Barack Obama Pays 15-Year-Old Parking Fines From His Days at Harvard Law School

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, U.S. Senator Barack Obama was a student at Harvard Law School. In fact, Obama was the first African American to serve as editor in chief of the Harvard Law Review.

During his time in Cambridge, Obama amassed 15 tickets for parking violations. All of the outstanding fines remained unpaid until just recently.

Two weeks before announcing his bid for president of the United States last month, all of the parking fines and late fees were paid in full.
