Robert Blackwell, Breaking news, EKI Consulting, Obama, Killerspin, state grants, Blackwell response

The Los Angeles Times, in an article dated April 27, 2008 reveals
that Obama received a $8,000 a month retainer from Robert Blackwell
for his technology firm, Electronic Knowledge Interchange. The total fees paid to Obama amounted to $112,000.

Robert Blackwell has submitted a response on this blog. In fairness and in search for the truth, I am posting his response as he submitted it. I will leave it for the reader to judge for themselves. I have confirmed that this is Robert Blackwell of EKI Consulting.
“This story about Barack is really silly.
The story fails to mention that It was a Republican Governor that gave the original grant. Barack had absolutely nothing to do with getting the grant. He was a junior State Senator with very little clout.

I hired Barack because I knew him and he was a very talented young lawyer.

Too bad that this story is such a distortion of the real truth.”

  1. I don’t think someone like say Donald Trump would pay $8000.00 retainer for a YOUNG attorney..that is a high price for a young man coming out of law school! Just my thought!!
