On an appearance on Sean Hannity’s radio show on Monday, “The Amateur” author Edward Klein revealed the name of a  close ally of President Barack Obama that his book alleges offered a  $150,000 bribe to Rev. Jeremiah Wright to be quiet until after the 2008  election.

“Well, what happened is that after ABC’s Brian Ross broadcast the video tapes  of the Rev. Wright ‘God damning America’ and slamming whites and slamming Jews  and America, he was contacted by one of Obama’s closest personal friends — a guy  who travels on Obama’s plane, who plays basketball with him, who goes on  vacation with him,” Klein said. “His name is Dr. Eric Whitaker. Dr. Whitaker is  the vice president of the University of Chicago Medical Center and he’s a member  of Obama’s very tight inner circle. And he sent an email to a member of the  Trinity United Church of Christ.”

Klein reminded listeners that Whitaker’s hospital is the same one that paid  first lady Michelle Obama $316,962 a year to handle community  affairs for the University of Chicago Medical Center while her husband served in  the U.S. Senate.
