, Obama did not. Proving the old saying 'that no good deed goes unpunished.'
