Minnesota Man Claims He Took Drugs & Had Sex with Barack Obama in 1999

Barack Obama now faces a new challenge - one that is sure to be much more scandalous than anything he's seen so far. If the allegations are to be believed, it's also a scandal that his campaign has tried to cover up. A Minnesota man has come forth, claiming that he took cocaine in 1999 with Obama, the then-Illinois legislator, and participated in homosexual acts with him.

Larry Sinclair, the man making the claims, said his story was ignored by the news media. Still not willing to let this one slip quietly under the rug, Sinclair made a YouTube video in which he made his case. It's had over half a million views already, but the story has still been largely ignored by the news media.

Sinclair's next step was to file a suit in Minnesota District Court, in which he alleges threats and intimidation by the Democratic presidential candidate's staff.

Still out to prove that he is telling the truth, Sinclair said he is willing to submit to a polygraph test. A website (WhiteHouse.com) has come forth offering him $10,000 for the right to record the polygraph test, and another $100,000 if he passes it.

Sinclair lives in Duluth, Minnesota, and in his filing, charges that his civil rights have been violated by Barack Obama and the Democratic Party. Obama, David Axelrod of AKP Message & Media in Chicago, and the Democratic National Committee have been named as defendants in the case.

Sinclair, who describes himself as gay, claims they met in an upscale Chicago lounge. They left in Sinclair's limo, where the drug use and sex allegedly took place for the first time. Sinclair says that Obama smoked crack cocaine, and that he snorted powder cocaine provided by Obama.

Sinclair, 46, says that he no longer uses drugs. He claims to be physically disabled, but says that he was not physically impaired in 1999 when they met.

Regarding the claims, Sinclair said:

"My motivation for making this public is my desire for a presidential candidate to be honest. I didn't want the sex thing to come out. But I think it is important for the candidate to be honest about his drug use as late as 1999."

There are several other videos he made in response to the first video, and other's inquiries. Check those out here.

It is dispiriting and shameful for a reputable news organization like Cleveland Leader to publish trash from a nutcase seeking attention. This has been on the Internet for about a month. But no respectable journalist in America will stoop so low to ask Obama about this idiocy. It doesn't deserve a response.

Wait a minute! Hillary Clinton is a lesbian and she's been having an affair with her aide; John Edwards had been cheating on Elizabeth during the campaign and is the father of Riele Hunter's unborn child. Right? Rubbish!

This is the kind of story you expect to read from gossip magazines like The Enquirer and that's the level Cleveland Leader has reduced itself to. Those who authorized the publication of this story should be asked to find a new job. Idiots!

I agree SHAME! to the Cleveland Leader

Come on guys, Barack has better taste then that, have you taken a look at that guy!!!!! Give us all a break . Oops!Is this the National Enquirer??????

the same was said about Larry Craig. the truth has a right to come out.

the difference being Larry Craig was arrested by a police officer conducting a sting operation. not being accused by a mental case living in some trailer park. Its not the medias job to report every single baseless accusation...thats the National Enquirer's job.

The fact here is, this man Larry Sinclair is sueing Barrack Obama, David Axelrod and the DNC. That's NEWS! By the mainstream media networks not reporting the lawsuit is in dead trying to with hold the facts from the American Veiwers. It's giving Barrack Obama special treatment!

Hillary Clinton is supposed to appear in court tomorrow in Los Angeles to get a trial date because she and Bill took illegal campaign money from Peter Paul back in the 90's. The media isn't talking about that either so don't act like Obama is being treated with special care.

That is bull! That was the first thing I saw this morning on the news. Just wait to Barrack Obama has to appear in Fed Court over the Tony Rezko ordeal of frauding the goverment of millions. With the back door help from Obama and the Il governor. Stay tune for that case!

Wow.

No wonder the right wing has fallen apart.

I can't believe the talking points I'm hearing nowadays. Obama bought a house from him before all this came out, bought a 10 foot strip off Rezko's property, and did five billable hours of mundane clerking as a junior partner at a law firm.

If Barack is guilty of anything, it's working for a law firm and buying a house at fair market value.

That's because Barack Hussain Homobama and the Hildebeast are both Donkey. The MSM would slander a Republican at the drop of a hat, ask Dan Rather.

Or ask Don Imus! It's ok to be a sexist but not a racist!

All the conservative talkshow hosts in my area call him "Barack Hussein Obama" because when they first found out what his middle name was they figured it would hurt him with the general Saddam-hating public. Their small-minded listeners can't help repeating their every word, and call him "Hussein" almost reflexively now. Love it. ("Homobama" is a new one to me though. Did you come up with that yourself?)

Hey Moron! Did you watch the Oscars? There are as many Democrats using his middle name.

OCT. 17,2007-CALIFORNIA APPEALS COURT DISMISSES HILLARY CLINTON FROM FRAUD CASE BROUGHT BY PAUL. AND, THE MEDIA HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS CASE BUT IT DOES NOT INVOLVE HILLARY CLINTON!

The case does not involve that corrupt sack of stink Hillary?

She knew everything about the false contribution reports to the FEC involving her campaign. She will deposed as a witness and she already filed a false deposition that will open her up to perjury charges.

I HAVE LIVED IN WASHINGTON FOR A LONG TIME! I HAVE WORKED IN GOVERMENT FOR A LONG TIME, THERE IS NO PUBLIC CANDIDATE THAT TOTALLY CLEAN WITH IT COMES TO DONATION TO GET ELECTED. ELECTIONS ARE EXPENSIVE TO MANAGE AS YOU HAVE SEEN IN THIS ELECTION CYCLE. GET OVER IT... ALL THE CANDIDATE WILL HAVE AN ISSUE AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER. THERE IS NO SURE WAY OF KNOWING 100% WHERE ALL THE FUNDS ARE COMING FROM!

YOU JUDGEMENT PEOPLE HAVE NO CLUE! BUT YOU ARE SURELY NOT WITHOUT AN OPINION TO TALK ABOUT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO TALK ABOUT!

Learn how to form proper sentences. You are embarrassing your commie friends with your ignorance.

So Obama is a drug smoking, gay, terrorist commie? That is hardly news.

"Commie" ???? That is so 50's. You are apparently not up on your current GOP scare tactics. You should have said, "You are embarrassing your terrorist friends with your ignorance."

And if either of those events was happening to a Republican, what would be the response? Bush with his alleged drug use was a HUGE issue in the last election. There is compelling evidence that Obama once SOLD drugs. I wouldn't vote for either Republicrat or Demican, but at least provide a level playing field.

Interesting court date

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbbS4WukFSM&NR=1

who is this guy to say that?? its one persons word against another. sounds little to me you have a axe to grind.

Larry did not lie.He told the truth.I have seen the report from the last Doctor.He sayed Larry did not lie.

What are you worried about, Barack Fans? If this guy fails his polygraph, then he's a liar. If he passes, well, frankly, I'd want to know. I don't think it means Barack is a bad guy or anything, just because he did gay sex and smoked crack, but if he's not telling the truth about drug use as a legislator, then how do we know he's not impaired NOW? Would you want a drug impaired president? Just think about it!

So engage in the political process - and bring a critical eye to everything the candidates, the pundits, study the agendas of the candidate closely. Think about your family, your future, your financial
situation. Invest at least as much in choosing your candidates as you would buying a new TV. Vote with your minds and not your hearts!

And vote as if your life depends on it – because it does!!! Because experience matter in an election!

We have a drug impaired president now.

You can read Larry's test at www.reverspeech.com/sinclairrele.htm whitehouse has done Larry wrong. All he is trying to do is let the vote's know the truth of the man trying to be our President.This site also has much more inf.www.rense.com, www.sodahead.com Sen.Ted Kennedy on video talking about obama but call's him Ben LADEN ...funny..He say's what he truly believe's .Go Hillary we need you to save the United States.

I think the news media Cnn,MSNBC,Abc etc has put the crown on Obamas head and the people are drinking the coolaid.Just like Jim Jones.When Hillary is knocked out this stuff is going to hit the fan and the Republicans will win again!!!!

Barack is not an islamic plant, he is a republican plant. What a stroke of genius to supply a candidate that Hillary could not say anything negative about. The republicans will win because the Democrats are so stupid that they actually bought it!

Barrack has better taste than that...?
The guy claims he used drugs as a kid...
all this guy is doing is saying COME CLEAN....
but everyones a believer in his HOPE message..
and CHANGE......
well I HOPE its TRUE.... and its time to CHANGE
support to someone else than a guy who is phoney
as the day is long... but because he;s BLACK
no one wants to push any buttons.. and dig deeper
into this guy...
Wait til the REZKO story comes out..
he's gotten a pass on that one tooo...

Good job.... Cleveland Leader......

Yes he will get a pass on the Resko scandal.. Oprah Winfrey controls the media in Chicago. Oprah will see to it that Obama is elected at all cost! It's interesting to note, how Obama has become the big media hit like Oprah. I wonder if they have the same media agent?

Oprah Winfrey "controls the media in Chicago"?

What are you, some UFO Conspiracy Theorist lunatic?

I do not know who left that message, but I can tell you Oprah Winfrey has alot of control over the media here in chicago. her words are power, like it or not. I use to work for her harpo.

I attended the Hawaii caucus last night at
Jefferson School. I wittnessed in horror as Obama segregates started caucusing. Food and water was handed out, but only to Obama supporters. If you were voting for Clinton the food was taken
away from you. An Obama supporter took the food out of my hand, after I had taken a bite!! And the bottle of water from the man standing next to me. A woman repersenitive stated, "Obama paid for the food, his orders where only the people supporting him will get feed." She continued to try and bribe me! I am outraged!! I spoke to my cousin today, who leave in Iowa. She said, she was a distrubing inccident with a Obama support too, so upsetting she left before casting a vote. At the Jefferson School, they were allowing Obama supports ONLY to vote well past closing time. If this is an example of our next president's leadership? Then we are in trouble.... I am still upset from how I was treated and wittnessed.

and learn how to spell correctly.

I am glad that other individuals realize how rude, divisive and unethical some Obama supporters have been during the campaign. Late last year, I received a phone call from a man stating he was with the Obama campaign. He stated I had committed to donate $100 to the campaign and demanded to know why it had not been paid. I informed him I never spoke to anyone with the campaign, and never committed to donate $100. He then asked if I wanted to make a donation.

When I mentioned this phone call to an Obama supporter, I was called a liar. My husband was present when I received the phone call. As someone who was a potential Obama supporter, this behavior completed soured me toward Obama. Reading the blogs, the Obama supporters make rude personal comments when people ask questions that need direct answers. If these supporters reflect Obama, he is no uniter.

I had a similar phone call. My alleged contribution was $1250.00.

Perhaps in a former life whilst under the influence of pychotropic drugs; but not in this one.

Wow - same thing happened to me. I didn't even think it was a legitimate call, just some phone scam. Now that I'm seeing others that have experienced this over the past few months, I don't know if I'm comfortable throwing support behind BHO. Unfortunately, there's no quality candidate, so I guess I will write in for Ron Paul or Ralph Nader.

Our government needs a swift kick in the .....

You really think this was from the Obama campaign? What's your number? I'll help you get your tax refund faster. Or, I'm from your bank, can you give me your DOB, SSN, and PIN for verification?

The schemes are endless.

I have heard whispers of illegal conduct by the Obama campaign at the caucuses. If you have specific information, or were specifically targeted, please contact the media and the Clinton campaign with this information. Regardless of who you are supporting to be the Democratic nominee, voter intimidation should not be tolerated.

GO TO OBAMA'S WEBSITE AND FILE A COMPLAINT. HE HAS A SITE TO CONTACT ABOUT VOTER FRAUD, INTIMIDATION...ETC.

HE IS BIG ON THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GO HILLARY 08!!!!!!!!! OR McCAIN 08!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At a caucus site in Minneapolis, one had to fight the way in pass Obama supporters. The voters were just given plain pieces of paper to write their votes on, and no one was really playing attention to how many times anyone went in line to vote. It was depressing and very sad and very frightening.

What Obama's Senate votes reveal
The list of 'yeas' and 'nays' offer some clues to an Obama presidency

By Tom Curry
National affairs writer
MSNBC

WASHINGTON - In Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign stump speeches, he rarely mentions any of the more than 1,100 votes that he's cast as a member of the United States Senate.

Votes on legislation have the virtue of being concrete and precise, showing a pattern of belief and conviction.

On most votes, Obama and his rival for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton, have lined up on the same side.

Obama has promised that as president that he would find a way to “stop fighting with Republicans and bring them over to our side.” He made that very pledge in Houston on Tuesday night.

“If we could just come together across the boundaries” of political party, race, and other categories, he said the very next day, “there’s no problem we could not solve.”

But those “boundaries” are defined by votes on specific issues: immigration, Iraq, taxes, judicial nominees, and Medicare.

A solid party loyalist
Obama’s roll call votes in 2005, 2006 and 2007 have been analyzed by the non-partisan journal Congressional Quarterly which found him to be a Democratic Party loyalist.

CQ didn't use every single roll call vote to make this determination, instead it analyzed votes where a majority of Democratic senators opposed a majority of Republican senators.

In 2007, Obama voted with his fellow Democrats 97 percent of the time. In 2006, his score was 96, and in 2005, he again netted a 97 percent rating.

Let’s explore some of the votes that resulted in those ratings, and others that Obama has cast.

The cliché heard during battles over Supreme Court nominees is that there is no other vote, excluding the decision to go to war, that has more profound consequences for a politician.

There’s truth to this cliché.

Chief Justice John Roberts, 53, and Justice Samuel Alito, 57, both of whom Obama voted against, are likely to serve for another 25 years and Obama only for eight, if he’s elected president.

But if elected, Obama may have the opportunity to appoint nominees to replace Justice John Paul Stevens, who will turn 89 this April, and probably other justices as well.

'No' on Roberts and Alito
Obama said in opposing Roberts, “far more often used his formidable skills on behalf of the strong in opposition to the weak.”

Later, Obama criticized Roberts claim that he acted as an "umpire."

"But the issues that come before the court are not sports; they’re life and death," Obama argued. "We need somebody who’s got the empathy to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom."

In the Roberts vote, Obama found himself at odds with 22 Democrats who voted for the chief justice.

Senators Russ Feingold and Herb Kohl of Wisconsin, Robert Byrd and Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, Max Baucus of Montana, Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico, Bill Nelson of Florida, and Ken Salazar of Colorado were among the Democrats casting their votes for Roberts.

The sole exception from a Midwestern battleground state was Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa, who voted to oppose Roberts. No Republican joined Obama in voting against Roberts.

In the battle over Alito, some Democrats, including Sen. John Kerry, D- Mass., half-heartedly tried to stall a vote on the nomination.

Ten in a row for Obama

Nightly News

It was clear that Alito’s supporters would win the procedural vote — called a “motion to invoke cloture” in Senate language — and thus would prevent the delay on Alito’s confirmation.

Obama voted “no” anyway, joining 24 other Democrats. No Republicans voted with them. Most of the Democrats from battleground states voted for the motion.

For a filibuster
“He not only voted against Alito, but for a filibuster,” said Nan Aron, of the Alliance for Justice, an advocacy group that led the effort to defeat several Bush judicial nominees.

Although illegal immigration may have momentarily subsided as an issue in the national media spotlight, the problem is no closer to being resolved than it was in 2005 when Obama entered the Senate.

Obama voted against one measure in 2006 that would have denied citizenship or other legal status to illegal immigrants.

And he voted against another last year that would have allowed police to question individuals about their immigration status if the officers had probable cause to believe that the person was not lawfully present in the United States.

Obama joined all but four other Senate Democrats in voting for the 2006 Senate immigration bill sponsored by Sen. John McCain, R- Ariz., the likely GOP presidential nominee, and Sen. Edward Kennedy, D- Mass.

The McCain-Kennedy bill would have created a guest worker program, and would also have allowed illegal immigrants in the United States since 2001 to become legal residents.

How to treat illegal immigrants
Last October, Obama, along with 37 Democrats, 12 Republicans and independents Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, voted to move to a final vote on the “Dream” Act (the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act), which would allow illegal immigrants under age 30 to remain in the United States and gain legal status if they attend college or join the military.

The motion fell eight votes short of the 60 it needed for passage.

The bill would also have allowed illegal immigrants, if they passed background checks and became permanent legal residents, to qualify for lower in-state tuition rates at state colleges and universities.

“We should not punish undocumented children who were brought to this country illegally through no choice of their own by keeping them in the shadows,” he said, criticizing what he called “the politics of division and fear.”

By voting ‘yes,’ Obama put himself at odds with Democrats from states such as Montana, Missouri, Arkansas, and West Virginia, all of which could be pivotal states in the 2008 election.

Sen. Max Baucus of Montana — who is up for re-election this year and voted against the bill — said people in Montana were “very upset" by the bill. "They’re outraged; it’s like amnesty, it’s virtually the same.”

Vote in support of abortion rights
On another contentious social issue, Obama’s voting record on abortion legislation gives every indication that as president he would support the Supreme Court’s decisions that have made the procedure legal in most cases.

Last August he voted against a proposal to codify a Bush administration policy that gives states the option of providing medical insurance to unborn children under the State Children's Health Insurance program.

He also voted “no” on a 2006 bill to prohibit the transportation of a minor girl across state lines to obtain an abortion, even if this would circumvent parental consent or notification laws in her home state.

On this vote Obama found common ground with four Republicans: Sens. Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine, Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, and Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island. (Chafee, who was defeated for re-election by Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse in 2006, recently endorsed Obama.)

Obama also agrees with Specter that the alleged terrorists being held by the U.S. government at Guantanamo Bay ought to be given habeas corpus rights to challenge their detention.

Congress passed a law in 2006 to deny them such rights; that law is currently the subject of a case before the Supreme Court, which is expected to rule by this summer.

Specter’s amendment to given habeas corpus rights to detainees fell four votes short last year.

On tax policy, Obama voted in 2006 against a bill that extends, through 2010, the cuts in capital gains and dividends tax rates enacted by Congress in 2003.

He complained that the bill would “give the wealthiest one-tenth of one percent of all Americans a tax cut that is more than four thousand times larger than most middle-class Americans will get.”

He also voted “no” in 2006 on repeal of the tax on inherited wealth, the estate tax, which is scheduled to rise to 55 percent in 2011
The other side of the fiscal coin is spending. Outlays on rapidly growing entitlement programs, such as Medicare, now account for 44 percent of all federal outlays.

Obama voted against a measure by Sen. John Ensign R-Nev., to require Medicare beneficiaries with annual incomes over $160,000 to pay higher premiums for their prescription drugs in Medicare Part D.

If Obama is elected, Iraq and the future of the nation's military forces there will dominate his presidency.

In June of 2006 Obama voted against a measure offered by Feingold and Kerry that would have required President Bush to withdraw most United States troops from Iraq by July 1, 2007.

Most Democrats joined him in voting “no” as only 13 Democrats (and no Republicans) voted 13 for it.

But in September 20, 2007, Obama was one of 28 Democrats voting for a Feingold measure that ordered Bush to begin withdrawing most U.S. forces from Iraq within 90 days.

'Yes' on Iraq funding cutoff
The bill would have cut off funding for the Iraq deployment by June 30, 2008. Feingold’s measure would have allowed U.S. troops to stay in Iraq to “conduct targeted operations, limited in duration and scope, against members of al Qaeda” and other terrorist groups.

No Republican senators voted for the Feingold measure, while 18 Democrats, several of them from battleground states such as Missouri (Sen. Claire McCaskill), Virginia (Sen. Jim Webb), Florida (Sen. Bill Nelson) and Colorado (Salazar) voted against it.

Just two hours before that vote, Obama missed another Senate vote, this one to denounce a full-page New York Times ad run by the anti-war group Moveon.org mocking the U.S. commander in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus as “General Betray Us.”

In that legislation, the Senate voted to “condemn any effort to attack the honor and integrity of General Petraeus” and “to specifically repudiate the unwarranted personal attack on General Petraeus by the liberal activist group Moveon.org.”

The measure passed 72 to 25, with 22 Democrats voting for it and 25 Democrats opposing it.

And, again the battleground state Democrats such as McCaskill, Webb, and Salazar voted for the measure.

TOO BAD THE PEOPLE VOTING FOR OBAMA DON'T CARE. THEY JUST WANT TO BE PART OF THE HYPE FOR OBAMA! IDIOTS!

I DO NOT KNOW IF THIS STORY IS TRUE OR NOT. BUT THE MEDIA OWNS IT TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC TO FIND OUT. I WILL SAY I HAVE BEEN A DEMOCRAT ALL MY LIFE. I AM TIRED OF THE RACE BETWEEN TO THESE TWO EQUAL PEOPLE. I AM CALLING FOR ALL DEMOCRAT TO CONTACT THE DNC AND HAVE SEN. CLINTON AND SEN. OBAMA ON THE SAME DEMOCRAT TICKET. THIS NON SENSE HAS TO STOP. AS A DEMOCRAT THERE IS NO MORE POWERFUL TICKET THAN BOTH OF THEM TOGETHER. CALL IT THE CHANGE TO EXPERIENCE TICKET! IT WOULD BE THE GREAT SUCCESS STORY IN AMERICAN POLITICS TO DATE. THIS WOULD BE A MOMENTUM TEAM THAT WOULD KEEP THE WHITE HOUSE UNDER DEMOCRAT CONTROL FOR 16 YEARS. HOWARD DEAN HELP!

HILLARY AND BARRACK 2008! PLEASE JOIN ME - TOGETHER WE CAN!

I have been saying this for months now, the race is to close to close. The democratic elder and super delegates shoudl get both the candidates together and make them run on the same ticket.

People please spread the word. Clinton/Obama 2008!

I love the tag like you created, thats great!

"Experience change in 2008!"

For those of us who are Hillary Clinton Supports... Please what this!

Sure there is a more powerful choice for the democrats.
AL GORE could kick both their asses
Did they ever miss the boat on this one!

What an odd thing to write, in the second sentence of that article: "Votes on legislation have the virtue of being concrete and precise, showing a pattern of belief and conviction." I can't believe anyone following -- let alone professionally covering -- politics would write that high-minded sentence. Voting is often about compromise, about horse-trading, about safe votes when legislation would have passed or failed without you. You simply cannot say that a candidate makes every vote blindly and that their voting record is exactly representative of their convictions and beliefs.

How would the Obama supporters feel if they realize they have been duped?
