Marty Morgenstern, the secretary of the California agency that substantially under-reported unemployment claims last week, contributed to President Barack Obamas 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 states 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.
They should go to prison for this.
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.
The customary punishment for treason is hanging.
Can someone slap them silly before that?
I certainly hope so.
Manipulating the markets?
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.
