Scandal in Obama’s Past Finally Revealed


obama.jpgSpotted in Salon’s War Room, the Boston Globe is reporting today that Barack Obama paid $375 in late fees and fines for parking tickets racked up while he was at Harvard just two weeks before announcing his presidential bid. The man is clearly not presidential material: He should have had his daddy intervene on his behalf with the Traffic, Parking & Transportation Department. (Although I’ve heard it’s more intractable than the draft board ever was.)
