A Jerusalem journalist writing for a conservative website reported Monday night that he was able to make two small financial contributions to President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign in the name of the late terror mastermind Osama bin Laden.
Aaron Klein, writing for WorldNetDaily, said he successfully made campaign donations of $15 and $5 through a “proxy” service that masked his location and provided the Obama campaign website with a Pakistani Internet Protocol (IP) address instead.
The Obama campaign, Klein wrote, accepted and acknowledged both contributions, made with a disposable credit card, and followed up with additional fundraising emails to a Gmail account set up in the dead terrorist’s name.
“Thanks so much for your donation of $5.00,” read one such email. “Please take 10% off your next purchase of $10 or more at our online store.”
“You’re one of the campaign’s most committed supporters,” read another form-letter email signed by Michelle Obama. “Please make a donation of $19 or whatever you can today.”
