Who is Larry Sinclair? He’s the man responsible for some of the most outlandish rumors about Barack Obama during this election cycle, an achievement which he’ll celebrate during an address today at the National Press Club. He is also, as Politico’s Ben Smith discovered, a wanted man:
Public records and court filings reveal that he has a 27-year criminal record, with a specialty in crimes involving deceit. The record includes forgery charges in two states, one of which drew Sinclair a 16-year jail sentence. The Pueblo County, Colorado, Sheriff’s Office also has an outstanding warrant for Sinclair’s arrest for forging an acquaintance’s signature and stealing her tax refunds.
This campaign is really bringing out the best America has to offer, isn’t it?
