Oh Brother! Barack H. Obama Foundation – Obama’s half-brother runs questionable charity

Oh Brother is right.  What is it with Democrat Presidential brothers.  lets see there was Ted Kennedy, Billy Carter, Roger Clinton Jr. and now it is Barack Obama’s Half Brother  Abon’go Malik “Roy” Obama

President Obama’s half-brother runs an off-the-books American charity that claims to support poor Kenyans — but it lies about its federal status and no one knows how it spends its money.

The group, the Barack H. Obama Foundation, was named after the president’s father and founded by his sibling Abon’go Malik “Roy” Obama, a 53-year-old polygamist who recently made headlines by adding a third wife — who’s still in her teens.

Its Web site claims to have provided drinking water in Kenya’s Siaya District, which includes the Obama clan’s ancestral village. The organization also says it has completed a madrassa, or Muslim school, and is building an imam’s residence. A photo of the tidy little school building is displayed on the site.

That and other photos on the site are the only purported evidence that the nonprofit has accomplished any of its mission.

A group of Missouri State college students who visited the Obama family village of Kogelo in 2009, and who met the president’s half-brother, felt something was amiss. They sensed he was an “operator” and decided to give their donation of 400 pounds of medical supplies directly to a local clinic.

“We didn’t know what he was going to do with them,” said Ken Rutherford, a former Missouri State professor who led the trip and who shared in the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize for his work to ban landmines.

The foundation never filed for tax-exempt status in the United States and didn’t have permission to be collecting donations in Virginia.

While a formal IRS investigation hasn’t yet begun, the NLPC has released a list of six questions they say need to be answered.
