An ongoing story of the American election that has ben fascinating me is the lawsuit filed by Pennsylvania attorney Philip J Berg alleging Barak Obama is inelegible to run for President. BERG - OBAMA CASE: LATEST which has also been chronicled here ( BERG vs OBAMA )
Following this story on the blogs (somehow it has missed traditional media completely - funny when you think how in the past rumours with less substance have brought down candidates) has led me to another ongoing thread, that concerning the relationship of Obama with the convicted mobster Tony Rezko. Stories of Obama's "business" association with Rezko surfaced when the gangster was arrested on corruption charges. Now convicted on numerous counts Rezko is reported to be looking for a deal, trading information on hia former associates in the Chicago political establishment for a reduced sentence. Again it is strange that the widely rumoured favours Obama received for helping people in "the olive oil business" (if you know what I mean) are ignored by mainstream media where in past campaigns and even in the present election less substantial stories have derailed well supported candidates.
Obama must have a fairy godmother I guess.
Finally there is the Larry Sinclair affair. Former rent-boy Sinclair alleges a sex and drugs encounter with Obama in 1999.
No wonder the Democrats are getting so desperate in their efforts to focus attention on Sarah Palin's bra size.
What I want to know is why can't our elections be this interesting?
LINK: Clinton suddenly keen on Obama. What's going on?
