NEW YORK Sen. Barack Obama, with a donation of nearly $1 million, and a son of Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi were among the biggest contributors to the presidential campaign of controversial Kenyan leader Raila Odinga, according to an internal document obtained by WND.
The memo was prepared by the head of Odinga's campaign finance accounting section, Shakeel Shabbir, as an official report delivered to the national treasurer for Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement party, or ODM.
Among the 72 individuals and organizations that contributed money to Odinga's 2007 presidential run in Kenya, Shabbir lists "Friends of Senator B.O." as having donated 66,000,000 Kenyan schillings, about $950,000.
Saif el-Islam Gadhafi, the Libyan strongman's second oldest son, reportedly donated 53,450,000 Kenyan schillings, about $765,000.

Nice. I hope McCain’s geezers are reading FR today.
There’s SO much information coming out about him I can’t even keep up with it.
The McCain campaign might do best to grab one of these issues and stick to it.
Since there’s like a million scandals..
If I can’t keep up with it then I know the average Joe misses 90 percent of it.
It's WingNut Doily, after all. What else would you expect?
Satan himself is running for POTUS! Will no one care? Will this one stick? Call everyone you know to get out and show up on Election Day! I mailed off my absentee vote for McCain/Palin today and praying that it will get counted.
Praying from Italy
In a twisted way, this makes me think of 1992 - and all of the bimbo info about Slick Willy that kept dribbling out and mostly being ignored by the media. Well, he got elected anyway, and the bimbo info just kept on and on and he made at least the one “mistake” that we know about during his time in office...
With Obama - it’s a very different kind of info trickling out and being ignored by the MSM - but the lesson here is that these people don’t change their stripes.
Bill was a womanizer before he was POTUS and continued while he was POTUS when the stakes were much higher. Obama is a Marxist with strong ties to all manner of radicals around the world and he will be still be so if he is elected. This isn’t just about “personal matters” or whatever lame excuse they all used for BillyJeff...Obama is dangerous and it is ludicrous that the media are ignoring so much.
I am ill.
So, he can donate almost $1 million dollars to an Islamo-Fascist GENOCIDAL Wannabe Dictator, but yet his brother is living in a shack?
And poor people REALLY believe he is going to “help” them? He won’t even help his own FAMILY what makes people think he honestly cares about AMERICA?
Electing this clown, Obama, is wrong on so many levels, one doesn’t know where to start.
MSM crickets chirping........
Therein lies the problem.
I agree with your comments.
Using cutouts, just like any skilled crime boss.
Mantra from the MSM!
Obama is one sick puppy and a useful tool for hard core marxists and muslim oriented dictators but the voters do not care.
His answer would be “no”. If you press it that “Friends of B.O.” gave $950,000, he would say, “B.O. may be me, but even if it is, I can’t control what people do, even if they feel they are honoring me.” You might get some traction by pointing out that Odinga visited the US in 2004-6 several times, and that Obama accompanied him, but 1) you’ve lost the public already, and 2) he will simply deny that they were fundraising events. At the very least Obama will simply throw Odinga under the bus, “This is not the Raila Odinga I knew.”
The headline is correct now after being changed from "Obama gave $1 million to Kenyan Muslims' ally".
Plus many aren't earing anything.
They just know Bush has us in this war and they aren’t loving the war.
Despite Democrats being responsible for the economic crisis, it is Bush who is seen as being the party in office and he gets wrongly the bad will.
I was listening to 640am at 5:30am.
Listener called in to speak of this story.
Bill Handle didn't hear about it.
Listener tells him it was in the Washington Post, and who the author is.
When the author is mentioned, about three people speak up on the mike to say the author had a book against Obama where EVERYTHING in it was all proved “FALSE”.
We know that is bunk, but that is what we have to put up with and when you get nonpolitical savvy people listening, they remain at ease with Obama when they shouldn't be IMO.
I’ll finish it for you
even if he is my cousin I could not disown him
he not on our staff , hes not being paid by us and he does not speak for our staff
maybe an AD could show obama saying all the same thing about his radical associations
just imagine if we had a free professional media who actually could report the news and actually could do some reporting along with investigating
yes just imagine
he can sauy that then say quickly about odinga and then tell the folks to google it
love to see obamas face if he brought up odinga and so he should
the only reason why the media ran with Ayers is because Palin brought it up on live TV and the media had no choice
