Excellent find. I wonder what he lied about on his application?
Thank you for sharing!
Place of birth, obviously.
His name? He was Barry Soetoro before he became Barack Obama. I believe the application has a question to the effect "Full Licensed Name" to which he entered "Barack Hussein Obama". The next question was "Full Former Name(s)" to which he answered "none".

Barack Obama fraudulently applied to the Illinois Bar.
Obama had 17 unpaid parking tickets from his days at Harvard.
Obama omitted his aliases of Barry Soetoro and Barry Obama.
Obama admitted to drug use when he was younger and there is strong reason to believe he was still using drugs.
Probably more than 1 lie, but I did read that he claimed that he had no AKA names. A lie since he also went by his stepfather’s name.
He answered ‘no’ to, “did he have any aliases.” I am pretty sure this has come up in the past.
