  •  He's not raising money (18+ / 0-)

    from the English. At least, not openly - his campaign is only allowed to raise money from American citizens, in this case, expats living in England.

    His SuperPACs can raise money from anyone, anywhere, without disclosing it. Even England.

      Of course, if the Republicans really believed that campaign contributions are free speech, then laws against a candidate "listening" to what foreigners have to "say" are unconstitutional.

      The word, "citizen," doesn't appear once in the entire Bill of Rights. On a more theoretical level, if there's a truth out there and only a foreigner has the courage to publicize it, does that mean the voters don't need to know it?

      The same reasoning applies to the time President Clinton was caught receiving contributions from foreigners like Riady; but the Republicans will just have us shake the Etch a Sketch on their failure to come to his defense back then.
