According to a report posted to the website of Austin, Texas, NBC-affiliate, KXAN, presidential candidate Ron Paul (pictured) is getting significant contributions from identity thieves. The report goes on to say that there may be nothing that law enforcement can do about it.

The amounts have been rather minor, says the report. It became news when several people noticed unauthorized donations of $5 or $10 dollars appearing on their credit card statements. Representatives for the candidate say they have discovered more than a dozen mysterious $5 contributions over several days and are working with the banks to refund the money.
