Senator Barack Obama: Payoffs to Crony Group

Back in 2007, U.S. Senator Barack Obama tried to advocate for $10 million in taxpayer money to a Chicago nonprofit under investigation for potential fraud. According to emails sent by the nonprofit’s then-director of operations everything was fine, the organization could count on Obama.

On June 10th 2007, Vincent Davis, the former Save-A-Life Foundation (SALF)  sent an email to Eric Brandmeyer, an official at an Illinois hospital trying to implement SALF’s controversial first-aid training programs at a local school district. Brandmeyer was a little skeptical about this since SALF was under investigation at the time.

Davis reassured Brandmeyer, “Naturally, I am aware of the recent press from ABC of Chicago and am concerned about SALF funding. Please give me your thoughts on the future of SALF funding in our area.”

Davis further replied, “All is OK regarding funding, and we are getting (Barack) Obama to help push through our legislation for an additional 10 million which is part of the Homeland Security bill.”

SALF received $9 million in taxpayer money but then dissolved in 2009. SALF is still under investigation amid claims that it did not tell the truth regarding the number of children it provided services to and of “money unaccounted for.”
