Obama got a $65 million check after leaving office from the publisher he awarded the contract to during his term This is what we call a “bribe” and they’re supposed to be illegal... *paging AG Barr* -- “Obama gave Pearson Publishing $350 million to create Commoncore text and Pearson gave Obama a $65 million dollar book deal in return. Quid Pro Quo. Media silent…” https://iotwreport.com/lets-talk-quid-pro-quo/ -- When word broke early last week that former president and first lady Barack and Michelle Obama had landed a joint deal at Penguin Random House worth a reported $65 million, many in the industry were stunned.
