More Bad News… Hillary Faces Cattle Fine in Kenya
Kenyan elders are looking for justice after the Hillary Campaign started circulating the “Muslim Obama” picture earlier this week.
It looks like her little tricks are going to cost her.
…Cattle, camels or goats.
She really didn’t need this right now, did she?
Kenyan elders are going to fine Senator Clinton for her shameful photo fear-mongering this week of Barack Obama.
The elders reached the agreement today at Friday prayers.
Kenyan elders may impose a fine on U.S. presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, payable in livestock, after a photo of her rival Barack Obama in robes dragged their people into the race for the White House.
The picture, which appeared on a U.S. Web site, showed the Illinois senator in a white headdress and traditional Somali attire during a 2006 visit to Wajir in Kenya’s remote northeast.
Obama has battled a whispering campaign by fringe elements who wrongly say he is Muslim and his aides accused Clinton’s campaign of “the most shameful, offensive fear-mongering” after the photograph was published.
Wajir elders resolved to file an official complaint with the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, dropping earlier plans to hold a protest after Friday prayers.
They said they would also convene a traditional Somali court to investigate the matter. It can impose fines that are payable in cattle, goats or camels.
Obama is very popular in Kenya where his grandmother still lives.
