We’re heard every excuse for President Obama’s drubbing at last night’s presidential debate, from the high altitude to loud noises. The Washington Examiner tonight, though, is teasing another possible distraction for Team Obama — a “blockbuster” donor scandal that is set to break soon in a national magazine.

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.

Such a scandal wouldn’t be a first-time event for the Obama campaign: check out Michelle Malkin’s take on similar funding irregularities from 2008.

Update:

Sarah Palin speculates that the brewing scandal may “partially explain” President Obama’s abysmal debate performance.

      I think someone must have read your comment. This from the Examiner article:

      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.

    Will someone do something about it if true?
    Who is responsible for making sure action is taken on this and the bribe that’s happening at the moment?
    What’s the point of Laws if they are not enforced?

    If they can’t get traction on F&F, what makes anyone think anyone will do the least bit about this “scandal.” It’ll just get thrown onto the heap with the rest of the garbage to grow old and rotten.
