Confirming what was reported here on Global Labor during the presidential campaign, former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers and President elect Barack Obama have a closer relationship than previously understood, the Chicago Tribune is reporting today.
Obama and Ayers are “family friends” according to Ayers himself, the Chicago Tribune said. Ayers made the admission in a new edition of Fugitive Days, his memoir of his days as a terrorist in the Weather group which the Tribune obtained.
It would appear that, indeed, Ayers laid low during the campaign to avoid being a albatross for Obama.
What will the New York Times say now?
