Taking Back America!
I stumbled across this interesting bit of information while surfing the political web for information about the candidates. This telling, eyewitness report comes from a journalist who was covering the Democratic National Convention. Although journalists are to remain neutral, unbiased, and impartial by not supporting one candidate over another so as to report professionally and accurately, it appears that wasn't the case at the DNC.

"Members of the media have apparently been using “fake” names to buy official Obama gear and contribute to the Obama campaign inside the Time Warner Cable Arena. ...
The souvenir stand was in a secure area only accessible to those with a media credential and buying campaign gear means contributing to the campaign, so we asked the woman working the cash register whether anyone at the press stand had been making purchases. Her answers were quite surprising.
The woman working at the souvenir stand told us she hadn’t been “too busy” during the day, but had seen business pick up in the past half hour or so. She then asked us whether we wanted to buy anything. When we informed her that our status as a reporter means we don’t buy campaign gear, she suggested a strategy other members of the media have apparently used to pick up their Obama swag.
“Have you ever thought of making up a fake name? That’s what the other guys do,” she said."
