Barack Obama has been encored on the “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians”
for 2010, a list published annually by the a Washington-based organization that
focuses on transparency, accountability and integrity in the government,
politics and law of the United States.
“Remember the promise President Obama made just after his inauguration in
2009? ‘Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this
presidency,'” said Judicial Watch in
today’s announcement.
“Instead, Americans have suffered through lies, stonewalling, cover-ups,
corruption, secrecy, scandal and blatant disregard for the rule of law … this
has been the Obama legacy in its first two years.”
The full list, in alphabetical order, names: Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.;
Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel; Sen. John Ensign, R-N.V.; Rep.
Barney Frank, D-Mass.; Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., D-Ill.; Barack Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.; Rep. Charles Rangel,
D-N.Y.; Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky.; and Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.
About Obama, the report said he was “caught in a lie” over what he knew about
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s “scheme to sell the president’s vacated Senate
seate.”
The report explained, “Blagojevich’s former Chief of Staff John Harris
testified that Obama had personal knowledge of Blago’s plot to obtain a
presidential cabinet position in exchange for appointing a candidate handpicked
by the president. In fact, according to Harris’s court testimony, Obama sent
Blagojevich a list of ‘acceptable’ Senate candidates to fill his old seat. Obama
was interviewed by the FBI even before he was sworn into office. He claimed he
and his staff had no contact with Blagojevich’s office.”
The White House did not respond to a WND request for comment.
According to Judicial Watch, “Unfortunately federal prosecutors never called
the president or his staff to testify under oath.”
Further, Obama broke “his famous pledge to televise health-care
negotiations.”
“In 2010, we learned why he broke his pledge. In what is now known as the
‘Cornhusker Kickback’ scheme, Obama and the Democrats in the Senate ‘purchased’
the vote of one of the last Democrat hold-outs, Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson, who
opposed Obamacare over the issue of covering abortions with taxpayer funds,” the
report said.
“Nelson abandoned his opposition to Obamacare after receiving millions of
dollars in federal aid for his home state, helping to give the Democrats the 60
votes they needed to overcome a Republican filibuster. Same goes for Louisiana
Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu, who received a $100 million payoff in what has
been called ‘The Louisiana Purchase.’ (The Kickback was so corrupt that
Democrats stripped it out at the last minute. The Louisiana Purchase, on the
other hand, became law of the land.)” the report said.
“Obama lied about his White House’s involvement in this legislative bribery
that helped lead to the passage of the signature policy achievement of his
presidency,” the report said.
