BO Security Clearance

Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

Submitted by ward (United States), Oct 23, 2008 at 13:37

I agree. Having gone through a background check for my job, my clearance was held up until explained why I had two addresses at the same time: (I was living in one place while rennovations were being done on another) Plus, I had a few old business partners who after I split with them had gotten into trouble and I had to appear incourt as a witness. That took 4 weeks to go through the system. This guy is seeking the highest office in the land and his dealings with these shady characters stinks.If you or I were going for even a mid-level GS job with this in our background, we would be rejected.

How come this guy gets a pass?
