Remember The New Party? The semi socialist fringe party that Obama denied ever having anything to do with?
Read this puff piece about Obama's political director, Patrick Gaspard.
About one quarter of the way down, you'll find this item:
"Over the next few years there is remarkable little about Gaspard on the public record, though Lynch says he was heavily involved with the city council and political organizing. An NPR piece from September 1995 described him hosting a meeting for an outfit called The New Party in the basement of his home in Brooklyn. The topic: school board races."
No connection whatsoever!
