FRAUD, BRIBERY, DRUGS, AND MORE
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 2, 2012) — An Obama fundraiser, Abake Assongba, has been charged with fraud, “impersonating a bank official” and email fraud regarding a charity she allegedly operates in West Africa and an expensive home in Florida despite thousands of dollars in allegedly unpaid rent and damages to former landlords.
The Huffington Post said that the charges are “creating new headaches for Obama’s re-election campaign as it deals with the questionable history of another top supporter.” Yahoo! news, which has been known to censor information damaging to the Obama regime, opined that the Assongba matter “shows dangerous consequences for [the] Obama campaign.”
Former Obama fundraiser Tony Rezko is serving a 10.5 federal prison sentence for bribery and fraud. Rezko was termed a “minor campaign issue for Obama” in 2008.
Assongba is one of 400 bundlers for Obama’s re-election campaign. Obama may have to return $200,000 raised by Juan Jose Rojas Cardona, a “drug smuggler and casino czar.” Another report states that the figure is closer to $300,000. Cardona’s two brothers also raised money for the Democratic National Committee.
Obama’s campaign reportedly said that it checks the backgrounds of volunteer fundraisers and that nothing about Assongba’s background seem amiss. However, The Washington Post said, “…But even a cursory look into her background reveals that Assongba does not fit the typical mold of a well-to-do bundler.”
With numerous reports of fraud and Obama’s apparent association with fraudsters, is the media turning on him? Do they feel defrauded?
Is Obama a fraud?
