Obama’s Abake Assongba Problem

Monday, April 2, 2012

A major donor to President Obama’s 2012, Abake Assongba, has been accused of defrauding a businessman and impersonating a bank official.

This is not the only donor scandal surrounding President Obama’s 2012 campaign.

Last month, Mr. Obama had to return $200,000 to Carlos and Alberto Cardona, the brothers of a Mexican fugitive wanted on federal drug charges.

Acccording to federal records, New York donor Abake Assongba and her husband contributed more than $50,000 to Obama’s re-election effort this year. But Assongba is also fending off a civil court case in Florida, where she’s accused of stealing more than $650,000 to help build a multimillion-dollar home in the state — a charge her husband denies.

While 1.3 million Americans have donated to the Obama 2012 campaign, Assongba was listed on Obama’s campaign website as one of its elite fundraisers of about 440 people.

    This is serious coin. Obama will be writing a refund check I predict.

    All them damn Africans are dirty.

    Seriously though it must be a bitch keeping track of this. I agree with Joe. In my part of Colorado today it’s not so nice.

  3. Marcus Ybanez says:

    Everyone running for political office attracts dirtbags with money.

    They want access and proximity to power so they write a check and the pathway is paved. But some of them receive scrutiny like Assongba and then the politician looks sheepish under the glare of media and blogosphere attention.

    Politics is so filthy. Even the men and women who enter it with clean hands become corrupted in short order. I would bet fewer than 5% of the Congress has clean hands. Even Dumbos like DiFi has profited from Bush’s Iraq and Afghanistan wars and she’s a Jew and a Dem!

  5. DMason says:

    Return the damned money, Barry. Just do it.

  6. Randy Arroyo says:

    David is correct. The sooner Obama returns this money, the better. It’s tainted. Refund it, ASAP.
