Feds accuse Jho Low, Pras of funneling cash to Obama re-election campaign

The feds have slapped new charges against fugitive Malaysian playboy Jho Low — this time for alleged campaign-finance violations connected to President Obama’s 2012 re-election.

The latest allegations accuse Low of transferring $21.6 million to ex-Fugees rapper Prakazrel “Pras” Michel, who then moved $865,000 of that money to “straw” donors who contributed to an Obama fundraising committee.

The new indictment against the pair, unsealed Friday in Washington, DC, says the money was destined to “Candidate A.”

The link to Obama was first reported by Bloomberg News.

Michel is additionally charged with transferring another $1 million of Low’s money to an unidentified independent committee involved in the 2012 election.

“Michel recruited his friends, associates, and others to act as straw donors to make contributions,” the indictment alleges.

Low, 37 — whose whereabouts remain unknown — and Michel, 46, are charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States and making foreign and straw campaign contributions.

The “Ghetto Superstar” singer is already accused of conspiring with ex-DOJ official George Higginbotham to thwart the sprawling US probe into Low.

According to a civil suit filed in November, Michel and Higgenbotham helped Low funnel some $73 million in looted Malaysian funds into four US bank accounts in hopes of influencing the feds’ investigation.

Higginbotham has pleaded guilty in that case; Michel told Bloomberg News through his lawyer that he is innocent of the charges.

Despite his fugitive status, Low’s staff of lawyers and spokespeople still knows how to reach him. One spokesperson issued a statement Friday insisting, “Mr. Low is innocent.”

The statement, from the Madison Avenue p.r. firm Reevemark, continued, “Mr. Low has never made any campaign contributions directly or indirectly in the US, and he unequivocally denies any involvement in or knowledge of the alleged activities.”
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
