Obama's Parking Tickets

BOSTON (AP) -- It looks like Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama got more than an education when he attended Harvard Law School in the late 1980s.

He also got a healthy stack of unpaid parking tickets.

City officials in Cambridge, Massachusetts say the Illinois Senator shelled out 375 dollars in January to finally pay for 15 outstanding parking tickets and their associated late fees.

The tickets were paid two weeks before Obama officially launched his presidential campaign.

Officials say Obama also paid 116 dollars to the neighboring city of Somerville, Massachusetts for unpaid parking fines and an auto excise tax bill dating back to 1990.

An Obama spokeswoman says Obama paid the tickets out of a personal account.
