Elton John Violating US Election Laws?

Sir Elton John plans on performing a fundraising concert for Hillary Clinton next month. I even got an email invite from Hillary herself. Unfortunately, the whole concert idea might be on the wrong side of the law.

The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) prohibits:

"Any foreign national from contributing, donating or spending funds in connection with any federal, state, or local election in the United States, either directly or indirectly. It is also unlawful to help foreign nationals violate that ban or to solicit, receive or accept contributions or donations from them. Persons who knowingly and willfully engage in these activities may be subject to fines and/or imprisonment."

Uh oh. Are they going to Cage the Songbird? Not likely, says Camp Clinton. Hillary's campaign maintains that foreigners are allowed to volunteer on an uncompensated basis.

Do you think the concert amounts to donating funds indirectly? Or do Elton and Hillary have their Hearts in the Right Place?
