I think it's safe to say he got the black vote.

That's the general mindset of the people who reelected Obama. Nothing matters except their guy getting elected. The story I read said this was just the latest criminal matter and he's been "immersed in a cloud of federal scrutiny for the past three years". That means this is the second election where his integrity was in question. Add to this one his mental stability and ability to actually be there to serve, and it still doesn't matter. :roll:

I realize it's a wild conjecture, and hard to believe, but I'm sticking with it.
