In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group "Americans for Freedom of Information" (AFI) has released copies of President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental College. "The transcript indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia while an undergraduate at the school." (I did not see the transcript so the conclusion comes from AFI.) The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California . AFI: The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify for this scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.
Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama's campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still on-going but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder.
