Obama Surrenders Law License in 2008 to Escape Charges He Lied on Bar Application

Obama Surrenders Law License in 2008 to Escape Charges He Lied on Bar Application

Forwarded to us via E-Mail:

President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a "lawyer". He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

I knew they had both lost their law license, but I didn't know why until I read this.

This is legit. I check it out at https://www.iardc.org Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It's the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois; and they are very strict and mean as hell. (Talk about irony.) Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain (at the cost of approximately $600/year) my law license that I worked so hard and long to earn.

Big surprise.

Not true

I'm all for exposing Obama, but this isn't factual.

Please see here for a fully sourced and non-biased review of the documents: http://factcheck.org/2012/06/the-obamas-law-licenses/

So.......where's the proof?

The link to the IARDC website doesn't state anything except the fact that Obama voluntarily "retired" his license. It doesn't give a reason and it doesn't look like you can get that information from that site anyway. Who said he voluntarily gave it up to avoid charges he lied on his Bar application?

We're supposed to believe this is the reason because a blog named "Charleston Voice" says so?

Whomever started this thread must believe he is dealing with some gullible people who can't tell fact from rumor.


Yet it does not change a thing to me, as I already did not like the man.

No such thing as a LAW license

He may have been kicked out of the BAR, a private attorney's union.

B. The practice of Law is AN OCCUPATION OF COMMON RIGHT!

I don't care

that he lost his Law License, his whole political career has been a book of lies. This is just one sad event in the life of a man who has ruined a country and had a negative impact on millions of people around the world. RP supporters have the knowledge to infiltrate the political machine this time around and we are winning the small battles that result in leadership change so we can make a real difference. It is the people in the DP and other RP supporters that will stand up and take our once great country back.
