Barack Obama’s Unethical and Possibly Illegal Fundraising Practices

This article is the first in a series that underscores Barack Obama’s serious deficiencies in character, ethics, and integrity. The links appear at “Barack Obama: Powered by Hate,” a compilation of Obama’s questionable campaign financing practices, plus enablement and empowerment of racists, anti-Semites, and Catholic-hating bigots. In all cases, we provide links and references so the reader can verify for himself/herself the truth of the statements. This is very important because of the numerous smears and urban legends that are in circulation.

Barack Obama’s unethical, dishonest, and possibly illegal campaign financing schemes include:

  1. “Dinner with Barack” lotteries that were probably illegal forms of gambling in many jurisdictions, and one of which may have been rigged. It announced a winner before the entry deadline, which suggests that not every campaign donor had an equal chance to win.
  2. Misuse of the United Church of Christ’s tax exempt resources for electioneering. A key talking point is the fact that Obama wrote (thus showing premeditation) a campaign-related speech, “A Politics of Conscience,” after promising the UCC that no campaign-related activity would take place at its annual synod in Hartford.
  3. Acceptance of contributions from foreign sources, and in excess of the $2300 individual limit.
