President Obama's reelection campaign, rattled by his Wednesday night debate performance, could be in for even worse news. According to knowledgeable 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.
The Obama campaign has received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via credit card donations through their website. On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million.
At the end of the 2008 presidential campaign, the Obama-Biden effort was hit with a similar scandal. At the time, the Washington Post reported that the Obama campaign let donors use "largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor's identity."

Was Obama rattled by developing donor scandal story?


NO, but he was happy that the job #'s that came out this morning showed the unemployment rate FINALLY dipped below 8.0 % to ...."7.8%".

More than a couple economists are already questioning BLS on today's unemployment stats.

Unemployment + underemployment stayed flat at 14.7%, yet miraculously the number of people with jobs rose by 873,000... all timed for release a few days after the first debate?

Sorry, but this doesn't smell right.

Said they sample 6/10th of 1% for the household survey which in itself can open it to huge margins of error, like right before the election with a revised figure.
There's about 14% under employed, 2.6 million that quit looking....(they should be included) but you wouldn't get 7.8. Its all BS. Really around 12%.

The margin of error on the other survey is 400,000.....and they survey about double that....so who's full of it?

Obama can crow all he wants but a correction could knock him off his chair.

Oh, and for the tin-foil crowd who is questioning the original post...

Rumor has it Newsweek may be the magazine mentioned. They've already broken with the pack of the other weekly mags by running the "hit the road" cover, which has moved into one of their top selling issues of all time.

OK, here you go my ol' Amigo !

THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER

http://en.wikipedia....ington_Examiner

Political Views of the Washington Examiner;

When Phillip Anschutz (owner) started the examiner in its current format, he envisioned creating a CONSERVATIVE competitor to the Washington Post.
According to POLITICO,..."When it came to the Editorial Page, Anschutz instruction were EXPLICIT - HE wanted NOTHING but CONSERVATIVE columns, and CONSERVATIVE op-ed writers" !!!!!!!!!!!

Grandma had an Ol' sayin'.
If it LOOKS like a Duck, WALKS like a Duck and "QUACKS" like a Duck,.......................It's a DUCK !!!!!!!!!!!

Every day @ work, I get the W-E DELIVERED free of charge in Boston. It's on every terminating Amtrak Train that originates in Washington DC. The friggin' "Drudge Report" is more un-biased than the Washington Examiner.

Owner Phillip Auschutz is a Denver BILLIONAIRE. NO wonder the man has a REPUG agenda !
