Obama Frees Dem Governor’s Crack Dealing Cousin


Hope, Change and Crack. Obama freed a number of crack dealers and suspected crack dealers, including a repeat offender who dealt crack with his five-year-old daughter in the back seat… and a Dem governor’s crack dealing cousin.

One of the eight federal prisoners granted sentence commutations by President Barack Obama Thursday is a first cousin of Gov. Deval Patrick (D-Mass), one of the president’s most devoted supporters on the national political scene.

Reynolds Allen Wintersmith Jr. was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted in Illinois federal court in 1994 of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and distribute cocaine and cocaine base and possession with intent to distribute crack. He was 19 at the time of his arrest and 17 at the time he got involved running drugs for the Gangster Disciples gang. He is 39 today and has spent the last 19 years in prison.

Gangster Disciplines are incidentally one of the largest gangs in Chicago, in various flavors, and heavily involved in Chicago politics.

A spokeswoman for Patrick confirmed that the 57-year-old Massachusetts governor and Wintersmith are cousins, but denied any involvement in the drive to get the federal prisoner a rare commutation — one of only nine Obama has granted as president.

Must be one of those coincidences.

“The Governor has no recollection of meeting Mr. Wintersmith (they are quite far apart in age), and believes that if they did meet, it would have been when Mr. Wintersmith was a small boy. The Governor was not involved in any application for a commutation of Mr. Wintersmith’s sentence, and only learned of the commutation through today’s media reports,” said the Patrick aide, who asked not to be named.

Is that like how Obama had no recollection of meeting the illegal alien uncle he stayed with?

    What is the name of the token white boy crack dealer the One commutated a drug dealing sentence for?

    It’s a good thing America is getting a taste of black rule. For now, it’s still optional but when whites become a minority (a prospect David Letterman’s audience cheered with abandon), it won’t be.

    • alericKong

      Doubtful they will become a minority. Maybe under 50%, but that’s also with the ink drop criteria and morons who suddenly self-identify as Hispanic or Native American, for instance Elizabeth Warren.

      • Jakareh

        Under 50 percent is a minority by definition and all projections say that will happen.

        • alericKong

          No, it’s only a minority if you group white vs. non-white, instead of each ethnicity. I believe it’s called a minority-majority.

          Also it counts mixed ethnicities as non-white, and people who self identify.

          • Jakareh

            I don’t understand what you’re talking about. All I understand is the dictionary definition:
            “the smaller part or number; a number, part, or amount forming less than half of the whole.”

          • alericKong

            If the population is

            49% white
            20% latino
            20% black
            11% asian

            Whites are the majority. It’s only a majority if you view 49% white, 51% non-white. Good luck with that, and that opens debate of what gets aggregated with white ethnicity.

            Also numbers like these are based on self-identification in the census with dozens of mixed racial categories which declassify against white. With self-identification, Elizabeth Warren and Johnny Depp are Native Americans, George Zimmerman’s white, Tiger Woods is Asian, and P-Diddy is Puerto Rican.

          • Jakareh

            It’s not a matter of viewing anything, it’s a matter of knowing the definition of “majority”, which you should by now since I have given it to you. When a group is the largest group of several yet is less than half of the total (as whites in your example), that’s called a “plurality”, not a majority. This is not up to interpretation, it’s a question of basic knowledge.

    He was 19 at the time of his arrest and 17 at the time he got involved running drugs for the Gangster Disciples gang.

    the Gangster Disciples gang was one of the bloodiest gangs….it won’t take much time for this thug to bring terror to the streets again….I wonder if he ever sold drugs to community organizers…….
