Obama Former Board Member of the Joyce Foundation

The Joyce Foundation is probably the most anti-gun foundation out there, funding much of the anti-gun research that has been done. It was not particularly surprising to be reminded of Obama's relationship to the organization:

Obama tried to imagine himself in different roles. He considered becoming president of the Joyce Foundation, a Chicago organization that gives out roughly $50 million a year to initiatives on the environment, poverty, violence, and schools. The position was high-profile, well paying, close to home, and appealed to his sense of public mission. Obama knew the foundation's work because he was on its board at the time. . . .

Very Surprising no one is talking about this. Considering the NRA's role in the 2000 race in states like Ohio. I feel this information will Be useful to remind voters of Obama's status with the Joyce Foundation in October and November.
