Smoking Gun: Man sues Obama, Dems over response to his tawdry sex-and-drugs tale
Smoking Gun ^ | 2/14/08 | staff

Posted on 02/14/2008 8:12:26 AM PST by pissant

FEBRUARY 14--Ratcheting up the crazy, the Minnesota man who last month posted a YouTube video in which he claimed to have engaged in a sex-and-drugs party with Senator Barack Obama has filed a federal lawsuit against the presidential candidate and the Democratic party, charging that he is being subjected to a vicious slander campaign. Larry Sinclair contends that he has been unfairly targeted after surfacing last month with claims (entirely unsubstantiated, of course) that he "personally engaged in sexual activity and personally used illegal drugs in November 1999" with Obama, then an Illinois state representative. In his video, Sinclair claims that he met Obama at an "upscale lounge in Chicago," where they knocked back some drinks before continuing the party in Sinclair's limo (where the sex and drugs part of the story supposedly transpired). In his U.S. District Court complaint, a copy of which you'll find below, Sinclair seeks a court order directing the Democratic National Committee to cease making "smear and slanderous claims" about him. Sinclair, who is serving as his own lawyer, charges in the February 11 lawsuit that his civil rights have been violated by the politician and his party. Sinclair did not return a message left on his answering machine. (3 pages)

The Smoking Gun has picked up on it apparently now. Go to their site to read the complaint of harrassment he filed.

Gee, will the Smoking Gun guys be all over Court TV and other media today?

As they are when a Republican is accused?

Na.

Note to Sinclair - better vacuum that limo real well before you get thrown in the pokie.

I haven't followed this story, but if he did make the accusation without having any evidence I have a hard time feeling sorry for him being "unfairly slandered".

Um, he’s acting as his own lawyer??? I’m still not sure what basis he has for a lawsuit ... probably none. This is sounding more like a weird crackpot (no pun intended) fabrication.

Of course not. They even call him a kook. At least they reported it. It IS news when a major candidate is accused of this stuff.

You know, I know this is 99.99% likely false, but if it were proven true, I would quit my job right now and just park my ever-widening rear end in front of the TV, because I will fill dozens of Tivos recording the reaction of the Obama-nation. And if you think I would miss the talking heads trying to “spin” an Obama sex party, brother, you’d better just get on down the road back to the big city.

It also just occurred to me that if it is true, the Hollywood moguls should renege on the deal with the writers, because this would take up broadcasts 24/7 and be totally free.

His evidence is receipts that he was there, willingness to take a lie detector test, and claim he will be corroborated by the Limo driver.

But...
But...

I thought Democrats believed it was “THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE ALLEGATIONS” that mattered??

Anyone around here old enough to remember THAT line?

Definitely. Usual suspects. Usual tactics. And some here buy into it. Even if true, will change nothing unless guy has a tape of Obama snorting and boinking. Even then, true believers won’t care.

He sounds, in fact, like the unlamented Jack Thompson, who briefly posted of FR, back in the early days.

They already don’t care that he admits being a cokehead.

Being a faggot would actually draw more of Hillarys voters away, and give him another level of ‘protection’ against attacks.

Nope. It was on a link on the related thread. He just claims the media outlets he went to verified the story before burying it, and that he has the hotel receipts and the testimony of the limo driver/owner....I personally will wait for the evidence to come out in court. MIGHT be true, might not me. I'm not a Democrat. These are serious charges, but it's the veracity of the evidence that counts.

Maybe he got out knowing how the muzzies feel about homos and got out of islam before he got too deep.

His wife looks like she wears the pants in the relationship.

Same thing with hillary. Wouldn’t having a lesbian affair with a Muslim agent make her a BETTER Democrat?

I can hear his press confession now...

“Throughout my life, I have grappled with my own identity, who I am. As a young child, I often felt ambivalent about myself, in fact, confused.

And so my truth is that I am a half-black, half-Muslim, coke-snorting, gay American....”

Nothing about Urkel Obama would surprise me. Engaging in deviant sexual behavior is viewed as a badge of honor and accomplishment by many in the demorat party.
