    The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign donation in violation of the law — and does nothing to check on the provenance of millions of dollars in other contributions, a watchdog group alleges.

    Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to knowingly solicit or accept money from foreign citizens.

    That money he raises has to come from somewhere. A lot of fat cats other than Hollywood have deserted him, SO; and Chicago politicians have never been bound by law as Obama has demonstrated on more than one occasion!

    Anyone on BB think a multi-billion dollar multi-national corp. is NOT a foreign company?
