Is Obama Campaign Cash Quashing Eligibility Suits?

FEC shows more than $1 million paid to top law firm since election


Obama may be using campaign funds to stomp out eligibility lawsuits brought by Americans, as his campaign has paid more than $1 million to his top lawyer since the election.

According to Federal Election Commission records, Obama For America paid $688,316.42 to international law firm Perkins Coie between January and March 2009.

The campaign also compensated Perkins Coie for legal services between Oct. 16, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2008 – to the tune of $378,375.52.

Robert Bauer of Perkins Coie – top lawyer for Obama, Obama's presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee and Obama's Organizing for America – is the same Washington, D.C., lawyer defending President Obama in lawsuits challenging his eligibility to be president.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Millions of campaign, ill-gotten, cash to spend defending his Kenyan birth.

Another great untold Obama Story: THE MONEY!

Obama raised about $1Billion for his campaign, and spent no more than $750 Million. We can add in the above amounts too regarding the Birth Certificate.

That $250Million is, of course, the "Change" the man be talkin'bout. As in, "I keeps the change. BTW, that is perfectly legal, IF properly accounted. This little perk goes largely unnoticed, but it is the foundation of many a politician's family fortune.

Ralph Nader has made collecting campaign funds which he never spends his life's work. Even Pat Buchanan picked up $12M, Hanoi ohn Kerry $17 Million.

But B.Hussein Obama has them all beat.

One of the things at the top of the list I can't stand about Obama is his in-your (our) - face, arrogance!

I sure hope Obama's grandmother in Africa, the one insisting she attended his birth in Kenya, is in hiding. Natural causes may soon be upon her if she isn't.

Also, does it strike anyone one as odd that nothing has been said about the grandmother who sacrificed and raised Obama. It was announced on election day that she died and that was it. Obama went about not seeming even concerned or grieved. But then, he did hire most of the Clinton people who knew how to take care of possible future problems.

Conservatives are screaming for Obama's birth certificate. Obama is spending millions to hide it. And the news media says nothing. That tells me that many in the media suspect that Obama may not be American born. They are going to cover for their man, the guy they helped put in office.

Normally I don't believe in conspiracies. However, Obama's whole life seems to be one big conspiracy and I know the MSM is heavily biased. Therefore, I believe Obama is hiding his birth certificate because it will show him to not be an American.

Right on, Tom, Anybody who dares threaten a lawsuit are jumped on and told they will be severely punished with punitive damages and sued to the furtherest letter of the law.

There word that the clerks at the Supreme court have be waylaying alot of the cases challanging the Soutpiel.

They have got to be really scared of this thing blowing up in their faces.

I still say he got most of his money from the saudis and the chicoms. Maybe his presidential campaign is where they put their money after they engineered the "economic crisis".

BobF, that's what I wanted to know as well. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there hasn't been any autopsy released yet, has there? On the night of the election I was thinking of his grandmother and two words popped into my head "air embolism".

BobF., that really is interesting for sure.
The way Obama has treated his entire family
is odd to me. It is as though he does not
care about any of them. Not one single
natural reaction that I can tell about any
one of them.

Tom, I agree, same here too, I am not into
conspiracie's. I kind of let my gut tell
me if something is not right. Like the
Ron Brown gun shot to the head with the
Clinton's being suspect. And we were
supposed to believe he only died from the
plane crash into the mountain. How many
die in a plane crash with a bullet hole
in their head.

The things you said about how it breaks
down about the birth certificate is exactly
why it will always be a hgue question. Obama
is the one that keeps it going, since it is
such a simple question but so important to our

Mark, that is something I just don't
understand. I like Clarence Thomas and
all the other good ones so much. And I
know those are so huge on our Constitution
and all and yet they want to avoid this
whole thing.
I realize they are concerned about riots
not only here in America but all over the
world. But no one is above the law and no
one should be made exempt when it comes to
our Constitution like they are allowing
Obama to do. grrrr
