CHICAGO - The author of a new book about Barack Obama being released Tuesday, "The Amateur," reveals that Dr. Eric Whitaker was the source of the $150,000 offer to shut up Rev. Jeremiah Wright. And, as Edward Klein told Sean Hannity Monday night, Wright's seething anger towards Obama paved the way for a very revealing audio-recorded interview. From the Daily Caller:
Klein reminded listeners that Whitaker’s hospital is the same one that paid first lady Michelle Obama $316,962 a year to handle community affairs for the University of Chicago Medical Center while her husband served in the U.S. Senate.
In an email, Klein said Whitaker had offered Wright $150,000 “if he would shut-up and not criticize Obama anymore.” When Wright refused Whitaker’s offer, Klein said Obama himself personally met with Wright, which supposedly took place after Obama’s March 18, 2008 “race speech,” confirmed by both Wright’s word and the U.S. Secret Service logs.
