"Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address, “Osama bin Laden” has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign," WND reported. The website did not request the card’s security code, either.
Foreign donations are illegal under U.S. campaign finance law.
The test contributions were made to see if media reports were correct in their assertions that foreigners could donate to the Obama campaign but not to the Romney site, which has placed safeguards against such efforts.
After the donation, the e-mail address for the fake foreign donor received several solicitations from the Obama campaign requesting additional donations.
