Calif. official whose agency under-reported unemployment stats was Obama campaign donor
Daily Caller ^ | 10/18/12 | Gregg Re

Posted on 10/18/2012 9:06:05 PM PDT by Nachum

Marty Morgenstern, the secretary of the California agency that substantially under-reported unemployment claims last week, contributed to President Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential election campaign, The Daily Caller has learned.

On Oct. 11, the federal government reported that weekly jobless claims were down significantly, suggesting a dramatic national increase in economic growth. But within hours, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that one major state had failed to fully document jobless claims.

Speculation among market watchers and economists initially focused on California, but the state’s Employment Development Department strongly denied that it had failed to properly document the data.

“Reports that California failed to fully report data to the U.S. Department of Labor, as required, are incorrect and irresponsible,” California Employment Development Department director Pam Harris said in a statement last week. “The California Employment Development Department, which administers the Unemployment Insurance (UI) program in the state, has reported all UI claims data and submitted the data on time.”

I don’t think it did him any good. The number is way up this week because of this.

I have no doubt there was collusion between the dimoKKKRATS in Kalifornia as they control virtually every aspect of the state and the Obama campaign. The dimoKKKRATS are slimy creatures.

I am shocked too, so shocked I predicted this.

They said the BLM wasn’t changing the numbers for the election, ..... what they didn’t tell us, they didn’t have to, they were changed in the states.

He described their reporting perfectly - incorrect and irresponsible. Read his bio on the link - appears he was in education before he was appointed to his current post. Must have been using the new math on the reports.

This has come back to bite BO in the dupa this week. Maybe his momma never told him that cheaters never prosper.

MM has been a Democratic administration (labor agency, state worker pension board member) and labor union official for decades. A Demo Sacramento fixture, always well connected and positioned. (I would not have thought he’d deliberately lie or skew the numbers, however....could it possibly have just been a normal bureaucratic snafu?)

Every Obama fan longs for such “opportunities” to help and be remembered by fellow Dems.

Could be. Heck of choice. He's either a moron or a cheater. Take your pick.

LOL...I posted this elsewhere and it received the usual response from the ever-moronic leftists. They diss and mock the “source” and then essentially put their fingers in their ears and chant “lalalalalala”. They truly are a delusionally and willfully ignorant group of people.

Yeah...it was just a conveniently timed coincidence.

Only, in politics, there ARE no coincidents. Especially when dealing with in-the-tank-for-Obama leftists.

Just as long as they spell his name right- and the arrow points to Obama.

I disagree with this statement. The unemployment rate is not up. The 7.8% unemployment rate is a monthly report and is accepted and repeated by Republicans and is loudly touted by Democrats and the MSM as good news. No "asterisks" is mentioned. Obama gets the credit for the reduced number regardless of how contrived it is. The real number will not be published until just before the election (if even then). The weekly reported "unexpected" rise in jobless claims does not resonate with the public and does not change the reported 7.8% rate. The BLS is not going to go back and recalculate the unemployment rate and say "excuse us" but we were just trying to get Obama elected!

There is not much correlation between the weekly new claims report and the monthly jobless rates since it is entirely possible that as new claims spikes for a week or 2 so can hiring. The info determining the monthly report is not taken from the weekly figures of new claims.

That’s true, and the other effect that this is having is what one might call “statistics fatigue.” People know that all the numbers that come out of the government about anything are totally meaningless and nobody except news commentators pays any attention to them anymore.

We’re becoming like the Russians of a few decades ago under communism, who could hardly restrain their laughter when glowing announcements about having achieved the latest car, steel or whatever production goal were triumphantly released. Everybody knew every number they read in Pravda was false, and we know the same about our US Pravda, the Obama mouthpiece MSM.

I agree. The weekly new claims report has little or nothing to do with the unemployment rate reported on a monthly basis.
