Obama: More Bogus Contributions Surface

Earlier today I posted about Obama and campaign finance fraud. It didn't take long for more evidence to surface. From CBS News:
CBS News has learned that two donors to the Obama campaign that gave a total of $7,722 appear to have made their contributions under fake names that look like they were written by a mouse running across a keyboard: Dahsudhu Hdusahfd of Df, Hawaii with the following employer CZXVC/ZXVZXV and Uadhshgu Hduadh listed as living in Dhff, Florida listed their employer as DASADA/SAFASF.

CBS News did not find any records of these last names, towns or employers anywhere else.
Caught in the act, it looks like Obama will be returning these contributions. But his history of returning illegal contributions after promising to do so is poor.

I am surprised to read about this from CBS. The last story of improprieties in campaign contributions came from Newsweek. I'm really shocked that either of them published a story that could hurt Obama in any way, shape, or form. I guess editors have to sleep sometime and stories get past them.
