Obama lawyer denies “millions” in fees

This is old news, but as the Internet myth of President Obama spending millions of dollars in legal fees “sealing” documents persists, it bears repeating.

Obama attorney in the California case of Keyes v Bowen (one of the three known cases where Obama was represented by private counsel), Fredric Woocher, said:

“This suit, like all of the others that have been filed challenging Obama’s qualifications for the Presidency, is frivolous,” he said in an email to POLITICO, adding that he is, in fact, working pro bono. “There is absolutely no truth to the stories about the untold millions supposedly being paid to us,” he said.

    Is there a chart anywhere of the 60 or so Birther cases that includes a listing of Plaintiff’s and Defendant’s Attorneys? A link I can point someone to when they ask “What about the army of lawyer’s he’s hired to hid everything”. I don’t think most Birther’s realize how few of the cases include President Obama as a Defendant, and how few attorneys have represented him in these lawsuits.

    The Birther Scorecard is what you want.

    So he is doing it for free? Obama’s get a sweat deal! Sealing up his records for free!

    I’m happy to report MY records are just as sealed up as Obama’s — and it didn’t cost me a dime! All it took was a bunch of privacy laws passed over the last 20 years or so, and POOF, they were sealed.
