Mexican Drug Cartels Fundraising for Obama Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Feb 7, 2012, 12:15 AM
Mexican drug cartels have endorsed President Barack Obama's $1 billion re-election bid to the White House, while Mexican mafiosos are holding fundraisers for their favorite Democrat. Apparently, Obama offers 'hope' for a better business climate for Mexican assassins, kidnappers and drug bosses.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "two American brothers of a Mexican casino magnate who fled drug and fraud charges in the United States and has been seeking a pardon enabling him to return have emerged as major fundraisers and donors for President Barack Obama's re-election campaign."

Juan Jose Rojas Cardenas, AKA Pepe, the casino owner, skipped bail in Iowa in 1994 and fled the country. His name has been linked with violence and corruption in Mexico. In 2009, a State Department cable disclosed he was suspected of orchestrating the assassination of a business rival and bribing Mexican officials.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, "when the New York Times asked the Obama campaign early Monday about the Cardonas, officials said they were unaware of the brother in Mexico. Later in the day, the campaign said it was refusing the money raised by the family, which totaled more than $200,000."

Last autumn, Carlos Cardona and another brother in Chicago, Alberto Rojas Cardona, started raising cash for the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee. They had become key players for the Obama fundraising committee basing their activities and funneling cash into the Obama Democratic Party Machine in Chicago.
