A Sept. 15 WorldNetDaily article by Aaron Klein portrays a claim that in 2000, "Barack Obama cited a job at an organization founded by former Weathermen radical Bill Ayers as evidence of his qualification for public office" as something that "contrasts sharply with multiple interviews as a presidential candidate in which he has sought to downplay his relationship with Ayers."
Completely lacking is any evidence that Obama done anything wrong through his relationship with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, or even that the CAC itself has done anything wrong. Indeed, as we've noted, those CAC papers right-wingers have made a big deal out of after official expressed an initial reluctance to release have uncovered nothing untoward, let alone illegal.
So instead, Klein concocts a conspiracy: Because Obama served a chairman of a group Ayers co-founded, the two have a "relationship."
Klein flogs this dead guilt-by-association horse a bit further by claiming that "While chairing the CAC, Obama approved grants to some controversial figures, including a group founded by Ayers and led by former communist leader Mike Klonsky, WND exposed yesterday." But again, Klein offers no evidence that Klonsky did anything untoward with those grants or even anything other than what the grant was for.
Klein appears to assume that people who once proclaimed to be communists should not be allowed to handle money. How utterly desperate of him is that?
