School seals records on Obama's service with radical Ayers
LA Times ^ | 8/20/08 | Andrew Malcom

These annoying journalists are at it again, trying to poke around into papers in the background of candidates' lives. This time it involves freshman Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, his friend and former radical activist William Ayers and the University of Illinois.

The university has refused to release records related to the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's past service for a nonprofit educational project that put him in contact with activist Ayers, a 1960s-era radical who helped found an organization advWilliam Ayers former 60s radical activist and friend of Senator Barack Obama posed for this photo for Chicago Magazine in 2001 to promote his bookocating violence for political change.

Ayers is now an education professor at the school.

The university's Chicago campus maintains that the donor of the records that document the work of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge has not officially handed over ownership rights and, therefore, the school cannot open the documents to public inspection.

The university says it is "aggressively pursuing" an agreement with the donor, and as soon as an agreement is reached, the collection will be made accessible to the public.

Gee. No birth certificate, no IL Senate records, no thesis, no Selective Service Registration record. Good thing he's being so well vetted.

Let me take a wild guess that these records will be released right after the election.

What for?

I expect the university will be persuing this collection of materials not only aggressively, but indefinitely too.

"former radical activist William Ayers and the University of Illinois."

What's this "former"?

“The university says it is “aggressively pursuing” an agreement with the donor, and as soon as an agreement is reached, the collection will be made accessible to the public.”

Reminds me of OJ Simpson who promised to aggressively pursue the real killer. Never found him...even though he must have checked every golf course in the nation! Go figure.

The university will stall and stall until it’s too late if they get their way. Hopefully enough pressure is put to bare on them and they make the files public.

They’re trying to hide Obama from the public. No doubt about it.

No birth certificate, no IL Senate records, no thesis, no Selective Service Registration record.

And no TV or internet Ads stating these facts so far.

527’s to pick up these hot topics? They may be waiting for the V.P. pick to do a one-two punch.

Isn't it the truth! We know less about this Presidential-wanna-be than any candidate in recent history.

“These annoying journalists are at it again, trying to poke around into papers in the background of candidates’ lives.”

Typo. I believe the proper spelling is:

These annoying journalists are at it again, ignoring criminal and terrorist connections of leftwingers they favor.

The University is busy, as I write this, destroying what they can and re-writing what they can’t. I am also suspicious about the timing of hussein’s vacation to Hawaii last week. Wonder if he needed some face time with the keeper of records there?

We know all we need to know. Sealed records be damned!

Ayers founded the organization and Obama was it’s Chairman of The Board.

We know all we need to know, Ayers and Obama scammed $100M+ from the Annenberg Foundation and distributed it thru the sham Chicago Education Project to their Chicago Way political hack buddies such as R. Daley who has conveniently sealed all records. The damage to the BHO Campaign will grow as long as this stays in the newz...expect some distraction soon...VP nom?

Wouldn't the donor be Bill Ayers?

I wouldn't want to hang until he gives his OK.

I emailed it to World Net Daily a few hours ago. Admittedly they’re far from perfect but do have a lot of readership.

Maybe some folks should send the story too.
