Obama Reports For Jury Duty, Personally Thanks Others For ‘Being Willing’ To Serve




Former President Obama reported for jury duty on Wednesday at Chicago’s Daley Center, where he personally greeted and shook hands with fellow jury candidates, thanking them for “being willing” to serve.

“How’s everybody doing? Nice to see you,” Obama said.

“Thanks everybody, for serving on the jury,” he continues. “Or at least being willing to.”




The Hill added:

Obama left his home in the South Side of Chicago around 9:30 a.m. and arrived for duty around 10 a.m., according to The Chicago Tribune.

The Obama family currently resides in Washington, though the former first couple owns a house in Chicago’s Kenwood neighborhood.

Chief Judge Timothy Evans said last month the former president would be attending jury duty, according to ABC 7 Chicago.

Obama would be paid the standard $17.20 a day for his jury service, the Tribune reported.
