Bill Ayers and Barack Obama shared an office. Ayers Small Schools Workshop, the one Obama directed all that money too is located at 115 S. Sangamon Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607 [Note the link is to a year 2000 version of their website]. Heres a screen grab from the websites footer:
In 1998, the address for the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, where Obama presumably worked, was 115 S. Sangamon Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607. Heres a copy of their 1998 tax return with that address:
The CAC moved to a new address sometime in 1999 or 2000, but the shared office probably persisted for at least three years. I cant say for sure because 1998 is the earliest tax information available online. [Correction: I can say for sure that they shared the same building for the years 1995-1998. Here is a 1995 progress report from the CAC with the same address.]
Now remember, the NY Times described Obama and Ayers as having crossed paths. Ben LaBolt, Obamas spokesman said:
Mr. LaBolt said the men first met in 1995 through the education project, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, and have encountered each other occasionally in public life or in the neighborhood.
Im going to suggest that two guys working in the same building for a period of years probably crossed paths pretty often. For all we know, they had lunch together on a daily basis. Maybe, in an effort at conservation, they were even carpool buddies. After all, Ayers is a guy from Obamas neighborhood.
Would someone at the Times like to contact Mr. LaBolt for a follow-up?
Update: Made the correction above. Also, Obama was a state senator from 1996-2004. However, he still likely spent some significant time at the Sangamon street address, especially in 1995. But even after his election he would presumably be working on his CAC duties at the Sangamon office, not from some other location.
According to this letter dated 1995, Obamas office was on the 3rd floor:
And according to this memo dated 1996, Small Schools Workshop was also on the 3rd floor:
Do you think maybe Obama and Bill Ayers ran into each other once in a while?

Funny, factcheck used by CNN is sponsored by Annenberg.
The Left is full of liars, terrorists, fraudsters, mobsters, criminals and hypocrites. And they order lobster and caviar at the Waldorf after a speech about wealth re-distribution.
The insanity continues.

Whatever it is, if it exposes our Messiah as a liar, we at MSNB, CBS, NYT, WaPo, CNN, ABC, AP will have nothing to do with it.

More proof that 0bama is a total liar. More proof that the MSM is a complete rotting organ of the DNC. I wonder what 0bama would have to be guilty of for the MSM to say enough and report the full truth.

Friend of William Ayers who hired him for the position of Co-Director of the Small Schools Workshop with Ayers. Today Klonsky is the sole Director Small Schools Workshop.

I want this stuff on Odinga to come forth too. I think that would be a huge deciding factor for many people. This is one of his creepier associations and it doesn’t seem to have been covered by anyone yet. Maybe they’re waiting for just the right time.

Hope not! Hoping they will bring it forth at just the right time where he can’t lie his way out of it. Where people decide, man, just can’t trust this guy, gotta vote Mccain/Palin!

Keep digging, keep digging.
Who lives in NYC and can take some time to check out the old Obama address (339 East 94th Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where Barack Obama is believed to have lived during and after college) and the neighbors to find out who may STILL reside there from the 1980's?
SOMEONE MUST RECALL Obama and Ayers and Weathermen who frequented O's apartment there.
The old 'bomb factory' -- did Ayers live there? 11th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues at 18 West 11th Street in Greenwich Village. New York City Walk WITH PHOTOS of the apartment, as it looks now, that exploded when the bomb makers were in it.
Here's a link to some information that looks potentially promising from Trapshoot.com http://www.trapshooters.com/cfpages/thread.cfm?threadid=164920&Messages=6
From the Village Voice: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/archives/2008/10/john_mccains_go.php the Weather Underground, to which Ayers belonged, firebombed Murtagh's home in 1970. (Murtagh's father was a judge who was trying some Black Panthers.)
Maybe his office has a Bill Ayers address from the 1980's???
A letter from Bill Ayers dated Sept. 15, 2001! http://billayers.wordpress.com/2008/04/21/clarifying-the-facts-a-letter-to-the-new-york-times-9-15-2001/
Here's something that might locate a former resident near the apartment: Ed Gold writes at http://www.thevillager.com/villager_18/talkingpoint_gold.html
The parole of Kathy Boudin last week brought a rush of memories going back 33 years. I was sitting in my sixth floor office on 12th St. near Fifth Ave. shortly after noon on March 6, 1970, when a fierce explosion shook the building.
And Bill Ayers d@mning article is here: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9F02E1DE1438F932A2575AC0A9679C8B63
Hope my little foray into GoogleLand produces some results to those who live in NYC and can do some exploring.
