Obama's Aunt Made Illegal Contribution to his Campaign

The Times reported on October 30th that Obama's aunt, was found living in a public housing complex in Boston, Zeituni Onyango, 56, is the half-sister of Mr Obama's Kenyan father. Apparently she is not a U.S. Citizen and is in fact living in the U.S. illegally.

She has according to the Times Online, made an illegal contribution to her nephew's campaign, in the amount of $260.00 dollars. The Times reports that according to the Federal Election Commission , "US election rules require that individuals making presidential campaign contributions be US citizens".

TheTtimes says that, after being confronted with this issue, the Obama's campaign issued a statement saying that, "Senator Obama had no knowledge of his aunt's immigration status, and that he believed all appropriate laws should be followed in dealing with the issue".

Do you see what I see, between the lines of this statement? Obama's dear aunt is just another person, he his tossing aside on his way to the top.

In his best-selling book Dreams From My Father Obama rights about his firs visit to his father's homeland in 1988, and she is a large character in his memoir. He wrote that she said, "Welcome home", and kissed him on both cheeks."
