Well, it appears some of the credit-card donations were from thieves using stolen credit cards.
Why does this not surprise me?
The presidential campaign of Texas Rep. Ron Paul received donations from overseas thieves using stolen credit cards, reports CBS station KTVT in Dallas/Fort Worth.Then let's see the records.
Investigators at Frost Bank discovered that the stolen cards were being used to make $5 contributions to the Paul campaign, in an apparent attempt to test the cards.
Frost Bank refunded money from nearly 100 customers and canceled all 500 of the credit cards that had been stolen from the bank. The Paul campaign tells CBSNews.com it has refunded to the bank the donations from the stolen cards, which amout [sic] to about $3,000.
Though Paul's poll numbers in his quest for the Republican presidential nomination are low, his fundraising has been robust. On Monday he raised $4.2 million, a higher one-day total than any Republican hopeful thus far.
Kerri Price, assistant director of communications for the Paul campaign, noted that the donations from the stolen cards represent "a very small percentage of money that was brought in."
Naturally, Ron Paul had nothing to do with any of this.
Added Paul spokesman Jesse Benton: "Ron Paul does not have anything to do with this."Ron Paul never has anything to do with his campaign.
