Multiple sources tell us Hillary Clinton’s campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what’s supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website. Carol Mahre has been charged multiple times after signing up for a one-time donation. Her son, Roger Mahre, is an attorney who filed a complaint with Minnesota’s attorney general.
Carol Mahre, an 81-year-old grandmother of seven from Minnesota, is one of the victims of Clinton’s campaign donor fraud scandal. In March, Mahre said she made a one-time $25 donation via Clinton’s official campaign website. However, when she received her U.S. Bank card statement, she noticed multiple $25 charges were made. Mahre, who said in an interview she only contributed $25 because she’s “not rich” and that’s all she could afford, contacted her son, Roger Mahre, to help her dispute the unauthorized charges.
Roger, who is an attorney, told the Observer that he called the Clinton campaign dozens of times in April and early May in an attempt to resolve the issue. “It took me at least 40 to 50 phone calls to the campaign office before I finally got ahold of someone,” Roger said. “After I got a campaign worker on the phone, she said they would stop making the charges.”Incredibly, the very next day, Carol’s card was charged yet again and the campaign had never reversed the initial fraudulent charges.
Wells Fargo bank’s fraud department is “inundated with calls from low-income Clinton supporters reporting repeated unauthorized charges.”
The Observer media outlet – which is owned by Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner — has interviewed sources exclusively for its report alleging how the Hillary Clinton campaign has been systematically overcharging her “poorest supporters” with campaign donation debits, and that its method for doing so is the same kind bank fraud departments routinely see engaged in by “pornography companies.”
According to the Observer, Clinton supporters believed they were making a small, one-time donations directly through the Clinton campaign website, but allegedly found out that their bank accounts were being debited routinely for unauthorized amounts:
The overcharges are occurring so often that the fraud department at one of the nation’s biggest banks receive up to 100 phone calls a day from Clinton’s small donors asking for refunds for unauthorized charges to their bankcards made by Clinton’s campaign. One elderly Clinton donor, who has been a victim of this fraud scheme, has filed a complaint with her state’s attorney general and a representative from the office told her that they had forwarded her case to the Federal Election Commission.
“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” a source, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of job security, from the Wells Fargo fraud department told the Observer. The source claims that the Clinton campaign has been pulling this stunt since Spring of this year. The Hillary for America campaign will overcharge small donors by repeatedly charging small amounts such as $20 to the bankcards of donors who made a one-time donation. However, the Clinton campaign strategically doesn’t overcharge these donors $100 or more because the bank would then be obligated to investigate the fraud. Clinton for the little guy, or not.
