Complaint of Over Limit Contributions and Request for Audit – Obama for America (C00431445) and Obama Victory Fund (C00451393)

 

No USA State Designation, Foreign and Domestic Donors

(Update to MUR 6142)

Dear Sir or Madam: This is an update to complaint, MUR 6142, pertaining to the Presidential Campaign Funds of Barack Obama. The update pertains to funds that are listed as other than the United States. They are contained in the electronic FEC file for the Obama Campaign, Other.zip. This file contains the records from All.zip that are not one of the 50 United States of America or Washington DC. It was found that contributions were made to the Obama for America fund from over 100 different foreign countries. (Table I). Donations totaled $4.0 million from approximately 4166 donors giving foreign addresses. This excludes obvious US military and government personnel, US Territories, incorrectly reported USA listings (Table II) and listings with insufficient information to reasonably determine the probable country. How have these 4166 donors been confirmed as legitimate donors? This further brings into question the source of the $255 million in campaign contributions that the Obama campaign has not disclosed. What assurance do the American people have that their presidential candidates are not beingign interests? This is a matter of National Security.

There were also an additional 689 donors contributing a total of $635,555 whose information was too vague or inconsistent to reasonably determine their country. Some listings are apparent oversights and errors, and others are such obviously improper listings such as Anonymous, Anonymous and Jfggjjfgj, Jgtj . While such listings can be found in some of the US State files, the records in the “Other” file are flagrant and repetitive, an insulting submission to the American People that could only be considered demonstrable financial irresponsibility.

 

As this analysis is quite extensive, the basis is enclosed as a CD with a spreadsheet detailing the records referenced. It includes a listing of the 4166 donors with foreign addresses. Please let me know if you require any further information or substantiation.

The American People need an audit of the Obama for America (C00431445) and Obama Victory Fund (C00451393). We are depending on the FEC to assure compliance with fair practices. Please audit the Obama Presidential Campaign Funds. Thank you for your time and consideration. Yours Truly,
