This,the first of a series of articles on the Obama home at 5046 S. Greenwood,establishes that three individuals other than Obama are listed in public records as owners and taxpayers on the property.
Barack Obama is not among at least three people listed as current owners and taxpayers of the mansion his family calls home in Chicago’s upscale Kenwood neighborhood,according to public records.
WND reported in December 2008 that William Miceli,the attorney for convicted political operative Tony Rezko and a fundraiser for Obama,owns the Obama home at 5046 S. Greenwood.
Miceli is a lawyer at the Chicago law firm Miner,Barnhill &Galland,which employed Obama when he did legal work for Rezko.
Now,WND has discovered that,along with Miceli,there are at least two other people listed in public records as owners and taxpayers of 5046 S. Greenwood in the South Side neighborhood of Kenwood,an oasis of pricey homes that has attracted professors at nearby University of Chicago.
The Cook County Recorder of Deeds website shows the property was purchased by the Northern Trust Company,with the mortgage recorded Dec. 19,2005. The records suggest a Northern Trust Company trust,perhaps headed by Miceli,was the deed holder.
There are no Cook County records that show Barack or Michelle Obama own 5046 S. Greenwood Ave.,although the likelihood is that the couple are the owners of the Northern Trust Company trust established to buy the property.
