Look at the WHOIS entry for AS3130, and notice in the comments field:
http://psg.com/as3130/

"Regarding strange announcements by AS 3130 of prefixes in  
98.128.0.0/16" is in the big headings on the top of that page.

He is no doubt announcing it with an origin AS of 3130 so no person or  
router complains about inconsistent origins.
