The Minnesota man who claims to have had sex with and taken cocaine with Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama voluntarily participated in a series of polygraph tests over the weekend. Whitehouse.com initially offered Larry Sinclair $10,000 to take a polygraph test, and $100,000 if he passed it and was shown to be telling the truth.
Whitehouse.com acquired the services of two expert polygraph examiners, who have examined Mr. Sinclair. The results of the first polygraph examination by Dr. Ed Gelb (Former President of the American Polygraph Association) indicate "deception" in regards to both the drug and sex claims by Sinclair.
The second expert's conclusions have not yet been revealed, but should be early this week. These will either confirm or deny the first examiner's results. Whitehouse.com has additionally promised to post video recordings of the examinations for complete disclosure and transparency.
With regards to the $10,000 payout that Larry Sinclair had agreed to for taking the polygraph test, it has been modified upon Sinclair's request and Whitehouse.com's approval. Prior to taking the test, Sinclair asked for a reduced payout to cover some of his mother's debt, and requested $10,000 to be paid directly to a few Minnesota charities. The lucky charities are: the Duluth Salvation Army Housing Loan Program and the Girls and Boys Club of Duluth.
The first polygraph test is said to have taken approximately four hours. Prior to administering the tests, to be sure there would not be any potential interferences, Sinclair was subjected to a drug test. Sinclair passed the drug test, and was cleared to take the polygraph test.
