Not a Bombshell: Barack Obama's Campaign Website Encourages Fraudulent Donations

John Galt of Ayn Rand Lane (zip code: a nonexistent 99999) was able to donate with no problem.

Despite the fact that the card holder's name and address do not match the name he provided.

John McCain's website? Rejected the same non-matching-information donation.

I guess when you're gathering up tens of millions from the Saudis and Gazans you have to be a little lenient on matching up credit card donations.

Incidentally-- when I fucking order cheesesteaks from my local deli, I get dinged when I forget my current zip code and give them my old one.

Again, though: If Obama were demanding that credit card information matched donor information, he couldn't draw in $150 million largely from fraudulent overseas donors.

Anyone see a pattern? Jennifer Brunner isn't bothered by "voters" with non-matchable information casting votes; Barack Obama doesn't take the most basic safeguard of ensuring that a donor's information matches the information on his credit card.

Try buying something anywhere with a credit card. You check to see if you can get away with entering false information about your name and address.

An automated check bounces all such attempts. Unless this safeguard has been specifically disabled.

And why would anyone do that?

I just can't think of a single reason.

Thanks to Mark.


More: John Galt joins a Who's Who of fictitious characters and dubious celebrities (such as "OJ Simpson") who've somehow managed to get past Obama's super-high-tech security measures.

Why, it's almost like breaking into the Black Vault in the CIA headquarters (as seen in Mission: Impossible)!


Ethan Hunt: [Ethan narrates someone getting into the vault] The only person allowed inside has to pass through a series of security checks. First is voiceprint identification... Then, he has to put in a 6 digit code.

That only gets him into the outer room. Next, he is positively identified by retinal scan.

Finally, the security measures are only deactivated after insertion of a double electronic keycard... which we won't have.

Once inside the vault, there are 3 security systems in operation whenever the technician is out of the room. First is sound sensitive; anything above a whisper will set it off. The second is temperature-sensitive. Even the body heat of an unauthorized person inside the vault can trigger the alarm if the temperature rises just a single degree. And that temperature is controlled by an air conditioning vent 30 feet above the vault floor. That vent is guarded by a laser net.

The third one is on the floor, and it's pressure sensitive. Just the slightest increase in weight will set it off. And any of these systems, if set off, will trigger an automatic lockdown. Now believe me when I tell you, gentlemen, that all 3 systems, are state of the art.

Luther Stickel: That sounds impossible.

Ethan Hunt: Alternately, we can just enter the name of a cartoon character, and we're in like Flynn.

Luther Stickel: Well let's do that one then.

Ethan Hunt: Which one? The one with the gymnastic glide into the room in my heat-dissipating jet black Intrusion Suit?

Luther Stickel: No, the second one. The cartoon character one.

Ethan Hunt: Dude, I look really good in that black suit.

Luther Stickel: Cartoon character.

Ethan Hunt: It's a John Paul Gualtier, man. I, like, never get to wear it.

Luther Stickel: Cartoon character.

Ethan Hunt: Sometimes I think you're just jealous. Green is not a good look on you, Luther.
