Obama streaker gets consolation prize
STATEN ISLAND – British billionaire Alki David won’t pay a Staten Island man $1 million for streaking the president because he failed to meet the promotional stunt’s requirements.
On Oct. 10, Juan Rodriguez, 24, ran naked through a Philadelphia crowd with the name of Alki’s website — BattleCam.com — on his chest as it listened to an Obama. Sadly, the president didn’t seem to see him, which was a must to win the reward.
But Rodriguez didn’t get naked for nothing. Moved by Rodriguez’s need, David will pay his sister’s hospital bills, cover his $1,600 rent and give him an unknown amount of cash.
