Apparently, there's a lot of fund raising to be done outside the U.S. It raises a few questions in my mind...

1.) Is it legal to raise money from foreign donors in an American election?

2.) If he's being hosted by British bankers (the same guys who have brought us the Libor scandal), what's in it for them?

3.) If the money he's raising is entirely from American expats, which apparently it is, what's he promising them?

4.) Finally, if he's breaking the rules, would we ever know about it? My guess is there's a lot of PAC money flowing in from overseas, and we won't know about it for years to come, if ever.

Anyway folks, feel free to contribute to this thread, I'm curious what you can dig up.

He won't release his bundlers anyway and the superpac/citizens united/corps are people thing allows any corp anywhere to skirt the US law that foreigners can't contribute to campaigns.

So we're fucked.

Cheating republican bastards
