Start 'Em Young

Campaign donors to the 2008 presidential elections are recorded to be as young as 2 years old.
Elrick Williams's toddler niece Carlyn may be one of the youngest contributors to this year's presidential campaign. The 2-year-old gave $2,300 to Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.).
Now there's a politically saavy kid!
I wonder what kind of job she holds or how she came about making the crucial decision to support Sen. Obama.

Maybe she's hoping he'll swing by and kiss her.
But that would be illegal - you know, giving campaign money in return for favors.

Egads... this kind of nonsense really has to stop.
I think you can drive a truck through this campaign finance loop hole, and really...why do we have campaign finance reform restrictions again?

By the way ... care to see who giving what to who in this campaign?
