6. Obama does, as a State Pensioner, BUT...

Illinois state employees are invested (with their pension fund) in Sensata, and the President served in Illinois as a state senator.

BUT...

We're NOT telling folks to divest from the company... which is the only thing President Obama could possibly do, owning so little interest in the company.

Divesting from the company is, in fact, the LAST thing we want to see.

We want the plant in Freeport to stay in Illinois and remain a profitable American company.

President Obama's stake in the company is probably less than 1% of 1%, while Mitt Romney controls a full 51%.

That's why we're badgering the Massachusetts Governor instead of the former Illinois state senator.
