Thanks pj.

If she isn't Jason's #1, then the rest of you might as well hand in your ribbons.

From your linked article:
"That same month, Romney’s campaign recorded $2,450 from donors without ZIP codes and $2,500 from those with incomplete ZIPs."

Your predicted lack of concern fails to shock me.

Regarding the IP check: what if I'm traveling abroad and want to make a donation? Banning foreign IPs makes no sense.

One major difference. Unlike Obama.com, the incompletes on the Romney site are rejected.

And you speak of my predictability? I predict that you didn't google the other stories about it, or you would already know that.

Oh, Moderate Sandi totally burned you, Massimo. A quick search on "Obama foreign donations" brings up all kinds of stories. There's one on Breitbart, Powerline, The Daily Caller, FoxNews, The New York Post, Washington Examiner, National Review, hotair, Newsmax... I mean, this is a big story on all the independent news sites.

Sandi's really on to something here. And her dedication to quality sources has provided us with a plethora of stories about this very serious attack on our democracy.

Keep up the good work, Sandi!

Oh my bad, I assumed "recorded" was equivalent to "accepted", but of course "recorded" means "rejected".

"That same month, Romney’s campaign rejected $2,450 from donors without ZIP codes and $2,500 from those with incomplete ZIPs."

See, now that makes a lot more sense!
