Obama Uncle Granted Hardship License
Posted by Administrator on April 3, 2012
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles is granting President Barack Obama’s uncle a hardship license after the 67-year-old admitted to sufficient facts in a drunken driving case last week and the charges were dismissed.
The judge in the case suspended Onyango Obama’s driver’s license for 45 days after the Kenyan national admitted that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him. Two other traffic violations were dismissed.
The Boston Herald reported that the restricted license allows Obama to drive from noon until midnight so he can get to his job as a liquor store manager in Framingham.
“He felt it was in his best interest to put this behind him,” said his attorney, P. Scott Bratton. “He wants to return to his normal, quiet existence in society.”
Obama, who is from Kenya, is also appealing a deportation order that dates to 1992, when he failed to renew his application to remain in the U.S. Bratton called it a technical error. He moved here as a teenager in the early 1960s to live with a host family and attend high school.
Bratton said Obama has had no contact with the White House about the drunken driving case.
