You may remember Larry Sinclair, the limo-riding Obama accuser whose YouTube video got some attention a while back for its claims about the then Illinois lawmaker, as well as his subsequent attempts to prove he was telling the truth (he failed).
The National Press Club is giving him a platform today in Washington, D.C., reports Politico, which today also reports on Sinclair’s mile-long rap sheet:
“Public records and court filings reveal that he has a 27-year criminal record, with a specialty in crimes involving deceit. The record includes forgery charges in two states, one of which drew Sinclair a 16-year jail sentence. The Pueblo County, Colorado, Sheriff’s Office also has an outstanding warrant for Sinclair’s arrest for forging an acquaintance’s signature and stealing her tax refunds. ‘It is what it is,’ said Sinclair’s spokesman, Montgomery Blair Sibley, of his client’s criminal record. ‘He’s not hiding from it, he’s not denying it.'”
As far as the Press Club goes, “Press Club President Sylvia Smith said Sinclair had rented space at the club, which doesn’t censor speakers. ‘I’m not aware that we’ve ever turned anybody away for content,’ she said, adding that Sinclair’s allegations ‘don’t seem very credible.'”
