Obama is the only presidential contender this year who released his list of "bundlers," the financiers who raise campaign money by soliciting high-dollar contributions from friends and associates. But that disclosure has not come without snags; his campaign returned $200,000 last month to Carlos and Alberto Cardona, the brothers of a Mexican fugitive wanted on federal drug charges.

You can't possibly screen everyone who donates to your campaign, before they make a contribution, unless you solicit the contribution, the article doesn't say.

The "only" one to release a list?

Why isn't that surprising?
Thanks, citizens/corporations United.

Ever hear of Anthony Rezko or Bill Aires. None of this is surprising. Obama is the most corrupt of all. Give it time and you'll see.

Top Obama campaign donor accused of fraud

WASHINGTON (AP)-- A major donor to President Barack Obama has been accused of defrauding a businessman and impersonating a bank official, creating new headaches for Obama's re-election campaign as it deals with the questionable history of another top supporter.
The New York donor, Abake Assongba, and her husband contributed more than $50,000 to Obama's re-election effort this year, federal records show. But Assongba is also fending off a civil court case in Florida, where she's accused of thieving more than $650,000 to help build a multimillion-dollar home in the state - a charge her husband denies.

LOL!!! Boy, you teabaggers are stupid! Since when is an accusation a conviction?

The accused will have a trial. If found guilty, the donation will be returned or given to charity.

That should happen by the 2020 election cycle. LOL!!!

Accused?
Good, I'm glad it was exposed.
Why was it exposed?
Because Obama released a list.
Will a republican donor ever be "exposed"?
No, because their list are still SECRET.
Thanks citizens/corporations united.
