Parking Fines Paid by Obama

Yes, this is the next story to come out about Barack Obama's past.

In January he had outstanding parking fines, dating back to between 1988 and 1991. 15 in all, for such major indiscretions of parking in a bus stop, parking without a resident permit and failing to pay the meter.

The fines which totalled $375, which included the initial fines, and associated late fees, were finally paid by Obama, 2 weeks before he announced his exploratory committee in January.

A spokesperson for Barack Obama said today that "Many people have parking tickets and late fees. All the parking tickets and late fees were paid in full."

It's not the biggest scandal is it? So it's quite possible Fox will lead with it.
