Darrell Issa demands documents on White House political office
the washingon examiner ^ | 3/19/14 | Meghashyam Mali

Posted on 03/19/2014 9:02:23 AM PDT by Nachum

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., is pressing the White House to provide documents for his probe into potential Hatch Act violations.

In a letter Tuesday to White House chief of staff Denis McDonough, Issa raised questions about whether the White House political office is improperly using taxpayer money to promote Democratic party and its candidates.

Issa asked McDonough to "produce all documents and communications, including e-mails, related or referring to the Office of Political Strategy and Outreach or the reopening of the Office of Political Affairs, as soon as possible, but by no later than noon on April 1, 2014."

Impeach the clown and go after Holder.

They don’t co-operate because they know you will do nothing.

If Sebelius can get away scot free with Hatch act violations, surely Obama will too.

In a separate letter to Carolyn Lerner, the head of the Office of Special Counsel, Issa also asked for information about whether former Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis violated the Hatch Act during the 2012 election.

Carolyn Lerner? Any relation to Lois Lerner?

Issa has a bit of a “focus” issue.

Issa is the kid that comes to your house, gets all the toys out, makes a mess and then leaves.

He accomplishes nothing but grandstanding for Issa.

Based on actions alone, one can only conclude that Darrell Issa’s job is to instigate go-nowhere investigations to give the outward appearance of Congressional oversight where none actually exists.

“Issa should know by now...demand in one hand and crap in the other, you get to keep the one that gets filled first.”

Issa demanding something from Obama is not much different than Obama making demands of Putin.

Putin has shown Obama to be incredibly weak. Given that Republican leaders constantly cave to Obama’s demands and dictates, what does their behavior make them?

I know Rep. Annie Kuster sent out a political mailer to voters touting job fairs that might be held in the NH area. These fliers were couched political mailers with office addresses, phone numbers and website. She is up for reelection and spent taxpayers money for this crap.
