Both in 2008 and in 2012, there have been allegations that foreign donors have funded and are funding the Obama Campaigns, which is in violation of Federal Law. The Government Accountability Institute (GAI), in the below listed article, released a 108 page GAI Investigation Report concerning foreign and Internet fraudulent campaign donations in support of US Federal Elections.
ACORN International, based in China, receives credit card donations which do not require donors to enter their credit card security code when they make the donations (known as the firewall, the CVV code), eliminating the requirement to insert the CVV code with the donation prevents banks from tracking foreign/fraudulent donations---however, if you want to purchase an Obama T-shirt, you must insert the CVV code.
The Obama.com Web site is not owned by the Obama Re-Election Campaign but rather by Obama bundler Robert Roche, a U.S. citizen living in Shanghai, China, the unusual Obama.com Web site redirects traffic directly to a donation page on the Official Obama Re-Election Campaign’s Web site, http://my.barackobama.com. Mr. Roche, who is originally from Chicago, is a co-chair of the Technology Initiative for the Official Obama Re-Election Campaign. The Obama.com Web site 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. The FEC which has members appointed by the Obama team has not taken any action to expose and file law suits to stop the actions being taken in China by Obama.com, in order to stop the Official Obama Re-Election Campaign from employing a myriad of gaping online security holes to accept donations that can’t be tracked, that are threatening the integrity of US House, US Senate, and US Presidential elections in 2012.
Ties to the Chinese Government
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.”
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.
