Bill Burton, from Obama’s presidential campaign, recently sent out this email, obtained by FishbowlDC:
You may have seen the below op-ed in the Washington Post this morning that incorrectly states that Obama voted for the bankruptcy bill. If you check out the vote and his floor statement at the time, you’ll see that he not only opposed it but also spoke in very forceful terms about the problems he had with it, earning the praise of Senator Ted Kennedy. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to shoot me an email or give me a call.
Obama vote in opposition to the bankruptcy bill.
