FBI Raids Obama Friend's Home
October 3, 2008
The FBI on Wednesday raided the county offices of a former Illinois state senator who is a poker-playing buddy of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama.
According to Chicago authorities, the FBI visited the offices in Joliet, Ill., of Will County executive Larry Walsh, a longtime friend of Mr. Obama's, and his chief of staff Matt Ryan.
Mr. Walsh, who served in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2005, was endorsed by Mr. Obama in his county executive election bid. With the support of some of Mr. Obama's U.S. Senate volunteers, he easily defeated incumbent Republican Joseph Mikan.
Will County auditor Steve Weber confirmed that his office had been asked by the FBI to assist in an investigation, but he did not elaborate on the specifics.
Two FBI agents out of Chicago reportedly spent more than an hour in the Will County offices on Wednesday morning.

Ha Ha Ha
Kiss me Larry!
This man has more rogue connection and friends than anyone I have ever come across and yet he is still here .
still waiting for his birth certificate, of course he has hired the laywer who is from CAIR
Where did they raid his home? I only see offices raided.
This reflects the nature of politics in Chicago and Illinois in general. We’ve been “occupied” for as long as I can remember.

Does Barry have any normal friends that don’t receive tens of thousands of taxpayers’ dollars?
Dear Auntie Nan:
How’s that “Culture of Corruption” meme working for you these days, hhhmmmmmmm?
Does ZerO have ONE FRIEND that is not indicted,convicted,Domestic terrorist,or a Marxist or other assorted unamericans?
He is too cocky and looks down his nose at normal people. Kind of like Charlie Gibson that way.
WOW! I hope this has the same impact that the phony raid on Curt Weldon’s daughter had. (I doubt it will)
I’m shocked! /s
I can hear Barry now: “Yes, we played poker. But other that getting a beer for me and rubbing my feet from time-to-time, we never interacted.”
Wow, got that out with a straight face.
McCain's media buyer went on vacation in Ohio. On the rare occasion I see one, it's weeks old. Obama has a whole bunch of new TV and radio talking directly to the people promising to bring people together.
“He’s not the same Mr. Walsh I knew..”
"I knew it was you, Larry. You broke my heart!"
