The Obama campaign has turned its security settings for accepting online contributions down to the bare minimum — possibly to juice the numbers, and turning a blind eye towards the potential for fraud not just against the FEC, but against unsuspecting victims of credit card fraud.
Voter fraud (ACORN) and illegal donations should be a death knell for any campaign.

It is creating a culture of “the end justifies the means” along with making personal integrity a convenience rather than a creed.
