The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) has fined the 2008 Obama campaign $375,000 for failing to file reports of donors of more than $1,000 within 48 hours, as required by law

(Jan. 6, 2013) — Four years after the 2008 presidential election, the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee have agreed to pay a $375,000 fine for failing to report timely certain donations during the last days of the campaign.

The Republican National Committee, along with several other organizations, had reportedly filed a complaint which resulted in the sanction.

The same Associated Press article on the subject was widely distributed by various news services and stated that Politico was the first news site to report the fine.

The 2008 Obama campaign was also reported to have accepted donations whose origin was untraceable when a filter could have been placed to verify that they came from a U.S. address.  The same infraction was found to have been committed in 2012, while the Romney campaign utilized the filter to accept only domestic donations.

WorldNetDaily filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission in regard to the foreign donations made in 2012 to the Obama campaign after testing the system and submitting “donations” using the name “Osama bin Laden.”  Bin Laden was allegedly killed by SEAL Team 6 between April 28 and May 1, 2011.

Multiple reports of election fraud and voting machines flipping votes from Romney to Obama have been reported to Congress with no resulting action to date.  On Friday, Congress certified the electoral votes cast for Obama on December 17, 2012, as set forth in Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.

Election fraud had been predicted by RNC Chairman Reince Preibus months before the 2012 election.  In early voting in Florida, the RNC lodged a complaint against that state’s Democrat Party, alleging the acceptance of invalid voter registrations.

Article II, Section 1 also requires the president to be a “natural born Citizen,” which Obama has not proven.  While he claims he was born in Hawaii, a law enforcement investigation has declared his long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration card to be “computer-generated forgeries,” to which the White House has not responded. Prior to January 4, a “Constructive Notice” was served to each member of Congress by the North American Law Center citing election fraud and Obama’s apparent ineligibility to serve.

Two legal challenges to Obama’s eligibility were scheduled for conference at the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday, the results of which have not yet been announced.  On Thursday, a federal judge ridiculed Atty. Orly Taitz, who had asked for a Temporary Restraining Order of the electoral votes due to fraudulent documentation and voter fraud.  Taitz’s case was accompanied by affidavits from experts who supported the claims that Obama’s documentation is fraudulent.  The judge denied the request, contending that the Constitution does not require the chief executive to have authentic identification.
