Foreign Cash Disqualifies Romney from Presidential Bid

    Romney Faces Prosecution for Campaign Finance Violations

    If you go outside the US, if you stay inside the US, if your contributor is living in the US but not a citizen, any money you get can mean years in jail.

    Romney went the whole way, personally campaigning outside the US, soliciting foreign citizens, and humiliating himself and his country with his ignorance and flagrant attempts to trade illegal cash for promises of illegal war. One could hardly break more laws if one wanted.

    Romney has raised millions in foreign cash at fundraising event across Israel and London, those that we know of so far. One table alone gave him a million in cash. None was from American citizens. Fewer than 10% of Romney’s contributors in Israel are estimated to be “dual citizens.” Others may have just flown the money in.

    The problem stems with bad legal advice Romney received from his campaign finance staff.

    The Romney campaign had been laundering money through corporations, money moved into the US under the “Citizen’s United” decision of the US Supreme Court.

    Romney figured he could then go anywhere in the world, peddle foreign policy, promise war, play president and collect cash from foreigners though this is specifically prohibited by US law.

    In doing so, he is no longer qualified for office and, if challenged by Ron Paul, has no standing at the Republican Convention. With such a clear violation of law, not just blatant but massive, Romney could face years in prison.

    Wondering if you read your link. Let me provide two quote from it.

    "no donor is identified, no records are kept"

    and

    "None was from American citizens."

    So can you explain for us how we know that the donors were not American citizens if none were identified?

    I believe Romney is required by law to keep records of donations over a certain amount of money. We'll see if anything comes of it at the GOP convention. If he makes it out of there unscathed, he's probably free and clear.

    Since 9/11, high-ranking politicians, Wall Street bankers and CEOs are above the law.

    Have you seen any records on Obama's overseas campaign fundraisers?

    The law cited refers to foreign nationals. It says nothing about expat US citizens

    From the article you cite
    "All of the donors are U.S. citizens"

    This is about as much of an issue as Obama's birth certificate.

    Watch this space for the flood of birthers who insist Obama is ineligible to be president based on PRATT rumour come out of the woodwork explaining why this doesn't count as far as Romney is concerned.

    Actually, it's even funnier since Obama's done the same thing.

    ...so that would leave us with Ryan vs. Biden. :muahah:

    Actually, I think Biden actually made the trip overseas to solicit donations, so that leaves us with just Ryan. The recession is as good as over. :D:D

    Can't you see the Biden/Ryan debate? Biden: "There going to put y'all in chains". What else can he say? That's all he's got.

    It doesn't count because it is petty, bogus and hypocritical.
    You Want To Investigate Foreign Donations? Start With Obama [Reader Post] | Flopping Aces

    Also, Gordon Duff's submissively posed naked prostitute on a rope lease is quite disturbing.

    However, would be a waste to disappoint an audience.


    "The usurper Obama is not eligible for multiple reasons:
    1. Failure to be a "natural born citizen" as required by Article 2, Section 1.
    2. Being born a British citizen pursuant to British Nationality Act of 1948.

    3. Law enforcement investigators have concluded his birth certificate is fraudulent."[1]
