Obama and Nepotism

It appears that as a state senator, Barack Obama awarded $75,000 worth of grants to a group headed by one of his wife's cousins.

Obama awarded Illinois grants to relative's group.

All in all, Obama got about $6M for "
everything from literacy programs and park improvements to drill team uniforms and jazz appreciation events."

Barack Obama: ready to spread the pork, not ready to lead. And yes, McCain, you have my permission to use that in an ad.
