Do I detect a slight Whiff of Hillary?
Parking Tickets? roflmao
parking tickets 17 years late 2 hours, 52 minutes ago
BOSTON - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record) got more than an education when he attended Harvard Law School in the late 1980s. He also got a healthy stack of parking tickets, most of which he never paid.
The Illinois Senator shelled out $375 in January — two weeks before he officially launched his presidential campaign — to finally pay for 15 outstanding parking tickets and their associated late fees.
The story was first reported Wednesday by The Somerville News.
Obama received 17 parking tickets in Cambridge between 1988 and 1991, mostly for parking in a bus stop, parking without a resident permit and failing to pay the meter, records from the Cambridge Traffic, Parking and Transportation office show.
He incurred $140 in fines and $260 in late fees in Cambridge in all, but he paid $25 for two of the tickets in February 1990.
Jen Psaki, a spokeswoman for the Obama campaign, dismissed the tickets as not relevant.
"He didn't owe that much and what he did owe, he paid," Psaki said on Wednesday. "Many people have parking tickets and late fees. All the parking tickets and late fees were paid in full."
And then yesterday, trying to Whitewater his butt over investments he LOST money on.
Come on, Hill, be a little bit subtle. Paint him as Uncle Tom or something creative!

Of course the Clintony camp, along with members in the media, are busy at work smearing people. They did it for Billy and they'll help Hillary. You'll see both Obama and Guiliani get the works the next couple of years since they are seen as the biggest threats to their queen.
