I don't recall any of you independants questioning where Obama's donations came from. Seems to me money from outside a district is one thing but what about donations from outside the country?

EDIT: To be clear, there is nothing illegal about donations received from non-US addresses. US citizens residing outside the US are perfectly entitled to contribute to campaigns. By virtue of its phenomenal success in raising small dollar contributions over the Internet, the Obama campaign received thousands of contributions from foreign addresses. In these, the computer system required that the donors check a box indicating that they were US citizens and enter a passport number in a box. Those numbers were not verified. Under US law, a campaign is required to exercise due diligence and then to return contributions that are determined to violate the law. An AP survey found that both campaigns took the money first and only asked questions later, if ever. In one instance, the McCain capaign returned some $50,000 that was solicited and received by a non-US citizen in Florida who had been asked to become a fund raiser by a McCain campaign staffer. A Canadian donor gave $500 to the Obama campaign, checked the citizen box and entered a passport number, but also wrote in the address space that he was not a citizen. Since donor lists and reports were automatically recorded and sent to the FEC, this record was sent as well and the money was refunded.
