    Default Where is Fianna Fail's US money?

    Where are Fianna Fail's missing Dollars? Today's Mail on Sunday's front page story by John Breslin in Washington shows that money raised by FF in America in the early 90s and registered with the US Dept. of Justice is $250K greater than the amount registered in Dublin. Also $82K was sent directly to FF in Dublin from America and never showed up in Party accounts.

    Where is it?

    Ask Albert, maybe Freeport.

    Probably in one of the other 3 or 4 threads on this exact topic.

    There are no other threads on this topic. It's brand spanking new information that appeared this morning. It is startling in the extreme. And it backs the 'fantasist' Gilmartin up on another wild allegation of his..

    It's quite telling that Fianna Fail supporters are dodging the difficult questions these days. It's getting harder to defend the indefencable. The guy from Friends of Fianna Fail didn't sound too happy from that article.

    This story is essentially and add-on to the Albert in the Bahamas story, which is already being discussed.

    Today's tribune. I imagine it's based on FOI requests or publicly available records. No allegations here. Actual records.

    The US State Department are very good at keeping records of what leaves the States as regards political donations. Despite what people believe SF get in "anonymous" US donations, the fact is, any donation over 50 dollars must be registered with the State Department, and is open to public scrutiny.

    Now, FF's books aren't, but could the Tribunal seek FF bank records ? There might be a lot of embarassment at FF HQ if it was shown that money shown as having left the States for FF, didn't ever make it to a FF bank account.

    No it isn't. It's a specific story about money going missing, not Albert or the Bahamas. Its about discrepancies in the records in America and Dublin.

    Stop pretending it isn't..
