Is the Comelec paying attention??!! : How could Villar spend 2 billion plus on campaigining with only 29 million in cash declared in his SALN (2008)?

An interesting disqualification case against Villar by a lawyer brought up this interesting question given in the postś title.

If Villar claimed that his campaign funds came from his real estate businesses, specifically Vista Land and Lifescapes, Inc., which has Polar Property Holdings, Corp., Calveston Investments Limited, Althorp Holdings, Inc., Cameron Global Limited Golden Haven Memorial Park, Inc. and Cambridge Inc. as its shareholders, then this is an admission that he is violating Section 95 of the Omnibus Election Code (OEC),wwhich prohibits local corporations and foreign companies from giving political campaign contributions to any candidate in the elections!

Violation of the OEC is an election offense, which is punishable by disenfranchisement, one to six years imprisonment, and disqualificationf from holding public office.

What is the Comelec doing about this??!!!!
