Obama campaign accused of threatening NAACP official for criticizing president

By Alex Pappas

President Barack Obama’s campaign is being accused by a Chicago leader of the NAACP of threatening and intimidating him for not supporting the president’s re-election.

David Lowery, the president of the South Suburban Branch of the NAACP in Chicago, says Louis Raymond, the Illinois political director for Obama’s campaign, threatened him during a recent phone conversation, according to a local news report.

WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser, who first broke the story, reports that the threats came after Lowery told the campaign that he doesn’t “personally support the president because he’s not addressing issues important to the black community.”

According to the report, Raymond, the campaign official, responded: “You know what? I know everything about you. We’ve been watching you, and since you don’t support Obama, we’ll deal with you.”

Lowery filed a police report after the conversation.

The Obama campaign claims Lowery misunderstood the phone conversation.

“Unfortunately there seems to have been a miscommunication regarding this conversation and we have since discussed with the campaign staffer in an effort to clarify the matter,” the campaign told the news outlet. “The President continues to support the mission and principles of the NAACP and the work they do.”
