Advice on green energy czar Van Jones: Hire him!
Van Jones, we were so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House, we've been watching him, really, for - he's not that old but for as long as he's been active out of Oakland and all of the ways that he has - the creative ideas that he has and so now we have captured that and we have all that energy and enthusiasm in the White House
<>Advice on Healthcare: Dump and Deceive the Poor Public (in action, not word)
MICHELLE'S DUMPING DESIGNS
Republicans on Capitol Hill are taking a fresh look at one of the seedier Chicago stories from Barack and Michelle Obama's past in ratcheting up the debate on Obamacare: the University of Chicago Hospital's "Urban Health Initiative," which Michelle Obama ran prior to her taking a leave of absence to campaign with her husband in 2007.
Because of the medical center's location on the South Side of Chicago, a large number of indigent patients, without health insurance, were using the hospital's emergency room for care. The nonprofit hospital, which in 2007 made more than $100 million in profits, largely because its beds and facilities were used by paying patients and those fully insured, paid Mrs. Obama to oversee the Urban Health Initiative program that identified indigent patients and then steered them to other area medical facilities. In fact, some of those profits came from Canadian citizens who traveled to the U.S. for medical procedures they could not get due to Canada's restrictive national health care programs.
It wasn't just Obama's wife who was involved in creating the program. Senior White House adviser and political strategist, David Axelrod, and his PR firm in Chicago were retained to develop a media campaign to encourage area residents not to use University of Chicago as a medical facility. Senior White House official, and Obama friend, Valerie Jarrett served on the board of directors of the hospital and approved the plan for the Urban Health Initiative, and the hiring of Axelrod. And on the recommendation of then Senator Obama, Dr. Eric Whitaker, was named director of the Initiative in late 2007, after serving as the director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, a job he got after Obama recommended him to then Gov. Rod Blagojevich via another Obama crony, Tony Rezko, a fund-raiser for Obama and now a convicted felon on federal corruption charges. Candidate Obama thought enough of the program to tout it as an example of how health care reform should be done
The resultant PR campaign was a study in Orwellian audacity. Chicago's inner city residents soon began hearing that UCMC's patient dumping program would "dramatically improve health care for thousands of South Side residents" and that the medical center was generously willing to provide "a ride on a shuttle bus to other centers." Likewise, the people who ran the community hospitals to which these unwanted patients were being shuttled began to read claims in local media to the effect that the Urban Health Initiative was good for them as well. Dr. Eric Whitaker, the Blagojevich crony who succeeded Mrs. Obama as Director of the program, repeatedly assured gullible reporters that the financial impact on these hospitals would be positive: "The initiative actually is improving their bottom lines." The CFOs of those hospitals were no doubt relieved to learn that treating Medicaid and uninsured patients is profitable.

Advice on Public Housing for the Poor and Underpriviledged: Screw em! (in action, not word)
Valerie Jarrett is the chief executive of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 until this winter and co-managed an even larger subsidized complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006, after city inspectors found widespread problems.
The owner, a local nonprofit company called Woodlawn Preservation and Investment Corp....Woodlawn Preservation hired a private management firm, William Moorehead and Associates, to oversee the complex. In 2001, the company lost that contract and a contract to manage several public housing projects for allegedly failing to do its job. The company's head, William Moorehead, was subsequently convicted of embezzling almost $1 million in management fees.
Woodlawn Preservation hired a new property manager, Habitat Co. At the time, the company was headed by its founder, Daniel Levin, also a major contributor to Obama's campaigns. Valerie Jarrett was executive vice president.
Residents say the complex deteriorated under Moorehead's management and continued to decline after Habitat took over. A maintenance worker at the complex says money often wasn't even available for steel wool to plug rat holes. But as late as 2003, a routine federal inspection still gave conditions at Grove Parc a score of 82 on a 100-point scale.
About 99 of the units are vacant, many rendered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. Mice scamper through the halls. Battered mailboxes hang open. Sewage backs up into kitchen sinks. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale - a score so bad the buildings now face demolition.
What the NYTs 8,100-word Valerie Jarrett profile didnt tell you http://michellemalkin.com/2009/07/27/what-the-nyts-8100-word-valerie-jarrett-profile-didnt-tell-you/
Who Advises Valerie Jarrett?
Jarrett has surrounded herself with some rather unsavory characters who appear to be more like 'enforcers' than 'advisers.'
Meet Mike Strautmanis, Jarrett's Chief of Staff.
Strautmanis is one of Barack and Michelle Obama's closest friends, going all the way back to the beginning in Chicago. He has worked not only for the Obamas but for disgraced former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.
But here is an interesting tidbit concerning Strautmanis, in Jarrett's own words:
Obama describes him as a utility man, and campaign advisor and Obama family friend Valerie Jarrett says hes the person you call when you need help with a delicate situation. He understands the importance of the personal touch and that e-mails and phone calls are not always appropriate, she said, talking about a specific example that she wouldnt describe in detail
Valerie Jarretts compensation for her sound(?) advice
Since moving to the White House, Jarrett has resigned her position as chief executive of Habitat Co., one of the Midwest's largest property-management firms. Her report shows she earned $550,000 in deferred compensation from Habitat Executive Services, plus a salary of $302,000 in 2008.
She also reported $346,687 in income from serving on seven boards, including the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. Jarrett's most lucrative fee as a director was $146,643 from Chicago-based USG Corp., a building products maker.
Jarrett is also still receiving compensation from the Chicago Transit Authority, where she was Mayor Richard Daley's handpicked chairwoman from 1995 to 2003. She estimated $35,559 in deferred compensation as part of the CTA's supplemental retirement plan.
Jarrett reported a money market fund holding between $1 million and $5 million.
This takeover has to have been in the planning for years or did they simply move the operation from Chicago to DC?
I think it might be safe to say that’s there not one honest or clean person in the whole of the adminstration.
Audit and investigate all of them, starting at the top.
This is who the man is. A cauldron of corruption, greed, marxism and communism...who is detroying the free market and fundamental republican principle as we speak in his bid for "fundamental change" and to replace it all with a marxist command economy built on the ashes.
Thank you, Michelle Malkin!
STARWISE, My clue was Cardinal George, but you’re in Chicago, right? Wow! A wealth of of information.
Yes .. a relative newbie .. but it doesn’t
take long to grasp the breadth and depth of
The Machine .. ;)
MSM is playing us for fools. Covering for Mob Obama. I’m sickened.
Obama's IL senate mentor, Emil Jones, and Auchi
Path to Power
Like Obama, Jarrett has a somewhat unusual life story, something they bonded over when the two first met in 1991.
Jarretts father [see below] was a doctor, and in the 1950s, he and his wife, Barbara, who is an expert in early childhood development, moved to Shiraz, Iran, about 500 miles south of Tehran. He was part of a program that sent American doctors and agriculture experts to developing nations,
and Jarrett was born in 1956 at Nemazee Hospital, the brand-new hospital for which he father worked. They lived in Iran for six years, and moved to England for one year before returned to Chicago and settling in Hyde Park
Nemazee Capital, established in 1987, invests in health care, media, oil and natural gas and other industries, according to the firms Web site. The firm has more than $3 billion under management, according to a July press release.
Hassan Nemazee was born in Washington in 1950 and graduated with honors from Harvard University in 1972, according to his Web site.
The online site lists affiliations with institutions including the RAND Center for Middle East Public Policy, the Asia Society, Harvards Center for International Affairs
and Nemazee Hospital in Shiraz, Iran, which was built into a modern facility by his father, Mohamed Nemazee, according to the site.
Top Obama Fundraiser & CFR Member [HASSAN NEMAZEE] arrested for stealing $74 Million (Read 284 times)
« on: August 25, 2009, 07:15:13 PM »
August 25, 2009
Here’s the US Attorney of the Southern District Preet Bharara’s complaint against Democratic mega-donor Hassan Nemazee, the chairman of Nemazee Capital Corp. who was arrested today on charges that he used phony documents to trick Citigroup Inc. into lending him up to $74 million.
Nemazee is perhaps best known as a fundraiser for both President Obama and former Sen. Hillary Clinton.
He also served as national finance chairman for the DSCC when it was headed by Sen. Chuck Schumer, which is sort of ironic, considering that Bharara was, until very recently, working as chief counsel to the senior senator of New York.
Nemazee has maxed out in contributions to both Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, giving them a total of $4,800 each (two $2,400 checks to Schumer in April - one for the primary, one for the general - and two of the same amount to Gillibrand in June).
Woops. I missed some additional contributions. Nemazee gave Gillibrand $1,000 in 2005 and another $1,000 in 2006. He gave two $2,000 donations to Rep. Carolyn Maloney in 2005. There was also $151,700 to the DSCC between March 2006 and March 2009.
I’m still awaiting word on whether this money will be returned.
Nemazee, Hassan Complaint
Jarrett’s ties to the University of Chicago are longstanding.
Her father, James Bowman, is Professor Emeritus in Pathology and Medicine at the University and the first African American to be tenured in the Division of Biological Sciences. The University’s Bowman Society, which promotes minority health care and diversity in the biological sciences, is named after him.
Lets go get these guys!
I posted this on an Eric Holder thread because I will never forget this conversation between Glenn Beck & Pat Caddell (a Democratic Consultant). He was genuinely shaken by the revelations on Glenn Beck program that week.
Does the average registered liberal or moderate Democrat know by whom and by what their party has been hijacked?
Pat Caddell asks the same question.
PAT CADDELL, a Democratic consultant (of whom Ann Coulter says, He is probably the worlds sanest Democrat.), on the Glenn Beck program August 27, 2009:
Caddell: People outside at the very ends come together in totalitarianism. And by the way, there are wacko Republicans and we could name them, but I am concerned right now in my own party [Democratic], that we seem to be infiltrated by forces. And its all part of this we must win at all costs. The politicians-its the thing with ACORN that drives me crazy. This is a criminal organization designed to stop people and steal votes.
Moderate Democrats in my party-the Republicans dont know how to raise this issue. The fact is, with the things that are going on...These politicians take an oath to defend the CONSTITUTION against all enemies foreign and domestic, not an oath to protect the Democratic party or the Republican party, and thats what we are missing here. And I am saying, I am concerned that my party [Democratic] is being sabotaged. And Moderate Democrats better come and deal with whats happening to us.
Beck: I think theres 70% or 80% of this country, they want no part of this.
Caudell: At least 80%. They think the politicians work for themselves
Beck: On both sides of the aisle.
Caddell on 1000 page bills, and Eric Holder and whose running the show here.
See Glenn Beck video clip, Glenn Beck program, 8/24/09:
Caddell: I am of the democrats of the common man. Thats where I come from. This is a different Democratic Party.
Washington has made itself the ENEMY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
Beck: Would you say that its revolutionary?
Caddell: I would say that it is ELITIST; that it knows best.
Caddell on 1000 pg bills - the dog thats not barking.
Caddell: I think they are flooding the zone....Sending out so many things that nobody can cover it all. But what bothers me is a question that should be asked. I was with an administration and the President comes in [Carter], a President who had not been experienced in Washington-and 6 months in, people were still trying to find where the bathrooms were.
Where did all these pieces of programs come from in this kind of detail? Where do you get 1000 pages or 1300 pages one after the other in such a short amount of time? Those are the questions that somebody ought to ask because its the dog thats not barking.
Caddell on Eric Holder and CIA investigation:
Glenn Beck: People think Obama is using the unions. Is it possible that it is the other way around, and I just dont mean just the unions-these vast organizations-that he is not necessarily the grand architect; that somebody else has sketched this out?
Caddell: I got to tell you, this question hit me today...when the Attorney General Eric Holder, who I have not been publicly very fond of ever since he decided to go in the bag on China on the treasons and trying to buy our elections during the Clinton administration; and gave Marc Rich a pardon, one of the most evil men that ever walked the face of the earth, and this covering up.
And now [Holder] decides that Black Panthers, who carry guns into precincts, should not be prosecuted!
But despite the President saying we are going to move on on interrogation policy [Holder] announces he is going to have a special prosecutor today and appoints one and [President says] Im going with it.
Who is running the show here? For the first time, I have to ask myself, Is Barack Obama really in control here? Either he is disingenuous, which I wish not to believe about the President of the United States, or maybe the question is, Who is really in control here?....
The President said we were going to move on; the country said move on on the interrogation policy. Eric Holder announces he is going to have a special prosecutor today. Hes under pressure from the ACLU, fromMoveon.org-from many of the very, very most liberal groups in my Party; I consider the most extreme groups in my Party.
I’m going to keep asking this question:
How long is it going to take the MSM to figure out they are being played like fools?
til they realize they can be replaced by any $10/hr clerical who can take dictation?
I wish I knew how to make a youtube video out of all the players from the past week..hussein’s cousin. WoW!
Thanks! I’m so glad you captured their exchange. I really like Pat Caddell and have liked him for some years now. He’s the only honest liberal I can name. You can see his pain and disgust on his face. Like us, he very worried about Obama and his administration and also about the radical takeover of the party he once loved.
I recorded all of Glenn’s shows last week and plan to agin this week, but it’s sure nice seeing it in print. Thanks again.
Pat’s doing his own research too. I expect he’ll be a regular guest of Glenn’s. Amazing when patriots come together.
Good over all:
Even the USSR had Pravda. Looks to me like NBC has the inside track, with the other alphabets auditioning. CNN and NBC’s little bastard, pmnbc, can broad cable; the old grey harlot owns the print.
I think that Mark Lloyd at FCC needs to go next.
I almost hate to write this on a public forum, but I fear that the Van Jones-Bill Ayres “thugs” might be planning to blow up “a” Fox News building in the near future or maybe I type.
U of C Medical Center University of Chicago Lab School connections
[VALERIE JARRETT’s] The Network
[Valerie] Jarrett is most notably friends with Barack and Michelle Obama. They have been friends since Jarrett hired Michelle to work in the Chicago mayors office in 1991.
She is one of the most connected people in Chicago, and now national, Democratic politics. She is still close to Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, whom she worked with for years, and she counts Chicago entrepreneur Penny Pritzker, Obamas 2008 national finance chair, among her closest friends.
She is closely tied into Obamas Chicago network. Her father mentored Eric Whitaker and Anita Blanchard at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
Both are good friends with the Obamas, and Blanchard is married to Martin Nesbitt, another close Obama friend, who served as the 2008 campaign treasurer.
She served on the board of the University of Chicago Lab School with Michelle Obama, Martin Nesbitt and John W. Rogers, a friend and the former husband of Social Secretary Desiree Rogers.
Jarrett works directly with Tina Tchen both in the office of public liaison and on the White House Council on Women and Girls, which Jarrett chairs and Tchen is the executive director.
According to the documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Illinois Secretary of State, Valerie Jarrett served as a board member for several organizations that provided funding and support for Chicago housing projects operated by real estate developers and Obama financial backers Rezko and Allison Davis. (Davis is also Obamas former boss.) Jarrett was a member of the Board of Directors for the Woodlawn Preservation and Investment Corporation along with several Davis and Rezko associates, as well as the Fund for Community Redevelopment and Revitalization, an organization that worked with Rezko and Davis
As Chief Executive Officer of the Habitat Company Jarrett also managed a controversial housing project located in Obamas former state senate district called Grove Parc Plaza. According to the Boston Globe the housing complex was considered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage...In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale a score so bad the buildings now face demolition. Ms. Jarrett refused to comment to the Globe on the conditions of the complex.
I agree with all you said about Caddell. I taped (and transcribed a bit) all programs last week, BUT missed GB this week & will have to download; did not know he was continuing his expose. He’s becoming a National Hero in my book.
This is on Axelrod...BUT IIRC there are also links for J.
...By the late 1960s David Canter was publishing a small politically oriented Chicago neighbourhood newspaper Hyde Park Kenwood Voices. Canters partner and the papers editor was Don Rose, a journalist active in at least two Communist Party fronts....
David Canters late wife, Miriam Canter, was of similar mind. She was an active fundraiser for a defense committee for prominent medical researcher and secret Communist party member Dr. Jeremiah Stamler who was also under investigation by HCUA.
It was Don Rose (right) that hired a young political science student David Axelrod to write for Voices. It was Rose who mentored Axelrod and recommended him for the job at the Chicago Tribune which would launch his stellar career....
With nine others, Canter approached Democratic Party congressman Harold Washington about standing for the Chicago mayoralty. Canter had known Washington for many years, not surprising as the congressman had ties to Chicagos communists and socialists dating back until the 1940s.
Don Rose and David Axelrod also worked for Harold Washington. Rose served as an adviser to the mayor, while Axelrod served as a campaign consultant.
While Harold Washington died shortly after starting his second term, the coalition that elected him endured. The Chicago Communist Party was a key component of this alliance as was the Democratic Socialists of America. By the late 70s Don Rose had become close to the Chicago socialists as had Charles Hayes and Harold Washington himself.
Correction: taped the week before & missed all this past week; will go back to taping this coming week.
Tuesday he’s covering the school issue. A little lllate, since the speech will have taken place. But, he might have information on the players involved.
National hero in my book too! I’m serious when I tell you, I pray for his safety every night and for the safety of his family.
Thank you for pinging me to your information. I’ve enjoyed conversing with you. :)
Am bringing everything I have on V J from the Chicago Crime thread....Am not reading others until I’m finished...If there are duplicate, I’m sorry.
When youre crossing a swamp as deep and wide as Chicago, it helps to have a navigator. Of course, a case could be made that VJ was the one who invited the Obamas into the swamp in the first place.
Whatever VJs role may have been, its clear that at this juncture, it wouldnt be prudent to abandon this mentor and give her a reason to start airing her beefs on deep background with reporters like John Kass.
Ping to # 57.
what a snakepit! lot to read there...& untangle
BTW: I still have not figured out what IIRC means?
Link Jar to Washington to Axelrod:
Washington and his ties to CPUSA was the reason BO came to CHicago in the first place.
To: STARWISE; ETL
Jarrett was fanatical about African Americans registering and voting in mass for socially conscious candidates. He championed Harold Washington like a great warrior, and this March, from his hospital bed, wrote an article appealing to Black Chicago to turn out to vote for Barack Obama in the Illinois primaries. Obama astounded everyone with an incredible landslide victory as the progressive, Black candidate for the Democratic Party nomination for the U.S. Senate seat from Illinois. From his sickbed, Vernon Jarrett issued a clarion call, and the people responded.
I think Black Chicago was passionately in love with Vernon Jarrett...His unrelenting drive kept us reminded of a sense of purpose and helped to instill the courage of our convictions in struggle as a people. We will forever be indebted; we will never forget.
Indeed, Vernon Jarretts legacy is far from forgotten. Much of it lives on in the work of his daughter-in-law Valerie Jarrett.
If I recall correctly.
Ive been all over Free Republic campaigning
to target Valerie Jarrett next.
Thank you Michelle Malkin for this excellent
piece of investigative work and documentation.
You see... I believe it will shake Obummer to the
core if his wet nurse is removed. Axelrod and the
Emmanuel brothers should go as well, but Jarrett
will be a psychological score, like losing his
Mother again. Jarrett is Obummer’s moral compass
and is completely infatuated with him.

TY & GOOD! One limitation of FR is the ability to centralize all data on a subject in one location. BUT, thankfully, there are Freeper Historians & Librarians who know where everything is, so we can collect & investigate.
I had started an Eric Holder thread & and am working on an Arne Duncan thread that I haven’t posted yet, but the Jarrett comment on Van Jones “so happy he is aboard...been watching since Oakland,” coupled with what has already been discovered about her ADVICE sent me over the top...thus the thread.

Obama File 38 Barack Obama, Frank Marshall Davis, Vernon Jarrett-One Degree of Seperation
Obama File 37 here
Why did Barack Obama move to Chicago? Why did he choose a city famous for its corruption and distrust of outsiders as a launching pad for his political career?
Did Obamas boyhood mentor, life long communist Frank Marshall Davis influence that choice?
Obama admits he was inspired to first move to Chicago in 1983 by the election of the citys first black mayor Harold washington. Obama even unsuccessfully wrote away for a job in Washingtons administration.
Frank Marshall Davis had lived in Chicago for many years until moving to Hawaii in 1948. He had been active in Chicagos post War Communist Party while Harold Washington was a left leaning young law student. Had the two ever met?
Possibly not, but there was only one degree of seperation.
Frank Marshall Davis was involved in Chicagos South Side Community Art Center a meeting place for young African American writers and artists during the 1940s. An outgrowth of the Federal Art Project, the Art Center was a hangout for Communist Party members and sympathisers including Richard Wright, Margaret Burroughs, Marion Perkins and Arna Bontemps.
Another center regular was a young journalist named Vernon Jarrett. (((Valerie Jarretts father)))
Davis and Jarrett also worked together on the black run newspaper, the Chicago Defender.
Yes; I will need to find source, but I just read that he so influential that he made somewhat of a “deathbed” plea (don’t remember if he was very ill or actually dying) to voters and I think the quote was “and the voters responded.”
Sounded quite dramatic if I recall, & which election? have to find out; Illinois Senate or US Senate? It is probably on one of the 80 tabs I still have open.
LucyT, Thanks for the ping. Thouworm, Thanks for the wealth of information! The evil Chicago connections just go on and on and on...
Definitely connections there I discovered researching on FRED NERK’s
work. Will need to find also.

I agree.Time to nail Valerie Jarrett. She is the voice of the president and time to remove the voice and his ability to function.
Who is Valerie Jarrett, senior White House advisor to Barack Obama?
Certainly she is a long-time friend of and fundraiser for Barack Obama. But her ties to failed and fraudulent real estate deals in Chicago are of the most concern.
Problems including the fact that many of the approximately one thousand housing units were “uninhabitable” and were condemned by federal authorities. Grove Parc Plaza, one of the largest residential housing complexes in Barack Obama’s state senatorial district, has been at the center of a variety of scandals.

Link to a background peice on Valerie Jarrett. It is a puff peice, but has some good info.
With a little luck she’ll get nailed by FItzpatrick before we get her:
A federal grand jury has subpoenaed records on dozens of low-income housing projects built over the last 30 years by indicted businessman William F. Cellini, convicted political fund-raiser Tony Rezko and City Hall insider Allison S. Davis.
has built or managed thousands of apartments paid for by the state agency. Among them: Lake Shore Plaza, 445 E. Ohio, which is the only Cellini project specifically mentioned in the subpoena.
n all, Rezko got more than a dozen deals from IHDA, often with the help of Davis law firm, Davis Miner Barnhill, a small firm that specialized in helping developers get government funding for low-income housing.
Obama was a lawyer with the Davis firm. The president has said he did six hours of legal work in 1995 on one of the deals now under scrutiny by the grand jury, helping Rezko and his business partners Bishop Arthur Brazier and the Rev. Leon Finney turn an abandoned nursing home in Hyde Park into low-income apartments.
Six years later, Rezkos company stopped paying the mortgage. IHDA foreclosed on the property in 2001, as Rezkos low-income housing empire began to collapse, falling into physical and financial ruin.
Among those was a senior citizen building he and Rezko built at 4801 S. Cottage Grove, just outside the Illinois Senate district Obama then represented. Though the project was outside his district, Obama wrote letters in 1998 to IHDA and city officials, urging them to give Davis and Rezko government funding for the project. Obama has said he didnt remember writing the letters, which he has called form letters sent out by a staff member

The documents include federal subpoenas issued to Governor Blagojevichs office related to a number of individuals connected to President Obama and the national Democratic party, including:
Valerie Jarrett: Once labeled the other side of Barack Obamas brain by CBS news, Jarrett remains a close advisor to President Obama. Obama recently tapped Jarrett to chair his newly formed White House Council on Women and Girls. Jarrett was widely rumored to be a candidate to take over Obamas senate seat.
David Axelrod: Axelrod, Obamas top campaign strategist, now serves as a senior White House advisor. During the campaign, when asked about the search for a replacement for Obamas Senate seat, Axelrod told Fox News Chicago, I know [Obama has] talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names, many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them. He later retracted the statement.
David Wilhelm: Wilhelm, a former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee and campaign strategist for Bill Clinton, served as an informal advisor to the Obama campaign. He was also a superdelegate to the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
J.B. Pritzker: Obama named Mr. Pritzkers wife, Penny, to serve on his recently formed 15-member Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Penny Pritzker previously served as the Obama campaigns National Finance Chair.
Judicial Watch filed its original Freedom of Information Act request on November 27, 2006. Blagojevichs office claimed the subpoenas were exempt from disclosure. Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit on January 16, 2007, in the Cook County Illinois Circuit Court. Governor Pat Quinns office finally released the grand jury subpoenas on March 4, 2009.
The grand jury subpoena requesting documents on Jarrett, Axelrod and Pritzker is dated December 8, 2008. The grand jury subpoena that concerns David Wilhelm is dated April 13, 2007.
We now have confirmation that top Obama White House officials are caught up in a federal grand jury investigation, said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. It would be helpful if President Obama kept his promises of transparency and finally released all documents related to this scandal.
In January 2009, Judicial Watch obtained documents specifically regarding Blagojevichs contacts with President Obama and his transition team.
The documents include a December 3, 2008, letter from Barack Obama following a meeting with Blagojevich as well as a November 17, 2008, letter signed by former Presidential Transition Team co-chairs Valerie Jarrett and John Podesta providing Blagojevich with a list of transition team contacts.
Judicial Watch Litigation Director Paul Orfanedes also testified to the 21-member Special Investigative Committee that recommended Blagojevichs impeachment to the Illinois House of Representatives
