    Posted by: Amanda Carpenter at 1:01 PM The Republican National Committee is filing a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission over what they believe are illegal donations made to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign from foreign sources........

    ........If the RNC's allegations are true, it won't be the first time the FEC has found Obama guilty of taking money from foreign sources. Earlier this year, the FEC ordered the Obama campaign to return an illegal donation worth $31,100 made from two brothers in the Gaza Strip........[guffaw]


    .....RNC General Counsel Sean Carincross said various press reports have called into question at least 11,500 donors names. Those names donated approximately $33.8 million to Obama's campaign.....

    Because the RNC alleged and filed a complaint doesn't make him guilty. We were warned the smear tactics would increase.

    As for the Gaza strip allegations. The brothers attempted but didn't actually make the donations.

    I missed the point where Obama has taken the ilegal dollars - all I have seen is an RNC allegation. Does that make it a fact?

    "Consider the cases of Obama donors "Doodad Pro" of Nunda, N.Y., who gave $17,130, and "Good Will" of Austin, Texas, who gave more than $11,000—both in excess of the $2,300-per-person federal limit. In two recent letters to the Obama campaign, Federal Election Commission auditors flagged those (and other) donors and informed the campaign that the sums had to be returned." Link

    Okay - by reading the title I though this was about some illegal contributions that Obama had in hand from foreign sources.

    So far I have seen allegations of such and some returned domestic gifts.

    Well, but the FEC has told the Obama campaign to return illegal donations, both foreign and domestic, and there are others, according to the Newsweek article.

    If you just google, "FEC has told the Obama campaign to return illegal donations" I think you will get the picture. There are a few blogs but no credible news print is making this statement.
