America’s Leading Black Rabbi

Politico reports:

It seems a bit unfair to post this one on a Saturday, but McCain is up with a new radio spot, a version of his television ad linking Obama to various Chicago characters.

This one says Obama procured “$75,000 for his relative.”

“That’s your money Obama’s using. That’s unethical. Helping his friends with your tax dollars,” continues the narrator.

The line is a reference to the report that Obama, as a state senator, sent $75,000 in grants for adult literacy, counseling and youth programs at a nonprofit run by his wife’s first-cousin once removed, Caspars Funnye.

Funnye is much better known as America’s most prominent black rabbi, as the Forward reported.
