A Boston Housing Authority director says Barack Obama’s aunt, a Kenyan woman who has lived in public housing for five years, is an “exemplary resident” and only recently did anyone know of her connection to the presidential contender.

Obama’s campaign spokesman Reid Cherlin confirmed to the Herald yesterday that Zeituni Onyango, 56, who lives on Flaherty Way in South Boston, is Obama’s aunt on his father’s side.

Onyango, a Kenyan native, is believed to be the “Aunti Zeituni” in Obama’s memoir, “Dreams From My Father.”

It wasn’t until recently, when a London newspaper started making inquiries about Onyango, that Deputy Director Bill McGonagle learned of the link.

McGonagle said BHA employees were caught off guard.

“We were as surprised as anyone,” he said. “We were a little bit flabbergasted.”

Onyango has lived in Boston public housing for five years, McGonagle said.

“She has been an exemplary resident,” he said.

She received a small stipend over the past year for working six hours a week as a volunteer resident health advocate in her complex, he said.

Little else is known about her.

Onyango had conversations with several BHA employees in recent days about her blood ties to the senator, McGonagle said. She proudly displays photos of Obama, including some that appear as old as 25 years, inside her first-floor apartment, McGonagle said.

A message left at Onyango’s apartment was not returned.

McGonagle asked that the media respect Onyango’s privacy.

“She is feeling very put upon,” he said.

yes if u go down a bit i posted another later post on this, i think i heard this on tv, or i may have it in the second post, obama gave back like 200 adn something dollars to her as its illegal to accept contributions from foreign nationals, i think was the term used, anyway she was ordered by a judge years ago to leave, but as we see she did not go.

The man is a friggin joke, a Jr. Senator , no track record of accomplishments, votes on raising taxes on the $42,000 income range, spreading the wealth at whose expense ? God forbid he wins there will be alot of very unhappy people when he starts hacking away benefits.

well we all know he is going to win, and it will be a scary time for america, no one now really knows what he will be like or do, he really cant help the ecomony, as murdock says politicians at this point cant really help but they can hurt. but as for forgien policy, and our national defense, it will be a scary time, i still have to pinch myself to realize this is really happening in america,, i can only as my beliefs are pray, he is not as he seems.. and we have only like 58 dem senators after the election, as some think will be the outcome,take 60 for vote closure that will be the thing to watch but snow from maine a rep. votes with the dems alot, i think im correct on that, and maybe the other rep. senator, because its not a yes or no vote that we are looking for but a vote on closure, to end a filibuster and allow a vote, so the dems may still even get a vote on thing, it will be interesting, take care

Dems will have control of the House and the Senate and heaven forbid a Dem. president , good ole Nancy will have a field day screwing up everything she comes in contact with. Spending will be rampant with no curbing control and with Obama so wishy-washy on his taxing brackets , we will be back to $42,000 real quick since is has approved that once before. And the spreading the wealth, reckon who will foot the bill for these freebee checks and welfare benefits ...or the paying illegals from Social Security coffers and openly giving them foodstamps and welfare...With Obama at the helm we are screwed.
