I highly encourage you to contact Kickstarter and ask them why they willingly chose to let a project that violated their community guidelines continue.

TO REGISTER A COMPLAINT WITH KICKSTARTER:

It seems that the only way to contact them is through this page:

http://www.kickstarter.com/contact

There's a drop-down menu of answers to "What can we help you with?" Pick "Something else," then "Using the site," then "Other." Then you can type in your question and details and submit it.
