Remember the name 'Courtney DuPree' when Obama starts handing out pardons

I stole that headline from Jammie Wearing Fool who points us to the Obama fundraiser found guilty in a $21 million bank fraud scheme. And, no, his name's not Rezko.

Seems to be an awful lot of Barack Obama’s buddies who keep winding up in prison.

A Democratic fundraiser was found guilty Friday of engineering a $21 million bank fraud scheme... Courtney Dupree was convicted of vastly overstating the billings of his Long Island City-based lighting company GDC Acquisitions in order to fraudulently obtain a loan from Amalgamated Bank.

...Dupree, who attended the elite Wharton School of Business, was a rainmaker in Democratic circles... In 2008, Dupree hosted a $1,000-a-ticket fund-raiser for Barack Obama at his Broad St. apartment that was attended by top aide Valerie Jarrett.

But maybe he was doing it for the children.

Just wondering: when you update your LinkedIn profile for prison, do you include your cell block?
