UK Guardian Worried About Foreign Influence In US Elections

“Some arrogant Brit telling us why to not vote for George Bush is going to backfire, you stupid, yellow-toothed pansies “

The Guardian was credited in 2004 for getting Bush re-elected, by trying to interfere with the election in Ohio. Now they say they are worried about foreign influence in the US election.

The biggest single donor was the German pharmaceutical company Bayer, which gave $108,100 to senators. BP made $25,000 in campaign donations, of which $18,000 went to senators who opposed action on climate change. Recipients of the European campaign donations included some of the biggest climate deniers in the Senate, such as Inhofe of Oklahoma, who has called global warming a hoax.

The foreign corporate interest in America’s midterms is not restricted to Europe. A report by ThinkProgress, operated by the Centre for American Progress, tracked donations to the Chamber of Commerce from a number of Indian and Middle Eastern oil coal and electricity companies.

Foreign interest does not stop with the elections. The Guardian reported earlier this year that a Belgian-based chemical company, Solvay, was behind a front group that is suing to strip the Obama administration of its powers to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.

    Obama shouldn’t have opened Pandora’s box. When the GOP takes the house, they could pursue this. One journalist claimed he had made a contribution to Obama and was able to do so without identifying himself. The validation of his identity which is normally required in an online CC transaction was not required, and (he said) his donation was taken without identification, a violation of election law.

    here’s another one:

    It’s not their fault. It’s Bush’s fault.
