The FIGHT for The RIGHT!

Obama Cabinet Member on the HOT SEAT!

Just think about this; Obama is not even sworn in as President yet and he and/or his staff or cabinet appointees are the subject of federal scrutiny.

 Bill Richardson is in trouble with the Feds for a “Pay for Play” type scam steering business to a campaign donor (just think he was a semi-favorite for President at one time).

Obama associate Gov. Rod Blagijevich was arrested several weeks ago by the FBI and is being charged with trying to sell Obama’s vacated U.S. Senate seat from Illinois. Obama’s man picked for his Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanual seems to be in the middle as may be Valerie Jarret who the Prez Elect wanted to have the job or maybe even Jesse Jackson Jr. It is not sorted out as yet. This will get interesting IF the Feds offer either Blagojevich or his Chief of Staff, Robert Harris, who was also arrested, a deal to get minimum time in a country club federal prison and either one or both decide to sing a duet and spit out names and data on others. We will be listening…

In the mean time Obama’s transition Team, investigated Obama’s Transition Team and found that Obama’s Transition Team did nothing improper in the Senate seat scandal. Yes, that is right they investigated themselves and issued a report AFTER Obama went on vacation in Hawaii (he was not handy for questions then you see). I do not want anyone to think that Obama is being investigated by the Feds, as far as I know he is not… at this time!

The following article is from the L.A. Times and it touches on some of the information.

Feds probe Gov. Richardson of Obama Cabinet for ‘pay-to-play’
“It seems that Illinois’ legally challenged Gov. Rod Blagojevich is not the only close Barack Obama associate and Democrat governor being investigated by the feds for possibly selling government business in return for campaign contributions.

New Mexico’s Gov. Bill Richardson, who is the newly named Secretary of Commerce in Obama’s about-to-be Cabinet, is also being investigated by a federal grand jury in his home state for possibly steering state bond business from the New Mexico Financial Authority toward David Rubin, a significant campaign contributor, according to an NBC News report, among others.” –
