Obama doesn’t invite GOP leaders to his dinner, but does invite convicted felons

Hope and Change, baby!

The Obamas welcome guests to their first State Dinner last night.

The Obama White House invited convicted felon and HuffPo contributor Robert Creamer to the first State Dinner last night in Washington DC.
ABC7 reported in 2006 on his prison sentence:

The husband of an Illinois congresswoman was sentenced to five months in prison Wednesday. Robert Creamer is married to US Representative Jan Schakowsky. He was convicted on charges of writing bad checks and tax evasion.

This is a case that ends with both sides claiming to be disappointed with the sentence. Federal prosecutors wanted two-and-a-half to three years in prison for Creamer’s blatant violations of the law, even after a visit from the FBI. Creamer’s supporters wanted probation for a man who spent a lifetime fighting for social justice and broke the law so he could keep fighting for the causes he believed in.

“Of course I’m disappointed that the sentence imposed today includes a period of incarceration. But the judge is a fair and thoughtful man, and I accept his judgment,” said Creamer.

Creamer is also tied to ACORN out of Chicago.

Howerver, top Republicans did not make the list.
The Washington Times reported:

House Minority Leader John A. Boehner won’t be there; he’s on Thanksgiving break and home in Ohio. His deputy, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, also didn’t get an invitation to the dinner.
