According to Federal Election Commission documents filed by the Obama campaign, Onyango has contributed $260 to Obama over a period of time. Under federal election law, only U.S. citizens or green-card holders are legally permitted to give money to campaigns. Onyango, who listed her employer as the Boston Housing Authority, gave in small increments to the Obama campaign. Her latest contribution was $5 on Sept. 19.
Election laws are ridiculous, arbitrary, capricious, and deliberately complicated. But, hey, the law is the law, right? Obama certainly thinks so, which leads to something even worse for him:
A statement given to the AP by Obama's campaign said, "Senator Obama has no knowledge of her status but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws be followed."
Does that mean he wants to deport her? That seems like a cold, callous thing to do. Do you really want a president who's that cold and callous? If you had an aunt living in America "illegally" (sheesh) and you had a chance to help her, wouldn't you do it? Not if you're a real "law and order" type, like Obama.
But that's not the worst news for Obama. Apparently Garry Trudeau has created a "Doonesbury" comic strip predicting an Obama win.
I never thought I would say this, but it looks bad for Obama. So bad, in fact, that I have put together a picture of what President McCain will look like. Expect him to be wearing this outfit at his inauguration:
