Obama introduced by crook who stole from his former boss

By Capitol Hill Blue
July 9, 2012

He says he lost his job. No wonder

If it is true that one is judged by those associated with you then President Barack Obama needs to fire whomever vets folks for his campaign rallies.

On Friday, the Ohio man picked by the campaign to introduce Obama at a rally stole trade secrets from a former boss and still owes a court judgement of a half million dollars.

Reports The Associated Press:

An Ohio man who says he once lost his job and introduced President Barack Obama at a rally on Friday had been accused of stealing trade secrets by a former boss.

Court records show that Daniel Potkanowicz and a business partner in the Youngstown area were ordered to pay $500,000 to Clearview Window & Door after a judge ruled in 2009 that they had violated trade secrets.

The Vindicator newspaper in Youngstown reports that the two partners have not paid back the money.

Potkanowicz told the newspaper that he didn’t want to talk about his past.

Oops.

    What a fitting tribute…a crook introducing another crook!

    Perhaps Obama shouldn’t be “talking about his past” either.
