The New York Times might have stumbled across something and then tried to spin it as 'everyone does it.' It seems the Obama campaign has accepted donations from fictitious donors.
Test Person - $2,410.07
Jockim Alberton - $445
Jgtj Jfggjjfgj - $370
Derty West and Derty Poiiuy - $1,110
In total after a few days of cursory examination looking for obvious problems like the afore mentioned Mr/Ms/Mrs/Hir Jgtj Jfggjjgj, the New York Times found nearly 3,000 suspicious donors. In fact Obama has taken in $314,000 in such donations.
Do we really need amateurs trying to run the country?
