As it turns out, the Republican Presidential nominee may not be eligible to actually run for President.
While he was overseas, Republican Presidential nominee Mitt
Romney held numerous fundraisers which were closed to all journalists (except
one who did not have access to the donor list). In our campaign laws, it is blatantly
illegal for a political candidate to accept money from non-United States
According to a Veterans Today report, “Mitt Romney has raised millions in foreign cash at fundraising event across Israel and London, those that we know of so far. One table alone gave him a million in cash. None was from American citizens. Fewer than 10% of Romney’s contributors in Israel are estimated to be “dual citizens.” Others may have just flown the money in.” If this is true, we deserve a candidate who understands campaign laws and does not challenge the integrity necessary for an elected official position.
These charges are very serious. Foreign citizens should not be funding our candidates, since our candidates should only have the best interest of the American people – not their foreign allies.
Please, join us in urging the Federal Elections Committee to investigate Romney's donations before the fall election season begins.
FEC: We urge you to investigate Mitt Romney's donations from abroad
and ensure his eligibility to run as President for 2012.
