Irony Watch

Politico reports that the German Ambassador attended an Obama fund raiser:

Scharioth was invited to the Obama fundraiser by Frank Loy, according to Schulz, who said Loy assured Scharioth he could refrain from contributing, would be considered neutral and that “nobody (would) misunderstand it.”

Germans want a Democrat to win. No misunderstanding there. In fact, it's pretty clear (and nothing new).

If foreign nationals are barred from contributing to presidential campaigns, how did the ambassador get in the door? It cost $1,000 apiece. A loophole in McCain-Feingold?
