Punitive damages were not sought because of the delay in bringing the case to trial. Soros denied any wrongdoing and said news of the takeover was public knowledge.[30]

His insider trading conviction was upheld by the highest court in France on June 14, 2006. </div></div>

Isn't it true that in the last presidential campaign that The Moron accepted pre-paid credit cards illegally and since there is no way to trace the source, there is no way to know the total or where it came from?

They admitted some foreign contributions and supposedly returned it but there is really no way to verify it. In fact, they also paid campaign workers with these same untraceable cards and not only were taxes ignored but they had a campaign that was totally off the books.

Crooks and Liars have been overlooking the obvious and spending their time investigating and smearing the innocent.

Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign is allowing donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor's identity, campaign officials confirmed. </div></div>

Thanks LWW. I thought it was common knowledge but easily forgotten by the MSM and the lefties here.

Looks like both sides decided to let questionable money flow in with "intent" to find it later and return the money.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">But R. Rebecca Donatelli, who handles online contributions for the McCain operation and the RNC, said security measures have been standard in the GOP nominee's fundraising efforts throughout the campaign. She said she was "flabbergasted" to learn that the Obama campaign accepts prepaid cards.

</div></div>This is the kind of example that makes you laugh out loud at these people. Was she really "flabbergasted"? Come on, she knows her own group allows questionable money to flow in. I guess she was just flabbergasted that Obama got caught and McCain didn't.

Perhaps. But a candidate who campaigned on a promise of more open and transparent government seems to have fallen a little short in his own campaign.

Or maybe his swamp wasn't on the list of swamps to be drained.
