Updated SUPRISE: AP: Obama aunt from Kenya living in US illegally

AP: Obama aunt from Kenya living in US illegally

WASHINGTON (AP) — Barack Obama's aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.

Uh oh!

Then according to The Times:

Ms Onyango is paid a small stipend for working as a health advocate in her housing complex and has donated $260 (£160) to her nephew's presidential campaign.

So she gets paid by the Govt and is in Govt housing as an illegal?

Someone at the Boston Housing Authority needs to be shit canned.

Does that mean Obama will have to give back her $260 as well?

Updated: Obama throws "Auntie Zeituni" under the bus

A statement given to the AP by Obama's campaign said, "Senator Obama has no knowledge of her status but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws be followed." Traveling with Obama in Nevada, campaign strategist David Axelrod declined to elaborate on the statement, but said: "I think people are suspicious about stories that surface in the last 72 hours of a national campaign."

Yes and especially suspicious that the AP would report anything with a negative connotation about The One.
