Just found this nugget on Wkipedia. What about "Weatherman" Bill Ayers?

    I don't recall the complete circumstances but Ayres was able to reach some agreement with the government not to prosecute him over his Weatherman activities. I remember that it was some bogus bull shit agreement the government agreed to.

    You could probably find the circumstances with a google search unless Obama has had it cleaned off the Internet. (I've noticed incriminating facts about Obama and his friends have been dissappearing off the Internet over the last few years.)
