The Obama campaign has accepted contributions from a foreign national. According to an article in the New York Post, Chris Walker, a British citizen, was able to make two $5.00 donations through the Obama campaign website.  He used an Arkansas address and a New York zip code and the donations went through.  

Mr. Walker then tried at Romney's web site and the transaction was rejected as the address given and the address on the card.  Further, the Romney site then asked for the three digit code on the back of the card. 

The Obama campaign took in some $2,000,000.00 from donors that did not provide zip codes or incomplete zip codes according to the FEC for September.  One wonders how many of these donations were actually from foreign nationals.  The Obama campaign claims it is only a minor technical glitch.  Strikes me that that much money in questionable donations is more than minor.
