Donors in 11 Countries

Campaigns take cash, seek details later,” is the title of an interesting article discussing alleged foreign national donations.

During interviews with 123 donors in 11 countries, The Associated Press found contributions Obama accepted from at least three foreigners. Just five donors, three for Obama and two for McCain, told the AP that the campaigns asked to see copies of their current U.S. passports — as instructed by the Federal Election Commission to avoid legal problems.

Obama’s campaign said it would refund the money to the foreign donors the AP identified.
