Barack Obama’s Aunt Zeituni Onyango, who is living in the Boston slums, is in the US illegally.
After the mess about his impoverished half brother in Kenya, the Obama camp has been hesitant to speak about Obama’s relatives.
She refused to leave the country when ordered by an immigration judge, so she faces non-criminal charges.
Campaign spokesman Bill Burton says, “Senator Obama has no knowledge of her status but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws be followed.”
Zeituni has made small political donations to her nephew amounting to $260. Since all her donations were under $200, they were not required to be listed individually on FEC reports.
John McCain reports every donation regardless of size and has called on Obama to do the same. The reporting of all donations would help reveal illegal contributions, such as Zeituni’s.
