Dem. Chair Invested in Swiss Banks, Foreign Drug Companies, and the State Bank of India
weeklystandard.com ^ | DANIEL HALPER | JUL 10, 2012

Disclosure forms reveal that Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of Congress from Florida, previously held funds with investments in Swiss banks, foreign drug companies, and the state bank of India. This revelation comes mere days after the Democratic chair attacked presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for holding money in Swiss bank accounts in the past.

"Americans need to ask themselves, why does an American businessman need a Swiss bank account and secretive investments like that?" the DNC chair, a chief surrogate for President Obama's reelection team, said on Fox News Sunday two days ago. "Just something, a thought, that I'd like to leave folks with."

If I had enough money to matter, I can think of a lot of reasons I wouldn’t want everyone to know how I had it invested.

Allan West should send her another letter.

The last one was a classic:

From: Z112 West, Allen
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

Why is this news?

She is a prominent democrat and, by process of elimination, a prominent fraud.

She should not be allowed to pose with Old Glory in the background. But then again, there are some PUBs who do the same.

From the article
But disclosure forms reveal that in 2010, Wasserman Schultz invested between $1,001-$15,000 in a 401k retirement fund run by Davis Financial Fund. As the fund discloses, it is invested in the Julius Baer Group Ltd. and the State Bank of India GDR Ltd., as well as other financial, insurance, bank institutions.


Look, I’m so not a fan of DWS...but not sure a 401k investment is the same as Willard’s deposits into off shore accounts. I don’t think going after DWS on this issue is going to prove effective with the general public. Most people probably don’t even know how their 401k fund is invested.

The dem’s attacks on MR do seem to be having an impact right now...who knows if it will still be effective a week from now. MR’s pol team needs to come up with a better response than ignoring the attact. Good grief...even Gov Bailey said MR should show more tax returns.

As my tag says...I’m not a big MR fan....but I WILL be voting against O. (not that it will matter in my state. sigh). But c’mon Willard...put up some fight for goodness sakes.

“not sure a 401k investment is the same as Willard’s deposits into off shore accounts”

The end result is the same.

The only difference is that Debbie is probably too dumb to make her own investments.

You really think a small amount of money put into a 401k is the same as proactively investing/parking millions of dollars into off shore/foreign accounts? I don’t. But I wasn’t really referring to what I think of DWS’ investments. I’m more interested in how MR and his handlers are managing this campaign.

It could also be I just despise MR so much I’m not seeing the ‘positive’ aspects of MR and how he’s running this campaign. I really do loathe MR. It’s so dang hard to even look at him let alone hear him speak. And maybe it’s just me, but why does he always appear to be hiding behind his wife when they have a joint interview?

Of courseI loathe BO more than MR (although it’s hard to see much dif between the two on many core issues). Gak. As bad as 2008 was...at least I could vote FOR someone and not feel like I had to go take a long shower to wash off the stench.

The Democrats must loathe Drudge.

Anyway, I hope they make Sgt. Schultz’s appointment a lifetime role.

“We own the economy. We own the beginning of the turnaround and we want to make sure that we continue that pace of recovery, not go back to the policies of the past under the Bush administration that put us in the ditch in the first place,” Wasserman Schultz

Such a waste of perfectly good fire.

Hopefully the pitchfork had a lifetime warranty and came through okay.

Pardon me, but she is not JUST some random worker.

She is Debbie Wasserman Schultz, high profile chairperson of the Democrat National Committee.

As a professional politician for nearly twenty continuous years, she bloody well better know where her money's been going if she's going to cast aspersions on others.

Her father is a CPA so she shouldn't be a stranger to these things.

I get that you and I know who she is...and that you think she’s done the same thing as MR in parking her money outside the USA. Doesn’t mean the avg person on the street is going to see it the same. Also doesn’t mean that her stink clears the air for MR’s stink to be forgotten.

I would just like to have a candidate for President that I could be proud of and who wasn’t such a dang weasel. Really, is that too much to ask for? Whatever DWS has done here...doesn’t make MR a freaking hero.

Anyone invested in funds likely owns foreign investments. Most pooled pension plans invest in funds.

IOW everyone in Congress has foreign investments and much of the American public including government, fed, state, and city, employees.

Was She Hiding Obama Campaign Money that came from the Red Chinese?

Or just protecting Her assets from taxation?

You know these Democrats like Schultz are hypocrites

Why was She secreting Huge amounts of Cash in Swis accounts???

America is tired of these Types skulking in the shadows.

Its time for a new President.

She wasn’t “secreting Huge amounts of Cash in Swiss accounts.” She had money in a mutual fund that owned stck in a Swiss bank. No Swiss banks involved.
