“Dear Adolph, thank you for your generous donation….”

According to the Washington Examiner, the President may be in for another October surprise:

President Obama reelection campaign, rattled by his Wednesday night debate performance, could be in for even worse news. According to knowlegable sources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.

Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday.

According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.

The Obama campaign has received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via credit card donations through their website. On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million.

I tell ya, it's like deja vu all over again.

Update: via Eric Hines, the folks at Powerline are all over the story. In the spirit of redistribution and egalitarianism that has come to characterize the Age of Obama, we shamelessly swiped the revised title of this post from them. Why should they be allowed to selfishly hoard all the good lines?

Lying Liars. They just keep on lying. That's what they do. That's ALL they do....
