RNC Filing Complaint on Foreign Contributions

The RNC has filed a complaint with the FEC to investigate foreign contributions made to Barack Obama's campaign.

The RNC is alleging that the Obama campaign was so hungry for donations it "looked the other way" as contributions piled up from suspicious, and possibly even illegal foreign donors.

"We believe that the American people should know first and foremost if foreign money is pouring into a presidential election," said RNC Chief Counsel Sean Cairncross.Cairncross alleged there was mounting evidence of this, and cited a report in the current issue of Newsweek magazine that documents a handful of instances where donors made repeated small donations using fake names, such as "Good Will" and "Doodad Pro."

What the heck is wrong with you, RNC?!? Are you a bunch of racists?

UPDATE: Powerline has a great rundown on this.
