House Republicans are starting a probe into Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius soliciting donations from companies her agency might regulate, to help sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.

Sebelius in recent weeks has asked various charitable foundations, businesses executives, churches and doctors to donate money to nonprofit organizations, such as Enroll America, that are helping to implement President Obama's health care overhaul.

The agency said Friday there is a special section within the Public Health Services Act that allows the secretary to solicit financial support for nonprofit organizations conducting public health work

"soliciting donations from companies her agency might regulate"

Prima facie violation of The Hatch Act.

Circumventing the appropriations process is what got Congress all in a tizzy during Iran-Contra. I wonder if they’ll go as apoplectic now over this? /rhetorical

It’s all legal. It was in the bill, and became law when the bill was passed.

One of those things we only got to see after we “passed the bill,” as Natzi Pelosi so memorably put it.

She does look like a ‘has been’, washed-up hooker from the ‘70’s. LOL

Doesn't mean we can't have Sebelius impeached.

Impeaching Sebelius could be a warmup and practice for impeaching other Obama officials...

Maybe we need to pace theses things out, so we have time and resources to get to the bottom of each of theses problems.

That is probably the Obama strategy to get them all out now so that they don’t have to deal with them come election time.

She took lots of money in Kansas when she ran for Gov from Tiller the Killer. She is the Abortion Gov from KS.

Did I just wake up and the GOP decided to grow a set? All of a sudden the invincible Obama could be a target. Eh, call me slightly optimistic that the GOP may actually try to put up a fight, maybe they don’t want to give the “Messiah” free reign.

The TEA Party, Patriot Groups, etc, are the ones that have the fire lit under them.

There may be some in the GOP that realize they will not stay if office... ...unless they act...

Leavenworth or Lansing would be more fitting for her.

Why do we tolerate this?

This abortion loving bitch had already been slapped down hard once for abusing her power but she goes and does it again.

Jail time is the only solution. Keep putting them in jail until government official finally start fearing us like the Founders intended.

Any crime committed by ANY government official must be punished by at minimum twice the prison term for the same crime from the private sector. The reason is that they are not only committing criminal acts but using the power of government force to commit the crime.

“Did I just wake up and the GOP decided to grow a set?”

The GOPe reminds me of how vultures operate. Hang around and wait to see if their next “meal” actually dies. Then if it does, swoop in for the “kill.”

Earlier someone opined on a different thread that “The Gobbler (aka Mr, No Chin) McConnell didn’t have any balls because he had “loaned them” to Boner, who in turn, had given the little peas to Obama. No wonder there’s a rush after a session to the House and Senate Ladie’s Rooms.

Sebelius is a two-bit hooker. The more I learn about her, the more I recognize a truly evil person.

Fits right in with the Obama Chicago crowd of commies, crooks, cronies and crazies.

Welcome back to Kansas, my pretty!

May a house fall on you, Kathleen, and a bucket of water finish you off.

Calling Glenda, Calling Glenda, we have a job for you in Kansas!

Re Sebelius and fundraising. Her theme is “I’m following the crooked Green road”.
