Hillary Clinton

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.

  • Anna Maria

    There are two things wrong with this story. First, let's take a look at the Observer. "The Observer is owned by real estate scion Jared Kushner, who married Ivanka Trump in 2009. Second, the only source they quoted is a Wells Fargo spokesman. This bank was just cited for opening thousands of checking accounts without the knowledge of the persons in whose names they were opened. Earlier this month they were charged with opening two (2) million phony accounts in the names of individuals who had no knowledge the bank this was occurring because they didn't open the accounts. As a result, 5, 300 Wells Fargo employees were fired. The employee in charge of that department will get a golden parachute of $25 million dollars. The bank agreed to pay $185 million in fines, along with $5 million to refund customers. Jared Kushner and Wells Fargo? Oh, please.

  • Anna Maria

    Sandra, if you want to go negative about the presidential campaign, why don't you report on how Trump lied for five years about President Obama's birthplace?? Second, last night he unleashed his "mad dog" followers in Miami last night by saying that her Secret Service protection should get rid of their guns. Never in the history of the U.S. has anyone running for president given a dog whistle to their followers to attack (murder) their opponent. by https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/09/17/donald-trump-just-made-his-most-direct-comment-yet-about-violence-against-hillary-clinton/?hpid=hp_hp-top-table-main_fix-violence-911am%3Ahomepage%2Fstory

  • GuestSTAR

    And Trump hasn't donated any monies to his own foundation, The Trump Foundation since 2008 (10K), but instead use donations to The Trump Foundation to donate to charities.
    In other words, he's using other people's money to donate and look like he's being charitable when in essence, he hasn't donated sht out of his own pocket.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Welcome Auntie. Longtime lurker lol

  • Karma WhO

    they BOTH are unfit and unqualified for the position..

  • JJ

    Thing that gets me is why is it 185 million in fines and only 5 million for refunds. The people who had phony accounts opened under their names deserve refunds and punitive damages because they were more than likely getting charged monthly maintenance fees etc being deducted from actual accounts with no clue why. Who's to say they had that extra 5-20 dollars to spare and if that put them in a bind or not. Plus credit cards were also opened under their names and that means they got bogus hard pull and have to enough in credit monitoring service in fear of something similar happening again.

    Yet only 5,000,000 to actual customers and 185,000,000 to who...the government? What exactly are they going to do with it beside have corrupt officials take large chunks out of it. The whole system is broken, Wells Fargo was just playing the same game all other major corporations do manipulating numbers for their gain probably only got exposed due to not paying off same government officials who well dip their hands in the 185 million dollar pot.

    I'm not convinced this occurred because of the reporting source and the spin the Observer put on it. How would any political campaign know the ages of its donors??? How would they know the donors are low income??? Just because a person donates a small amount DOES NOT mean they are unable to donate more!! They may choose to not donate more for a thousand reasons that are not cited. Also, the campaign donor forms online often are not explicit as to whether it is a recurring gift or not. I think I successfully obliterated the two claims you repeat from the truth challenged Observer that the donors are poor and or elderly because there is really no way for anyone to determine this by the amount given.

    Kind of common. He set up a charity and people are donating to it...so that the charity can make donations. This is common among rich white folks. He may be holding fundraisers that raise money for the charity. There are many ways he could be donating to his charity without using his name.

    Always ready to fight over the Democratic party which continuously ignores and laughs at the black community. They support a so-called black president who legalized gay marriage and waved illegal immigrants into the country. What did blacks get? Not a darn thing. Obamacare is a mess and taxes anyone who doesn't purchase health care from the big insurance companies.

  • GuestSTAR

    Yeah, but he's not donating to his own charity, other people are. He hasn't donated to his charity since 2008. He purchased a 6 ft painting of himself with donations from his foundations.
    Also there are HUGE tax breaks for Foundations, that's why many set them up.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I wanted to vote Republican so badly this year because Obama has been such an inept and absurd disappointment. But Trump is so hard to take seriously. I don't really care about the racial nonsense because any and everything Trump has ever said about black folks has been said by every other white Republican in America--let's be real. And there are a white Republicans who are vastly more racist than Trump but that doesn't fit the media's objective, which is to make Trump look as scary as possible.

    But i can't vote for Trump and I won't vote for Hillary--period. She's ridiculous and if she hasn't done anything to fight for Black Lives, LGBT lives, single mothers, criminal justice system reform and so much more while she was laying up in the White House, in the Senate, or Secretary of State--then she's not gonna do shit as president.

    I'll sit this one out.

    I must say that your right wing slant is saddening and discouraging to me every time you post your political views. You are now re-posting from "infowars.com" and you seem to be supporting the most racist man to run for the Presidential office in recent history. I never understood your position towards President Obama but now I can see the light.

  • E Jai

    Not from this single post but looking at the totality of all your posts. You post a lot of biased, half -truths and negative posts about a lot of people on your blog that you don't know at all, as if the information is fact. These posts included people in the spotlight ranging from Beyonce all the way to Hillary Clinton. But I guess this is a blog so no journalistic integrity is required or any expectation of fairness?

  • E Jai

    The comment wasn't about this single post....but to comment specifically about this one.... how many of the negative stories has she pulled up and posted about Donald Trump?

    Richie Rich.....so I searched her blog for Donald Trump and guess what......the first 15 posts about Donald Trump were all positive posts.....no mention of any of the insulting or negative things from his campaign. I got tired of looking cuz my point was proven and that's why I said she is negative. She posts these crazy negative stories all the time about these celebrities and public figures of the one she doesn't like and nothing negative about the ones she likes. So if she was just stating facts clearly I would have found something unfavorable pop up about Donald Trump. And I doubt what she posted about HIllary is rooted in facts...the facts were posted further down in the comments by Anna Maria!

  • just being me

    First of all the customer can always dispute a change they feel is incorrect on their statement which would stop any future charges from coming into the account the next month so I really question this statement .. I also know that the customer and make multi charges to the merchant if they choose so it may be them making additional purchases not the merchant overcharging. Its like saying going to Walmart 3 times a month because you have to get the same thing is something the store did wrong when you went back and got it multi times. I agree with human this site has become more anti President Obama more than the GOP and Fox Nonews .. Imagine that

  • just being me

    Its not close they are just making it look like it is .. The polling is done by about 2000 people and they assume that speaks for the whole US and also if its only 2000 people and you choose the 2000 people you call the polls can say whatever they want it to say

  • just being me

    I agree because Trump always tell the truth and hasnt been accused of anything in his life .. You should sit this election out because of your reason

  • just being me

    The banks never notice charges because its all done by computer so unless customers call in and report the computer thinks this is ok unless its really done on a mass scale .. Since she is the only one complaining one may want to look at the customer not Hillary or the website.

  • Anna Maria

    Zilch. None. She hasn't examined Donald Trump as a candidate as to his qualifications, veracity, policies, and anything else under the sun. Donald Trump is unimaginable as president. He knows nothing about the way the U.S. functions abroad. He knows nothing about domestic policies except for "building a wall and making Mexico pay for it." Most college seniors are a lot more knowledgeable about domestic and foreign policy issues than he. And, if he keeps putting his children out front as though they know the issues a lot of people are going to scream to the top of their lungs. They are his children, for God's sake and not politicians or policy wonks. I have never seen another candidate who assumed his or her children were on par with older professionals who have experience and knowledge of the issues. This was borne out the other day when when Ivanka Trump was interviewed by Cosmopolitan magazine. The interviewer by all accounts was professional and simply asked questions Ivanka should have been able to answer. When asked about something her father had said she froze and walked away from the interview. Gone was the confident thirty two year old and what appeared was a person who not only had no knowledge of what to say but she also demonstrated thin skin. She couldn't handle anything that remotely put her father in less than a favorable light.
