Obama, Pfleger and Earmarks

Erick 31 May 2008 5 Comments

Barack Obama has thrown Rev. Michael Pfleger under the bus. Pfleger took Hillary to task, claiming she felt she should win over a black man.

CBS News notes that Pfleger is “another pastor friend.”

But he’s much more than that. Pfleger and Obama have had a long relationship. Pfleger backed Obama against Bobby Rush when Obama ran in 2000 for Congress.

Already by that time, Pfleger was on record supporting radicals like Louis Farrakhan.

Pfleger is a campaign contributor to Obama, in addition to being yet another “spiritual mentor,” and Obama got a $225,000.00 earmark for Pfleger’s church when Obama was in the state legislature in Illinois.

    I’m still betting it will be Gore-Obama.

    Funny how this never makes the big news casts?

    Joe,

    The Chicago Daily Observer is big news.

    In fairness, the Red State blog cites the New York Times and Chicago Tribune in the analysis.
