The Clinton campaign is under fire for repeatedly overcharging the credit cards of its poorest donors.
It's been reported that Hillary Clinton's campaign took in over $500 million in campaign donations from her supporters. Now we know how they did it.
According to The Observer Newspaper, the Clinton campaign repeatedly overcharged their poorest donors’ credit cards by strategically charging small amounts at a time so as not to trigger the cards' fraud alert protection.
“We don't investigate fraudulent charges unless they are over $100,” a source at Wells Fargo Bank told The Observer. “The Clinton campaign knows this, that's why we don’t see any charges over the $100 amount. They'll stop the charges just below $100."
He added: “We’ll see her campaign overcharge donors by $20, $40 or $60 but never more than $100.”
The Observer notes that the donors who are affected the most are low-income supporters who believed they were making one-time donations to the Clinton campaign.
Instead, they kept getting overcharged.
“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary's low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” the source told The Observer.
“I’m only talking to you because what Hillary's doing is so messed up, she’s stealing from her poorest supporters,” he added.
One elderly donor called her state's attorney General's office to complain. The complaint was forwarded to the Federal Election Commission.
But don't expect the federal government to investigate Clinton's fraudulent activity. The feds are too busy trying to dig up dirt on GOP candidate Donald Trump.
To those who say Clinton is unaware of the fraudulent activity: that's what she wants you to think.
There are too many complaints for her not to be aware. Clinton doesn't care because she knows the feds won't hold her accountable.
