Turban Obama

"A shameful and offensive fear-mongering" is the statement that the official Barak Obama camp proclaimed yesterday on the distribution of a photo of Presidential candidate Barak Obama dressed like a Somali elder in a turban. The photo, taken in 2006 during a visit to Kenya, is speculated to have been released by Hillary Clinton supporters and according to Obama's campaign manager David Plouffe "This is part of a disturbing pattern", alluding to a previous controversy in which a couple of Mrs Clinton's volunteers had been dismissed for forwarding an e-mail falsely stating that Mr Obama is a Muslim. The Clinton camp quickly denied knowing of the photo's existance by saying that it is a “transparent attempt to distract from the serious issues confronting our country”
Clinton is currently leading in the polls in Ohio but needs to win the March 4 primaries to slow Obama's  11 straight wins.
