The fault here rests with the Congress of these United States. Under the separation of powers it is congress that is charged with passing laws and controlling expenditures. Congress has become a collection of politically impotent but well paid individuals whose primary concern is avoiding the responsibilities of their office, which might lead to controversy, so they can stay in office and keep the good times rolling. Violations of the law should be met with stoppage of funding and failure by the executive to enforce the law with impeachment.

"The Illegal-Donor Loophole" is the headline of a Daily Beast story by Peter Schweizer of the conservative Government Accountability Institute and Peter Boyer, former reporter at The New Yorker and The New York Times.

The article tells how Obama.com, a website owned by an Obama fundraiser who lives in China but has visited the Obama White House 11 times, sends solicitations mostly to foreign email addresses and links to the Obama campaign website's donation page.

The Obama website, unlike those of most campaigns, doesn't ask for the three- or four-digit credit card verification number. That makes it easier...
