Were the Obama’s (as lawyers) Disbarred for corruption?

Received via email and needs further investigation. Passing along so fellow researchers can vet it.

It appears that the answer is NO. That is because neither Barack nor Michelle ever had a license. This despite the fact that they both seemed to be practicing law in some capacity.

Here is the email that has been going around -

 

Consider this:

1. 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. A “Voluntary Surrender” is not something where you decide “Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?” and forget to renew your license. No, a “Voluntary Surrender” is something you do when you’ve been accused of something, and you ‘voluntarily surrender” your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

2 Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993. After a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her license or standing trial for Insurance fraud!

3. So, we have the President and First Lady – who don’t actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.

4. A senior lecturer is one thing, a fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law Professor at the University of Chicago.

5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama(D-Ill.) “served as a professor” in the law school-but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

6. “He did not hold the title of Professor of Law,” said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the

University of Chicago School of Law.

The former Constitutional Senior Lecturer (Obama) cited the U.S. Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence … Not the Constitution.8. The B-Cast posted the video:

9. Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: “We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal.

10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there Champ, I mean Mr. President. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them

unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Courtmoments later in the same speech?

When you are a phony it’s hard to keep facts straight.

    There is another idea that this is true but what do you think about this info on it here: factcheck.org/2012/06/the-obamas-law-licenses/

    Do your homework. Don’t rely on e-mail spam.
    Quote from UC Law School: “From 1992 until his election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, Barack Obama served as a professor in the Law School. He was a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004, during which time he taught three courses per year. Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are regarded as professors, although not full-time or tenure-track.”

      Funny your comment does not address the 2008 quote that this article references. You try to discredit this by citing an older quote that the 2008 quote was obviously intended to correct.

    • False Hope says:

      So in other words you’ve told us nothing!!! He wasn’t even a professor, he was a lecturer.

  3. Me says:

    Isn’t it funny how the University had to then detract their original comment and issue a new comment equating him to a professor in a round-a-bout way? Some of you people will keep drinking the kool-aid no matter what.

    Round and round we go. Just a lot of double talk and still he was reelected by the 51% fools and now we all will suffer for years. This is the beginning of Fundamental Transformation the Progressives had wanted since Prez Wilson and FDR.
