A major donor to President Barack Obama has been accused of impersonating a banker and defrauding a businessman, touching off another controversy connected to his reelection campaign as it tries to deal with questions regarding another top contributor.

The donor, Abake Assongba of New York, and her husband contributed $50,000 to Obama’s reelection bid this year, according to campaign finance records, The Associated Press reported Monday. Assongba is currently dealing with a civil court case in Florida, where she has been accused of stealing $650,000 to build a new multimillion dollar home there, a charge her husband has denied.

Obama is the only candidate so far who has released his list of “bundlers” – those who arrange big-dollar donations for his campaign – but it has come at a price. Last month the campaign returned a $200,000 donation to Carlos and Alberto Cardona because they are brothers of a Mexican fugitive wanted on drug-related charges, AP reported.

Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt declined to comment to the AP, but told the wire service some 1.3 million people had donated to the president’s reelection bid and that the campaign deals quickly with donation issues.
