Where Obama got all of that money

From the likes of U.K. comic Eddie Izzard, who proudly claims to have donated monetarily to Obama's campaign on this CNN video.

Since the giving of funds to a candidate's campaign by a foreign national is illegal, that was quite an admission, and one the Federal Election Commission should immediately ask him to explain.

This news dovetails nicely with the London Times's reporting of how Obama's Aunt Zeituni Onyango, living in the U.S. illegally in public housing in Boston, had managed to scrape up some dough to give to the fund as well.

Maybe a large number of unallowed donations like Izzard's and Onyango's are why the Obama campaign is refusing to identify all of its small donors (those who contribute less than $200), claiming that it is just too difficult to do so, even though one can search for similar donors to McCain's campaign quite easily right here.

Why chafe under the constraints of Federal matching fund rules, when you can break your word and the law simultaneously and use the entire world as your piggy bank?
