More On The Ayers-Obama Cover-Up

Thursday, August 21, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Mayor Daley’s defense of the Ayers-Obama friendship is noted below.

Now the Los Angeles Times picks up the story of the stonewalling going on about the terrorist’s foundation which Obama led.

Key background:

Ayers was instrumental in starting the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which was awarded nearly $50 million by a foundation to help reform Chicago schools. Obama was the first chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.

The cover-up continues. What did the foundation do? Where did the money go? (That’s a lot of money.) How much was Obama paid? How much did the Obama-led foundation funnel to Ayers? To other south side figures like Jeremiah Wright and Father Phleger? How closely did Obama and Ayers work on the foundation’s business? Can we get a look at the expense accounts please?

You don’t launch a big foundation and then turn it over to a stranger. The Ayers-Obama connection is obviously an important one, even though the MSM would prefer to pretend otherwise.

UPDATE: More key background here. (HT: Stanley Kurtz –who discovered and owns this story.)

Here’s a 2001 IRS 990 for the organization. Lots of money going out to public schools, barious partnerships and lots of fees paid to consultants.

UPDATE 2: Team Obama should be worried. Tom Maguire is interested.
