Report: National magazine preparing “blockbuster” scandal story on Obama campaign donations

posted at 9:27 pm on October 4, 2012 by Allahpundit

If the term “Doodad Pro” means anything to you, none of this will come as a surprise.

President Obama reelection campaign, rattled by his Wednesday night debate performance, could be in for even worse news. According to knowlegable sources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.

Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday.

According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.

If the term “Doodad Pro” doesn’t mean anything to you, get up to speed so that you have the background needed to appreciate this new story if/when it drops. Start with Patrick Ruffini’s post from the end of the 2008 campaign explaining how lax security on Obama’s campaign donation website created an opportunity for fraudulent donations. The Washington Post picked up the story a few days later, reporting that the campaign not only was accepting money from untraceable prepaid credit cards but that it “had chosen not to use basic security measures to prevent potentially illegal or anonymous contributions from flowing into its accounts, aides acknowledged.” Team O’s defense at the time was that they preferred to manually eliminate any bogus donations that flowed in by scrutinizing their books afterward and rejecting the ones that looked suspicious. Why they’d prefer a time-consuming process like that when they could screen donations before they were accepted with online security measures, as many other campaigns do, wasn’t clear.

Fast-forward four years, when the campaign once again had to decide which measures to take to prevent online donation fraud. Time to learn a lesson and institute front-end screening? Apparently not: A video posted to YouTube in April suggested that they’d disabled their donation security measures again. (The measures may since have been reinstated. I’m not going to donate to find out.) No way to tell yet if this sort of thing is what the forthcoming scandal story is about, but the description in the excerpt sure sounds familiar. And if it is the same thing, then it’s essential to understand that people have been complaining about it for years. Team O is fully aware of the objections by now; if it’s still happening, it’s because they didn’t care enough to stop it. And if I’m wrong about all this and the story has to do with some entirely different donation scam, well, that’s even more interesting. To raise $150 million in a month, you need an awful lot of donors. And we know that when it comes to donors, Obama’s not picky.

Maybe its about those clooney fundraisers overseas, which certainly didnt sound legal.

lorien1973 on October 4, 2012 at 9:36 PM

This would be a non story only because every scandal involving O has been stamped out by the media and his machine however with the last few days of campaign implosion and a media still in shock, it may just be one of many straws that finally break the back of his messiah-ship.

It’s hard to say… I mean this should have been a big deal during the last election and it wasn’t. However, I think it’s fair to say that a lot of things have changed since 2008. Obama is no longer the cool guy. Popularity and wanting to be “historic” sort of goes out the window when people are struggling to get by.

MobileVideoEngineer on October 4, 2012 at 9:37 PM

The measures may since have been reinstated. I’m not going to donate to find out.

Don’t have to actually donate. Go to their donation page/form. All they require is credit card number and expiration date, no security code. So, no, they have not reinstated AVS protections.

Stu Gotts on October 4, 2012 at 9:38 PM

Our political system has already been sold out. If anyone didn’t notice, Romney went into states where his poll numbers lagged throughout the nomination process and literally bought primaries to the dismay of his opponents with smaller bank accounts.
I wouldn’t mind another ‘scandal’, if that’s even possible given all the untraceable SuperPAC money in the system, to remind voters that serious reforms are needed.

bayam on October 4, 2012 at 9:40 PM

This is exactly what happened 4 years ago, same campaign laws were broken and nothing was done What is different now ? Oh I see, we have a more exacting AG now, who will be all other this, as soon as he wraps us that “fast and furious” business.

runner on October 4, 2012 at 9:40 PM

Oh this should f*cking hurt. I love it.

By the way, people, now is not the time to become complacent. We are, after all, fighting, not only Obama, but the majority of the nation’s news organizations, unions, newspapers, websites and the moochers. So I plead to all of my fellow conservatives/libertarians/Reagan/Romney Democrats, please give.

Give just $15. Show Romney that we appreciated his epic performance against the “smartest man in the world”. Obama was Mitt Slapped last night!

JellyToast on October 4, 2012 at 9:40 PM

I did a test $5 donation back in 2008 to see if they really were as lax as people were saying. Yes, they were. I used a credit card in my name, but used a different name, address, etc. in the billing info. Really different, as in my name was “Not Real, I Am”. Similar garbage for the address. They took my donation, no questions asked.

To their credit, I did receive a refund for the donation credited back to my account, but about 2 months after the election. In the meantime, they could count it toward their totals in the run-up to the election (I know, it’s only $5). But they could also count it among the many “small donations” they were getting at the time, something they were really touting as “grassroots”.

Anyone else try this with a fake name and (eventually) get their money returned?

JoelD on October 4, 2012 at 9:41 PM

Maybe US News & World Report?

jwolf on October 4, 2012 at 9:37 PM

U.S. News & World Report is no longer really a magazine. Its web site is still in operation, but they only publish a few special issues in print each year, like “America’s Best Hospitals” or “America’s Best Colleges.” Unlike Time and Newsweek, they realized a couple of years ago that there was no longer much of a market for a magazine with last week’s news in it.

SWalker on October 4, 2012 at 9:45 PM

I just went to donate at King Obama’s website. First of all, you cannot donate less than $3.00 and they are not asking for that security code before you hit the “donate” button.

When I donated to Romney, that function was mandatory.

Is that the problem you guys are talking about? Shall I see if my family can donate from Slovakia?

JPeterman on October 4, 2012 at 9:45 PM

Why they’d prefer a time-consuming process like that when they could screen donations before they were accepted with online security measures, as many other campaigns do, wasn’t clear.

We’re not talking about a few dollars here folks, it’s potentially in the millions and from foreigners who might not even be considered “friends” of the U.S. I think Ed posted a few stories about the “open credit card” fiasco, (as did myself), when it became apparent that Obama’s money-train was exploding. And of course, the liberal media never reported a word about it. My exit question is: Is this President not only guilty of these illegal monetary transactions in 2008, but is he possible still doing it TODAY?

Rovin on October 4, 2012 at 9:45 PM

For the third morning in a row, Arabs rioted on the Temple Mount, attempting to attack groups of Jews who sought to visit the holiest site in Judaism during the Sukkot holiday. Police again Thursday deployed large numbers of officers to keep the Arabs from attacking the Jews.

Police have reported that there were mild protests during recent days, but video footage showed dozens of young Arabs actively trying to attack Jews who were visiting the Mount. In one video, a Wakf official is seen threatening to break the camera of a Jew filming footage of the Arab rioters.

davidk on October 4, 2012 at 9:53 PM

Somewhat O/T but related in re to election fraud, I received an email from an NC friend who reported the following story about hijinks in NV. I don’t know if the anecdote is an urban legend, but it is most disturbing if true.

ATTENTION PLEASE!

This is very unsettling. This is one of those – friend-of-a friend situations………I just got off the phone with a friend who was told this afternoon by another friend, that someone came to her door to distribute campaign information and to find out if the person was registered to vote. The person said oh yes, registered to vote, and said that she was voting for Romney. The person at the door said that well, I can help you with that. You can vote right now, and I will turn your vote in for you, then you won’t have to go to the polls to vote because you will have already voted.

Do you see what this could mean?

The ONLY reason the lady didn’t vote was because her husband wasn’t home, and she said we’ll just go to the polls together.

Could Obama be stooping to this level????????????

I do not necessarily have direct access to the friend of the friend, but the lady was adamant that she could have voted today and turned her vote over to this person to be ‘counted’.

Does this anecdote have any credibility?

onlineanalyst on October 4, 2012 at 9:54 PM

Wired Magazine(doubtful)
Reason Magazine(doubt they could generate much interest and they’re an ideological outlet)
National Enquirer

This doesn’t come from millions of small-amount donors in foreign countries, that’s the beauty of the scam. Here’s how it works:

The democratics’ favorite Nazi stooge George Soros buys 100 million dollars worth of prepaid credit cards in bulk, preferably in a foreign country. The cards are not really needed, just the numbers in a computer. They then set up a boiler room in a relatively lawless country where the police won’t wander in and say “so what’s going on here”, like Gaza. Then the phone banks go to work spending that money in small amounts until the 100 million dollars is gone, less a few bucks for phone bank workers, phone lines, etc.

Presto, look at that Obama, getting all those little donations from all those places, isn’t he such a wonderful man of the people?

“uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas.”

That would be the Palestinians. It was uncovered in 2008 but everybody just swatted it away like an annoying fly.

Does anybody think this time it will be different?

I saw a couple of guys with Hope and Change shirts stealing some copper wires. Is this part of the same ring?

According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.

BTW, even if this is true will anyone care?

I bet this is the Sunlight Foundation… whom have they worked with before?

WE know it won’t be numbers 1 & 2.

There is one thing everyone is forgetting:

Obama is going to come out swinging (flailing?) in the next two debates, and probably throwing lots of junk. If this story materializes, but the press just decides to spike it, well, Romney may well force them to report it.

Using ‘blockbuster‘ in the same sentence with 0bama, especially since he was is a ‘community organizer’ and Rezko partner and Jarret associate is just a racist ‘dog whistle’ term.

And this will fizzle out just like everything else. Carney will tell us that he knows ‘four or five people named Doodad Pro.’ and that will be the end of it all, outside of Hot gas and other places that KKK types gather.

(do I need to put in a /s or is it obvious?)

Heartache – Allah was hoping it was Cat Fancy

This was all exposed in the 2008 campaign, also. No one cared then (except McLame said that Obambi would make a great president); why would anyone care now?

Time? No?

Newsweek? No?

The New Republic? No?

Vanity Fair? No?

The New Yorker? No?

Shocked. Just shocked.

Christian Science Monitor or maybe The Atlantic.
