Lehman Brothers: Obama’s Rezko-Auchi conflict of interest
Hawaii Free Press ^ | 09-17-08 | Andrew Walden

Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama was quick to blame the bankruptcy of Wall Street giant Lehman Brothers on Republicans’ “failed philosophy”. Obama’s September 15 comments were repeated throughout the media--yet reporters have not noted Obama’s glaring conflict of interest—the Lehman debt owed to a bank owned by the financier who loaned millions of dollars to Tony Rezko.

From the article:

“Here are some questions reporters should be asking Barack Obama:

Senator Obama: Lehman Brothers owes over $250 million to a bank owned in part by Nadhmi Auchi’s holding company. Auchi was a key financial backer of Tony Rezko. Sources indicate you met Auchi twice when he visited Chicago in 2004. If elected, how will your relationship with Rezko and Auchi affect your policy towards Lehman Brothers?

Senator Obama: There are reports that Nadhmi Auchi was in 2004-2005 seeking US residency while appealing his French court conviction in the ELF-Aquitaine case. If elected, would you look favorably on a US residency application from Auchi?

Senator Obama: You stated that the Lehman bankruptcy shows that Americans cannot afford four more years of the Republicans’ “failed philosophy”. Can Americans afford a President whose home was purchased with the assistance of now-convicted-felon Tony Rezko, a man characterized as having “permanent indebtedness” to Nadhmi Auchi?”

This article justifies a campaign ad with three pictures with a single line drawn linking picture 1, to picture 2 and picture 2 to picture 3, as follows:

Picture One - Nadhmi Auchi; caption: Nadhmi Auchim, Iraqi national, international billionaire, financial bag-man for Saddam Hussein, financial backer for Tony Rezko

Picture Two - Tony Rezko; Chicago political fixer and dual US-Syrian citizen, indicted on federal racketeering charges, personal financial backer for Barrack Obama

Picture Three - Barack Hussein Obama

It would be ignored. Forward to Mark Levin, Hannity, Drudge, Hewitt, Laura, et al.
