Let the mud slinging begin
Looks as though the Hillary camp is dishing some mud at Obama. As Obama draws more funds and support away from Hillary you can expect more mud to be thrown about by her and her Old Media political hacks.
From the NY Times
Less than two months after ascending to the United States Senate Barack Obama bought more than $50,000 worth of stock in two speculative companies whose major investors included some of his biggest political donors.
One of the companies was a biotech concern that was starting to develop a drug to treat avian flu. In March 2005, two weeks after buying about $5,000 of its shares, Mr. Obama took the lead in a legislative push for more federal spending to battle the disease.
The most recent financial disclosure form for Mr. Obama, an Illinois Democrat, also shows that he bought more than $50,000 in stock in a satellite communications business whose principal backers include four friends and donors who had raised more than $150,000 for his political committees.
A spokesman for Mr. Obama, who is seeking his party’s presidential nomination in 2008, said yesterday that the senator did not know that he had invested in either company until fall 2005, when he learned of it and decided to sell the stocks. He sold them at a net loss of $13,000.
Obama has made ethics a cornerstone of his campaign and this article seems to be designed to show that he is not the Washington outsider his campaign is portrays him to be. It would be my guess that these revelations are coming from or at least contributed to by the campaign that would benefit most from a meltdown in Obama’s support. The Clinton camp plays the dirty politics game better than anyone, Obama supporters should be expecting much more mud coming thier way….
