This time, there have been contributions from foreigners and dead people, including Hitler (a known right-wing Rethuglican!) and bin Laden. It all spends the same.
How hard would it have been for Soros to set up a million $3 donations in a million fake names?

#3 The Federal Election Commission seems rather toothless so far as enforcement goes. Voting rights violations go through the DOJ Civil Rights Division. Seems like an open playground for voting corruption.

#4 One thing is certain. Romney won't outspend this guy, and that's the only thing winning primaries for him. Better hope we do well enough in the House and Senate to keep Bammo at bay during his second term.

#8 Query - what would happen if they got slammed with a few million bogus submissions?
I don't know - I am not into retail or know a thing about how CC transactions are processed.
I would think that the CC verification is there for a reason and by intentionally disabling it and allowing bogus submissions they are opening themselves up for some sort of fine or disabling from their CC processor.

#10 CrazyFool, I'm sure Holder would do everything possible to arrest anyone involved in such an act as quickly as possible.
