WND’s Aaron Klein able to donate to Obama via campaign site as ‘Osama Bin Laden’ using Pakistani proxy
It’s already been demonstrated numerous times this campaign season that Obama’s campaign website does absolutely nothing to verify donations taken in are from U.S. servers. While foreign campaign donations are illegal for the candidate, Red State was able to donate to Obama using a Russian name and address. A Canadian woman also bragged about how she was able to donate to Obama TWICE. And now World Net Daily’s Aaron Klein took it a step further. He donated to Obama using the alias ‘Osama Bin Laden’ with an Islamabad address. He even used a Pakistani proxy server to mask his US IP address and still the Obama website accepted the donation!
WND has received confirmation from the credit card company that the purchase went through and the $5 was deducted from the disposable card.
From the time of the first donation until today, the Obama campaign sent nine more emails to the bin Laden Gmail account soliciting more donations.
One email sent Saturday reads, “Thanks so much for your donation of $5.00. Please take 10% off your next purchase of $10 or more at our online store.”
Another, signed by Michelle Obama, was titled “Barack is getting outraised.”
“You’re one of the campaign’s most committed supporters,” Michelle Obama writes in the automated email to “bin Laden.”
“Please make a donation of $19 or whatever you can today.”
The donations from a Pakistani IP address are sure to raise further questions about the measures in place to block such donations.
