Season new reports this weekend concerning the legality of donations going to the president's campaign website a new report suggests the president's reelection team.
-- accepting money from people with nonexistent or invalid zip codes.
Echoing some similar allegations we heard a few weeks back yesterday's -- are very strict -- to investigate the year he is now with what he learned -- I guess the credit card regular you buy something online the reason they make you punch in your zip code is because the zip code helps verify the credit card numbers but.
Did you donate to the Obama campaign on line or to some extent the Mitt Romney campaign.
That security -- -- is not being used to the very same affect the government accountability institute which is a conservative group.
Has come out with a brand new numbers about how much money is being donated with out using zip codes or using phony zip codes take a look at these numbers for the Romney campaign about 282000.

Or they are making incorrect assumptions about what it means but keep in mind.
This is an old problem for the Obama campaign because back in 2008 the Washington Post did extensive reporting.
On the same zip code problems when it came to on -- funding.
And the New York Post talk to a man who lives just outside of London and he donated ten bucks to the Obama campaign -- New York Post by the way owned by the parent company.
A Fox News he's that you donated ten bucks to the Obama campaign using his London address and Arkansas State.
And a zip code from Schenectady, New York it was able to go through he says he was not able to do that.
With the Romney campaign but again none of this money no indication any that came.
From foreign people that.
