    Obama Earmarks Benefited Donors and Relatives, Group Says

    Tuesday, October 07, 2008
    By Fred Lucas, Staff Writer

    As an Illinois state legislator, Sen. Barack Obama secured at least $300,000 to fund projects that benefited friends, relatives and contributors, according to a conservative government watchdog group.
    Those projects included a botanical garden that was never built, a church with a controversial pastor and an organization headed by Michelle Obama’s cousin.

    Judicial Watch, using the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, says it obtained information on earmarks doled out by Obama when he represented his Chicago district in the state Senate.

    The group would be Judicial Watch, as pointed out in the last paragraph.
