That Magic Touch: Man Who Introduced Obama At Rally Owes $500G To Former Employer

Barack Obama

Well, nobody’s ever vetted Obama, so why would they bother vetting who’s introducing him at rallies?

An Ohio man who says he once lost his job and introduced President Barack Obama at a rally on Friday had been accused of stealing trade secrets by a former boss.

Court records show that Daniel Potkanowicz and a business partner in the Youngstown area were ordered to pay $500,000 to Clearview Window & Door after a judge ruled in 2009 that they had violated trade secrets.

The Vindicator newspaper in Youngstown reports that the two partners have not paid back the money.

Potkanowicz told the newspaper that he didn’t want to talk about his past.

“That’s part of my life I really don’t want to go into,” Potkanowicz told The Vindicator. “I’m not really talking about that.”

Or as Democrats like to say, it’s old news. Hey, look at the upside, at least he didn’t drop dead after meeting Obama.

Richard Albright, owner of Clearview, couldn’t believe Potkanowicz would be allowed to introduce the president.

“I’m wondering who put him up there,” Albright told The Vindicator. “He was involved in a scandal, and he’s introducing the president.”

H/T Ben.

    So the dear leader is being introduced by a white collar criminal? Is he auditioning people for cabinet replacements?

    Hey, this obama supporter is a piker in terms of theivery, he only stole 500k. Those green energy guys, with Obamas help, stole a lot more than that. Funny how Obama seems to attract a lot of support from theives.
