Sen. Barack Obama's campaign has admitted to receiving $33,500 in illegal foreign contributions from three brothers in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, but the left-wing Daily Kos website suggests WND – whose Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein investigated the story – might have concocted a convoluted scheme to make the Illinois senator look bad.The brothers in question – Monir, Hosan and Osama Edwan – spoke on the record about the online donations to the presidential candidate.
"It could be true that [donations] were made, but as a part of a deliberate set-up to make Obama look bad. ... Aaron Klein reports from the Israel for WND. ... Again, obviously if an actual illegal donation was actually made it should be returned, but it would be interesting to find out who really made it and why," reads an article on the Daily Kos site.
"By the way, Aaron Klein is clearly an [sic] conservative anti-Obama reporter for the ultra-right-wing WorldNetDaily," the site contends.
In response, WND editor and publisher Joseph Farah commended the Daily Kos team for "their imagination in suggesting WND actually set up the Palestinian donations to the Obama campaign."
"That's a good one! It was an elaborate sting operation by an independent news source not feeding at the Obama media trough, says Daily Kos. Talk about your twisted, convoluted conspiracy tales. … Maybe WND was also behind the forged Obama birth certificate published by Daily Kos.
"Making up these wacky stories shows the desperate lengths Daily Kos will go to deny their beloved candidate would do anything wrong," Farah added.
