Obama Makes “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” List

Obama Makes “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” List

Judicial Watch

Judicial  Watch, the public interest group that investigates and  prosecutes  government corruption, today released its 2010 list of  Washington’s  “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians.” The list, in  alphabetical order,  includes: Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Rahm Emanuel, Former Obama White House Chief of Staff, Senator John Ensign (R-NV), Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL), President Barack Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY), and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)

President Barack Obama: 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.”

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.

In 2010, Obama was caught in a lie over what he knew about Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s scheme to   sell the president’s vacated Senate seat. 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. Unfortunately federal   prosecutors never called the President or his staff to testify under   oath.

The President also broke his famous pledge to televise  healthcare  negotiations. And 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. 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.)

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….

Obama and Sestak

House Republicans failed in a push Wednesday to force the release of White House documents related to potential job offers made to two Democratic Senate primary challengers, Andrew Romanoff in Colorado and Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania.

The Resolution of Inquiry failed on a party-line vote in the House Judiciary Committee, 15-12, leaving Republicans with a diminishing set of options as they try to force a wider investigation into White House efforts to entice Democratic challengers out of two key Senate races.

In the debate before the vote, Democrats insisted administration officials have already addressed the issues sufficiently and pointed to more pressing problems of concern to voters, including the ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

But Republicans insisted there are still unanswered questions in both cases.

 Rahm and Obama most likely broke some law

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and one of his top aides, Jim Messina, have been referred to the government’s Office of Special Counsel for an investigation into whether they violated the Hatch Act by offering administration jobs to two political candidates in exchange for dropping out of their races.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, wrote in letters to William Reukauf, the acting U.S. special counsel, that the statements by the White House and the two candidates involved – Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., and former Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff – are “prima facie” evidence of violations.

The act prohibits “the use of official authority or influence by federal employees for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election,” Issa’s letters dated yesterday – one referring Emanuel and one referring Messina – explained.

“In the White House’s June 3, 2010, public statement, Mr. [Robert] Gibbs claimed that clearing the field for a candidate preferred by the White House was not problematic because ‘there was no offer of a job.’ There is evidence to the contrary,” wrote Issa.
