An uncle of President Barack Obama was arrested last week in Framingham, Massachusetts, for allegedly operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, police Lt. Ronald Brandolini told CNN on Monday.

Onyango Obama was arrested on August 24 after failing a field sobriety test, Brandolini said.

An administration official confirmed to CNN that the arrested man is the half-brother of President Obama's father. There was no other administration comment immediately available.

According to a a federal law enforcement source who spoke on condition of not being identified, Onyango Obama was not legally in the United States and has been previously ordered removed from the country. His case is now going through the immigration process, the source said.

Wow, CNN. I wonder how many voters are hearing about Obama’s odd family tree for the first time?

I wonder if Obama said the police acted stupidly?

So he's safe then.

Not to harp on this...but the male side of the Obama family has been very prone to alcoholism.

If he did know, it is a 'high crime or misdemeanor' and you know what that means?

Hmmm, whatever happened to all of the special prosecutors???????

Even putting aside any embarrassment to Obama.

It illustrate the country is overflowing with illegal aliens, from all countries, and this is an epidemic.

Nice, two illegals in one family.

Me thinks that this is the tip of the iceberg.

In his book he says his uncle ‘was going to America, left and didn’t come back’. Twenty years...

According to this thread Howie Carr said he had both a drivers license and a Social Security card, although I didn't see anything in the thread whether they were forgeries or not.

Wasn’t this the uncle that one of Obama’s aunt or some relative said he had disappeared 25 years ago.

Well, if the guy is nailed for a DUI, isn't he deportable even under Barry's amnesty plan?

Yes, all the sources I'm seeing are saying this is the “Uncle Omar” who disappeared from Kenya after saying something about going to the U.S.

Didn’t his esteemed nephew have a phony Connecticut SS # in his shady, obscure past?
I bet he never took a driver’s test in his life.

He will be fined $100 and told to leave Massachusetts.

He will probably end up in Texas, where he will start attending college, where, because as an illegal immigrant, he will be eligible for in-state tuition fees and government college loans.

Does anyone know what this man’s source of income is and where he lives: Is it in public housing or what?

And how could he afford the SUV he was driving: Was it paid for? Did he have monthly payments? What year is it?

There is also the high price of gas, car insurance, and regular maintenance. How could he afford all that?

If Barkie doesn’t throw Uncle Omar under the bus and see that he’s departed the legal process could get dragged out into the middle of next year’s elections. We can hope it does. It could be a very big problem for “Ears”!

‘What is this man’s source of income and where does he live?’ Exactly...let’s find out which teats this illegal alien has been sucking on all these years...another Obama parasite on the body politic.

Runs in the family:

http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/michelle-obama-booze-binges

Michelle Obama - cracking under the pressure of being First Lady - is drinking way more than she should, friends fear. Longtime pals have been keeping a close eye on her White House booze intake for months, sources told The ENQUIRER, and her husband President Barack Obama even stepped in when she recently consumed too much alcohol. "When Barack saw Michelle drink more than she should at a recent dinner, he hit the roof. He told her, 'This is NOT going to turn into a problem!'" a close source told The ENQUIRER.

It omits much than that...

Obama’s illegal alien uncle has a valid social security number and driver’s license
