Investigative journalist James O’Keefe is blowing the whistle on millions in donations to the Democrat Party from elderly donors who claim they didn’t even know they were donating.
O’Keefe found that up to $4.7 million in small donations came from elderly people who claimed not to be employed. These donors were making multiple donations a day, which is entirely fraudulent. Small donors may make monthly donations or even weekly ones, but small donors never make repeated multiple donations a day. It just doesn’t happen.
Suspicious money laundering may have been occurring, with donations made using the old folks’ names and addresses since they were less likely to discover them than younger people. O’Keefe, who started OMG Media Group after parting ways with Project Veritas, showed up at the homes of several of the elderly people, who have been dubbed “Smurfs,” to confront them about the excessive contributions. They all appeared to be Democrats of modest means who seemed confused and generally denied making anything but small amounts.
One of the biggest recipients of the small amounts of donations was Janet for Justice, the campaign of Janet Protasiewicz, who narrowly won her Wisconsin Supreme Court race, tipping the balance on the court in favor of Democrats.
Election Watch suspects the money could be coming from overseas interests since the small amounts correlate to currency exchange differences. The strange contributions totaled $4.7 million. They are all publicly available in plain view on the FEC’s website.
Of course, it is illegal for foreigners to donate money to American politicians or political candidates.
O’Keefe and his team found a list of people who “donated” to Democrats but who did not know they did.
This is nothing but criminal.
And where is the media on this?
