Obama the Cypher
Jim Geraghty: “Does it bother anyone that a guy with political ambitions for his entire adult life has not left a paper trail?”
From the Chicago Sun-Times article on grants distributed by then-state-legislator Barack Obama.(Records from 1997 to 2000 weren’t available.)There’s a shock.
His state legislative office records may have been thrown out, he told us.
He’s never released a specific list of law clients, instead giving a list of all of his firm’s clients, numbering several hundred each year. His campaign will only confirm representation when the media comes to them with a specific case.
He won’t release his application to the state bar. He’s never released any legal or billing records to verify that he only did a few hours of work for a nonprofit tied to Tony Rezko.
He’s never released any medical records, just a one-page letter from his doctor.
