David Lowery says he believes he was threatened during a phoneconversation with Louis Raymond, the Illinois political director for Obama for America.
Lowery says he doesn’t personally support the president because he’s not addressing issues important to the black community. He said he was explaining that to Raymond when the Obama campaign official told him, “You know what? I know everything about you.”
