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.

The Obama campaign received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via cc donations through their website http://t.co/JDWeyf8S

@jtLOL An interesting quirk to Obama's website: You need CC verification for the *store*, but not for donations. Same website, diff rules.

BHO lets donors use untraceable prepaid credit cards that could be used to evade limits or mask contributors' identity http://t.co/j5vMeSqx

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