Ties to Obama Aided in Access for Exelon Corporation - NYTimes.com

Surprised this hasn’t made Drudge.  Old news especially to us in Illinois but odd to see the NYT putting it Front Page today.
Still, the relationship between Mr. Obama and Exelon has been mutually beneficial. The ties go back at least to Mr. Obama’s tenure in the Illinois State Senate, when he befriended an Exelon lobbyist named Frank M. Clark. Exelon’s employees, including Mr. Clark, were among the biggest financial supporters of Mr. Obama’s United States Senate campaign, with donations also from Mr. Rowe, then the company’s chief executive, and others in the executive suite, campaign finance records show.

I suspect the ties go way back to Tom “Dad of Bill” Ayers
