Man Who Introduced Obama At Rally Owes $500G To Former Employer
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (CBS Cleveland/AP) — An Ohio man who says he once lost his job and introduced President Barack Obama at a rally on Friday had been accused of stealing trade secrets by a former boss.
Court records show that Daniel Potkanowicz and a business partner in the Youngstown area were ordered to pay $500,000 to Clearview Window & Door after a judge ruled in 2009 that they had violated trade secrets.
The Vindicator newspaper in Youngstown reports that the two partners have not paid back the money.
Potkanowicz told the newspaper that he didn’t want to talk about his past.
