The woman who Obama sweetly described as "Aunt Zeituni" didn't want to talk to them even though she'd scrounged up some $260 to support Obama's campaign. It turns out, the woman who'd be left aside from the grandeur of her nephew's historic presidential campaign, has been living in the United States illegally.
The Associated Press found court documents showing Aunt Zeituni has been ordered to leave the U.S. and return to her home country of Kenya four years ago.
The campaign gave a statement to the AP said: "Senator Obama has no knowledge of her status but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws be followed."
There you go, Aunt Zeituni! Under the bus with Obama's gramma and Rev. Wright!
There's so much that's personally and politically offensive in this story I don't know where to start. First, the millionaire Obama leaves his aunt to live in the projects. Obama became rich through his best-selling books based on his own life story. Seems like he could have at least helped the aunt who helped make that story better to tell. So much for spreading the wealth.
Second, he takes her money even though she's an illegal alien. That is against the law. His campaign can't even screen out illegal money from his FAMILY MEMBERS. This underscores what a huge problem his campaign has had in the campaign finance department.
Last, I thought deportation was supposed to be inhuman and undoable. Wasn't that Obama's whole rationale for amnesty? He'll stick up for millions of other illegal aliens but not lift a finger to sponsor his own auntie to stay??
