Disclosure of Obama’s Illegal Immigrant Aunt Blamed on Media

According to a an article in the Washington Post today, the disclosure that Barack Obama’s aunt may have violated “privacy policy.”

“The Department of Homeland Security is investigating whether its privacy policy was violated after a news organization reported that an aunt of Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama is an illegal immigrant from Kenya, officials said yesterday.”

The Washington Post is not the only one on the case. As Mark Levin writes in The Corner, Politico is also investigating this security breach. Not the security breach that Obama’s aunt is an illegal immigrant who was instructed by the Immigration Department to leave the country in 2004, but who gave the information to the media!

Obama’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, donated $260 to her nephew’s campaign and had planned to vote for him. Unfortunately, “Given the information that has been brought to our attention, the contributions are being refunded,” said Ben LaBolt, an Obama campaign spokesman. Not to mention the planned vote has also been refunded.

With hundreds of millions of dollars collected in the true Chciago style of being virtually untraceable, I’m amazed the Obama campaign could identify his aunt’s contributions of only $260.

The really big story in this kafuffle, and the one no one is talking about, is why it took The Times of London, England to bring this news to light. Where was the Boston Herarld on this? Where was the New York Times? Still up in Wasilla digging through Sarah Palin’s garbage?
