More Fun in Obamaconspiracyville: In Which Larry Sinclair Gets Arrested

I blogged a few weeks back about a convicted criminal, Larry Sinclair, who'd been begging the media to cover his wild allegations about Barack Obama. Today Sinclair trotted into the National Press Club to air the allegations before what can literally be described as an audience of international press, and can more accurately be described as an amused bunch of people taking in a circus act.

It had been a difficult morning for Sinclair. The Politico's Ben Smith published a short feature on Sinclair's 27-year criminal record of fraud and petty crimes; Greta Van Susteren linked the story, and told viewers/readers why she has ignored him. "While the internet is a great communication and educational tool, it is also viral when it comes to smearing people," she wrote, prompting commenters to call her a cover-up artist and an agent of Barack Obama. It got worse when Sinclair's lawyer Montgomery Sibley—whose license is currently suspended in D.C. and Florida—showed up in a kilt and told reporters that his above-average endowment made slacks tight and uncomfortable. The Rev. James David Manning, who gained web celebrity in April for a YouTube'd sermon in which he called Obama a "long-legged mack daddy," sat in the crowd of 50 or so with his family. He didn't take questions.

How did Sinclair hold up? Rather terribly. He started with a lengthy statement that admitted most (not all) of his crimes and dispatched Sibley to run around the room with a microphone. As Seth Colter Walls recounts, most of the questions were legalistic and (somewhat) credulous. Sinclair was asked who funded the event (donors, over the internet), how he made his living (he's on disability), and whether Obama was "well hung" (I'm not going to dignify his answer here). The only new "evidence" he presented was the name of a limo driver and the bar where he claimed to have met Obama (who, in Sinclair's story, used his real name and job title as he rendevouzed with a cruising criminal he'd never met before).

I only got to ask one question: What time of day did Sinclair meet with Obama on November 6th and November 7th? In Sinclair's story, Obama partied with him on the 6th and traveled to his hotel in Gurnee, IL (an hour and change from Hyde Park) on the 7th. Sinclair smiled at the question. "We met in the early evening of November 6th," he said. "As far as a specific time on November 7th, I can not provide that to you." He added, parenthetically: "And I know where this question is coming from."

"You know where this question is coming from?"

"Thank you." Sinclair moved on and Sibley refused to let me ask another question. Why didn't I wait until the end of the press conference and rush up to the accuser? The second Sinclair stopped taking questions, he fled the room and reporters were denied access to anyone but Sibley. I was a little disappointed until I heard the reason. Larry Sinclair was arrested after the press conference and is being held by the Washington, D.C. metropolitan police. He's been charged as a fugitive from justice; one of his warrants can be seen here.

UPDATE: More details here.

UPDATE: The always-worthwhile Tim Shipman has his own account, in which I appear as a "journalist" who angers and stumps Sinclair.

Between coughing fits, Mr Sinclair claimed that he has given details of phone calls between him, the limousine driver and Mr Obama to the Chicago police. He was forced to correct one of the mobile numbers he read out, a typing error in the glossy printed statement we were each handed.

Mr Sinclair offered a hotel receipt that appears to show he was in the Chicago area at the time he claims his bizarre liaison occurred. But he was not able to provide any phone records from 1999.

He named the limousine driver as Paramjit Multani and said that the two had been in contact during the early part of the year but that now Mr Multani and his family have disappeared. This is convenient to say the least. The documents he supplied listed a limo driver as Rashpal Multani instead.

I feel deeply for the newspaper reporter who's assigned to dig into this—every indication is that Sinclair wants to send some people on a goose chase to stretch out his 15 minutes of fame. And is anyone surprised to find that Larry Johnson posted Sinclair's rambling statement in full? What is it about Obama and guys named Larry?

    Larry knews what he was doing. That was what Larry wanted - laid himself off as messenger and to be arrested and be asked all quiestions and given a chances to provide details of what really happened. There were more than Obama himself whatever illegal drug or sex, there was a human life taken away. Young was murdered and the silience is unusual. The murder case is still under quiet investigation out there. People, don't assume those polices are fools!

    From Seth Colter Walls report of the press conference:

    The question concerning whether or not Sinclair knows if Obama is well-hung is indeed, evidence, despite your protestations to the contrary.

    Why is Reason.com censoring damning evidence concerning the most statist presidential candidate?

    Is this still a libertarian publication?

  • ||

    If I were backing a candidate with such a bleak outlook that his only chance of winning was to mount a campaign of slander against my opponent and hope it was credible...

    and I saw some loon who was also mounting a campaign of slander against that candidate, for his own purposes...

    and I was afraid that a constant stream of absurdities like that would undermine the credibility of my own slander campaign...

    why, I'd probably try to change the subject whenever people started talking about it.

  • ||

    The Plot Gets Thicker?

    After I got finished laughing at the well-hung lawyer in the kilt, I did some more clicking around, and found out that Larry Sinclair is not the one who paid for the room where the press conference was held.

    It was paid for by "Veritas Federal Media," which appears to be the same as "Veritas Media Group." It has some interesting political ties to the far right wing.

    Its owner is a far right-wing consultant who appears on Fox, CNN, and CNBC, and owns at least one radio station.

    It seems as if someone other than just an oddball ex-con and his weirdo lawyer might have had an interest in spreading this junk.

    Conclusion 1. Most of the major key judgments in the Intelligence Community's October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate (NIE), Iraq's Continuing Programs for Weapons of Mass Destruction, either overstated, or were not supported by, the underlying intelligence reporting....The major key judgments in the NIE, particularly that Iraq "is reconstituting its nuclear program," "has chemical and biological weapons," was developing an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) "probably intended to deliver biological warfare agents," and that "all key aspects - research & development (R&D), production, and weaponization - of Iraq's offensive biological weapons (BW) program are active and that most elements are larger and more advanced than they were before the Gulf War," either overstated, or were not supported by, the underlying intelligence reporting provided to the Committee...The assessment that Iraq "is reconstituting its nuclear program" was not supported by the intelligence provided to the Committee...The statement in the key judgments of the NIE that "Baghdad has chemical and biological weapons" overstated both what was known and what intelligence analysts judged about Iraq's chemical and biological weapons holdings.

    We're all well aware that Obama is just as power-hungry a dirtbag as the next guy. The problem is that this late in the election, the only choices we have are to cast ones vote for one of two pandering, disingenuous malefactors, or to throw ones vote away on a pandering, disingenuous malefactor of a certain third party.

    Or, as I have advocated all along, sit this one out.

  • Naga Sadow||

    Sorry Joe. Just bored at the moment. Didn't mean to lash out like that.

  • MikeB||

    Hugh, I still think it would be better if the LP got a large percentage of the vote. Then more of their platform might be taken seriously and incorporated in to one or both of the majors. An even better outcome might be the eventual collapse of one of the major parties.

    Bob Barr isn't perfect, but I find myself agreeing with 90% of what he claims. My Obama McCain level of agreement is about 15%

    Besides, as Obama and McCain are almost identical, a vote for either would be wasted.

    or do you only investigate the financials of libertarian candidates?

    2. Why won't Senator Obama provide his cellphone numbers and telephone records for all his personal and official cell phones held by Senator Obama or September 2007 - December 23, 2008, the murder of Donald Young?

    3. Why won't Senator Obama provide all email communication both personal and campaign related to and/or from AKP Message & Media from January 18, 2008 through February 29, 2008 for Senator Obama, David Axelrod and David Plouffe?

    4. Why won't Senator Obama provide proof of all payments made from AKP Message & Media, Obama for America, David Axelrod, David Plouffe, and Senator Obama's accounts for the period of January 18, 2008 through February 29, 2008?

If Sinclair answered my question about November 7 - when Obama allegedly spent 3 hours traveling to and from Gurnee for drugs and sex - I would request Obama's schedule from that day to see if it matched.

    I went to the same church as Monty Sibley in Rockville, and he wears a church. We chatted one time while our daughters were trick-or-treating the Rockville city hall and nearby lawyers offices (near the church) and he told me he wears a kilt because of his Scottish heritage.

    He also told me he was suing the Supreme Court.

    I would find the tale of his eccentricity funnier if his client Deborah Jeane Palfrey hadn't committed suicide earlier this year after her case was lost (yes, I think he was her civil lawyer not her criminal defense lawyer, but still...)

  • jtuf||

    A few points:

    1) Criminal charges should be settled in the courts, not over the web.

    2) One person's "speaking truth to power" is another person's "smear". At first glance, it is difficult to tell the difference. That's why I start with skepticism as a general rule.

    3) Obama has a multi-million campaign fund to fight smears with. The local police officer or freeholder does not. Now that we know how smears spread on the internet, maybe readers should evaluate all reports more thoroughly before repeating them with so much certainty.

  • Brian Wood||

    Man, you are feeding into the insanity. This was Larry's BIG moment to bring out the goods. He didn't do it because he didn't have anything. His "I know where that question is coming from" statement he made when asked what time he had met Obama to have sex/drugs.

    Also, take into consideration this: Larry said Obama, when they first met, told Larry his name and occupation (his Youtube and blog stuff). Then Larry says, on this day, Larry's big "I will give the public the proof" day, Larry says he didn't know who Obama was when they met and didn't know who he (Obama) was until he saw Obama make his 2004 speech at the Democratic convention, when Larry was across the border in Mexico. That's a big fat fucking "HUH?"

    This guy is a goof ball. He is looking for a payoff AND he is milking people on the internet for thousands of dollars in the hopes that Larry really might have something. He doesn't have anything. It's a non story. Move on.

    Mitch and Nan went undercover to Larry's event and called the marshals from there. Plus, to have arrested Larry before the news conference would have inflamed the conspiracy theory nut jobs out there. "See? They had him arrested to silence him." Although if you read Larry's blog, you will see that his followers/financiers are claiming Larry had himself arrested because he felt his life was in danger.

    About that first update:

    If the Blogger News Network actually provided "High quality English language" news, they wouldn't have written this: Larry Sinclair-the gay man who's accused Senator Barack Obama of sharing gay sex and drugs with him in a Gurnee, IL hotel room in 1999-held a press conference at the National Press Club today.

    Pointing out that the sex a man shares with another man, who is gay, is "gay sex," is at best mediocre-quality English language.

    Nan and I arranged for Larry's arrest this afternoon.

    You can read the story on our blog.

    Thanks for reporting it.
    ______________________________________________
    What a pile of BS..lol You live in Paris, yet YOU arranged for Larry's arrest. What a huge ego you both must have.
    Federal Marshalls arrested Larry and he is being held for the Pueblo warrant. If he is not picked up by the Colorado Authorities in 24 hours he will be released. Mitch and Nan had absolutely nothing to do with it. Standard procedure here in the USA. There two gasbags are huge liars.

    What all you Obamabots overlook is the fact that Obama could very well be on the Down Low and involved in drug use, but he is your messiah, so you don't care, make fun and discredit LS all you want, but there are real reporters, not maniacal Obama blogers, investigating this as we speak.I was born and raised in Chicago, and Obama is one of the most corrupt Chicago politicians we have ever produced. His fall will come fast and hard.
    Yes, Hillary is in the wings waiting.

  • ||

    Ever have the last sentence give away your entire psychology?

  • ||

    My only psychology is Obama is a fraud.

  • ||

    The US is the funniest reality show on tv.

    What? It's not just a tv show?

    Wow.

    Sad.

  • Fred||

    C'mon, Jordan: save some tin-foil for the rest of us!

  • PC||

    I don't know about the drug allegations, but considering his effeminate disposition, his wife calling him an accessory, and his bowling technique, Obama could very well be in the closet.

  • ||

    You'll need your tin foil to keep your prozac in once you messiah goes down for the liar and fraud he is. His poll numbers are dropping every day, and now with his refusal to take public financing for the GE, his numbers will plummet even further.

  • PC||

    He's also a fabulous dresser.

  • ||

    Larry Sinclair-the gay man who's accused Senator Barack Obama of sharing gay sex and drugs with him in a Gurnee...

    There are gay drugs?

  • ||

    My only psychology is Obama is a fraud.

    Ever have a sentence make no sense...or too much sense?

    You'll need your tin foil to keep your prozac in

    ??????

  • ||

    The republicans here are so funny, so desperate to believe anything negative about Obama, they'll listen to a fraud and pronounce his flailing accusations fact.

    You know, like they did with Chalabi to get us in to this stupid war in the first place.

    Tell us all again how 'curveball' is a trusted source, why don't you.

  • ||

    I have been a democrat for 36 years. I am most of my friends and family will NOT be voting for Obama, no amount of tin foil will ever change that.

    Concernvoter, he is in fear because he was wanted in like three states...you're an idiot...how about the below:

    Just after this Press Conference...
    themitchandnanshow 19 Jun 2008 06:21

    We run an insane blog which exists solely to belittle and toy with Larry Sinclair.

    After carefully coordinated work, we had Larry Sinclair arrested on outstanding warrants just outside of the National Press Club. You may read about it here:

    Loved your article and analysis.

    Thanks Tim!

    Jordan Clinton, I find your ideas interesting, and would like to subscribe to your newsletters.

    Or maybe that's just Obama's poll numbers - which are totally dropping by the day - talking.

    WAKE UP AMERICA!

    I'll repeat my earlier post. Mitch and Nan had nothing to do with Larry's arrest. Greta at gretawire is claiming the same thing..lol

    Barry Obama could have his pick of any gay man's crack he wanted, for free.

    Barack is too handsome, too charming and too shrewd to hook up with the likes of Larry Sinclair whom is just a gross, scuzzy n'er-do-well.

    Anyone who buys Sinclair's whopper is a sucker.

    Good point, Citizen Nothing. Paranoid schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder know no political affiliation!

    Revealing mistake. Get help, OK?

    I still think it would be better if the LP got a large percentage of the vote.

    I'm gonna assume that you and Silbey have the same definition of large.

    From the Telegraph update:

    "I don't know why men wear pants," he said. "It's a function of male genitalia. If you're size normal or smaller, you're probably comfortable. Those at the other end of the spectrum find them quite confining."

    When the great and powerful OZ...err I mean Obama goes down, you people will start committing mass suicide.

  • ||

    Obama and his thugs are doing a good job of covering this all up, I'm talking about the murders too.

    The Chicago judge is stalling the investigation.

    Since Obama is low enough to send his thugs into the caucuses to steal delegates through the use of threats, force, fraud and theft, this is totally believeable.

    If some of these kiss-ass reporters got off their asses Obama would be charged with murder.

    I guess we will have to wait for the GOP to hang him.

  • ||

    Art troll sad sad sad up down people.

    Banana want.

    Dave S. Finally an intelligent and articulate poster. I agree with you, the GOP will not hesitate to investigate and hang Obama before the GE voting.

    If this creep ever had a shred of credibility, it's down the toilet now. Don't expect to ever see this guy again.

  • ||

    Just because Obama isn't doing chestbumps or flexing for the camera doesn't mean he's effeminate. For the Hillary supporters out there, don't you feel just a teeny weeny bit embarrassed about the way she's handled herself? I was originally a Hillary supporter myself until I realized that the only thing she's interested in is furthering her career. She's ambitious to the point of insanity.
    For the republicans out there, wtf? You're supporting McCain?

    Larry Sinclair has thus far failed to produce a single viable piece of evidence. Is it any wonder nobody in the mainstream media wants to risk their career and credibility covering this farce?

    I've been trying to get Mr. Sinclair to response to questions on his blog (simple ones, like "If you think Obama's phone records would prove you right, why don't you provide your phone records, they should work just as well, right?" ), but the blog is so heavily moderated that not one single real question can get through, and apparently even his own worshipers are now having a hard time posting due to overaggressive comment deletion.

    I know several people who've tried to ask questions of Mr. Sinclair, but that is apparently not allowed on his blog, despite the fact that his blog clearly states "You may comment on any post, regardless of your position. However, please note that any and all abusive, threatening and vulgar comments and emails will result in your user name, email address and IP address being posted regardless and without the posters permission. You have been warned." .

    Small wonder, huh? The guy who wants to force Obama to answer his questions will not answer anyone else's :)

    I personally would love it if someone in the media just exposed this guy for the fraud he is. I'd watch that episode for certain, and I'm sure the advertisers would be well pleased by the number of viewers ;)
