( 4UMF NEWS ) Obama’s Former Pastor Offered Money To Shut Up:
Rev. Jeremiah Wright — the guy who almost derailed President Obama’s campaign in 2008 — is running his mouth again this time claiming the Obama camp tried to bribe him four years ago with $150k of hush money.
Mr. Wright — President Obama’s former pastor — started a media frenzy when his controversial sermons surfaced and an “outraged” Obama was forced to publicly condemn him. But the reverend claims in went beyond that.
He tells the NY Post, “After the media went ballistic on me, I received an e-mail offering me money not to preach at all until the November presidential election.”
Wright says the email — and subsequent offer of $150k through one of the members of his church — came from “one of Obama’s closest friends.”
According to the pastor, he met with Barack at one point during the election: “And one of the first things Barack said was, ‘I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election.’ He knew I had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, ‘I wish you wouldn’t speak. It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.’”
