Zomblog has located a 1997 endorsement by Barack Obama of a William Ayers book.

Obama provided the following:

A searing and timely account of the juvenile court system, and the courageous individuals who rescue hope from despair

The book is called Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court.

FoxNews quotes a passage from the book that mentions not only Barack Obama, but praises Louis Farrakhan and his “security force.”

Our neighbors include Muhammad Ali, former mayor Eugene Sawyer, poets Gwendolyn Brooks and Elizabeth Alexander, and writer Barack Obama.Minister Louis Farrakhan lives a block from our home and adds, we think, a unique dimension to the idea of ‘safe neighborhood watch': the Fruit of Islam, his security force, has an eye on things twenty-four-hours a day.

Patterico.com provides evidence that in 1995, two years before Ayers’ book was published, Obama launched his political career in the home of William Ayers.

There is evidence by Stanley Kurtz, AmericanThinker.com, and PowerLineBlog.com – and others linked to from these sites – that at the time, Obama was a member of “New Party” – created by the Democratic Socialist Party – backed, driven and steered by ACORN people and putting forward a clearly anti-capitalist, re-distributionist agenda.

Here is a 1995 article by Hank De Zutter at ChicagorReader.com, with extensive quotes from Obama and from one of his enthusiastic supporters – Madeline Talbott – at ACORN, about Obama’s work in running workshops.
