There has been the game of six degrees of Kevin Bacon, where you can always show a link to actor Kevin Bacon within six steps. Glenn Beck used the same theory last week using Barack Obama in the place of Kevin Bacon.
Today, the six degrees of Obama takes a slightly different turn, one that could cast a shadow over the inetgrity of the judicial process.
Federal District Judge David Carter, who is hearing the case of Barnett v. Obama in the Southern District of California, has just allegedly hired a new law clerk one Siddharth Velamoor.
Velamoor is an associate with the Seattle office of Perkins Coie LLP. This is the same law firm where President Obama’s DNC General Counsel, Robert Bauer, is a partner. Bauer has been referred to as the “birth certificate” czar, coordinating the legal efforts on the President’s behalf. Of course, Robert Bauer is married to Anita Dunn. Ms. Dunn, as we have seen this week, serves as the WH Communications Director, presently charged with being the “General” in the WH war with FOXNews. Ms. Dunn has also recently been shown on tape acknowledging that one of the two “political philosphers” that she turns to is Chairman Mao.
Velamoor received his Juris Doctorate from Comenius University School of Law, in Bratislava, Slovakia, in 2008, according to the West Legal Directory, and Columbia University according to Lexis-Nexis’ Martindale.com. Velamoor was on the staff of the Columbia Journal of Environmental Law.
Velamoor’s “six degrees ” to Obama takes a “memory lane” turn. It appears that Carter’s new law clerk, who was on the Dartmouth debate/forensics team, was also on the debate team in high school, in Mercer Island, WA. Mercer Island— the same high school where Stanley Ann Dunham graduated from before her father moved the family to Hawaii. Mercer Island is also the place where the young mother stopped, according to a high school friend, enroute home to Hawaii, with the infant Barack Obama in the Fall of 1961.
Of all the law firms, of all the law associates, of all the applicants for a Federal Court clerkship, the Judge presiding over an Obama lawsuit hires a law clerk from the firm of one of Obama’s top legal advisors, who comes from the small town in Washington State where Obama’s mother went to high school!! Now that’s six degrees of Obama.
