Billy Beer The Sequel: Obama's Brother Denied Entry into UK

You remember Jimmy Carter’s embarrassment of a brother Billy? Well, Obama’s got a brother, Samson Obama, who makes Billy Carter look like Bob Hope.

The BBC has the lowdown on Obama’s lowdown half-brother:

Barack Obama's half-brother was denied entry to the UK after being accused of a serious crime on an earlier visit, the Home Office has confirmed. Samson Obama, who lives in Kenya, was on his way to the US presidential inauguration in January when he was stopped at East Midlands Airport.

According to the News of the World, fingerprint tests linked him to an alleged sex attack on a British girl. He was questioned but not charged over the incident in Berkshire, it added. A Home Office spokesman said Samson Obama was denied a visa after immigration officers noticed one of his documents was false. That led them to further inquiries.

Samson Obama, who runs a mobile phone shop outside Nairobi, had been planning to make a short break in the UK on his way to Washington. He eventually took a connecting flight to the US without formally entering the UK.

A UK Border Agency spokesman said in general, Britain would oppose the entry of individuals where their presence was "not conducive to the public good".

I want to repeat just one line of this report:

A Home Office spokesman said Samson Obama was denied a visa after immigration officers noticed one of his documents was false.

I wonder if that attribute runs in the Obama family?
