‘Hbkjb, Jkbkj’, Living in the City of “Jkbjnj,” Donates More Than $1k To Obama

Over at the American Thinker, Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs looks through FEC reports and spotlights some donations to Obama that raise serious questions.

She noticed $33,000 in donations from two brothers living in the Gaza Strip. (The Obama campaign says they returned the money.)
She finds a donor named “Hbkjb, jkbkj” living in the city of “Jkbjnj.”Or a donor named “Doodad”, occupation “DFGFDG”, employer “FDGFDGF, who has donated $10,780.00.
There are two areas where I think there may not be much there — the number of donations from foreign addresses (living in Turkey illustrated to me that there are a lot more American expats around the world than one might expect) and the number of foreign donors who write “unemployed” or “not employed” on the form under employer. Some countries have much lower costs of living, making a single-earner household an easier proposition for some families; also, the ease of getting a work visa varies from country to country.
Anyway, instead of completely botching basic facts in a story about McCain donors, the Washington Post might want to take a hard look at these documents and ask the Obama campaign just what the hell is going on.
