    Former Obama campaign aide David Plouffe has been fined $90,000 for breaking the city of Chicago’s ethics rules in lobbying Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) on behalf of Uber. The Chicago Board of Ethics in a 5-0 vote determined that Plouffe broke the rules by not registering as a lobbyist after seeking Emanuel’s support for rules to allow Uber to pick up passengers at Chicago’s airports, reports the Chicago Tribune. The violation became public after Emanuel released hundreds of emails in December, bowing to pressure from two lawsuits claiming that he had violated Illinois’s open record law. “Assume both of us...

    The man who managed former President Barack Obama’s campaign has been slapped with a $90,000 fine for using Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s private email account to lobby the mayor on behalf of ride-sharing giant Uber without registering as a lobbyist. Newly-appointed Chicago Board of Ethics Chairman Attorney William Conlon said the fine assessed against David Plouffe is the largest ever by the Chicago Board of Ethics. It represents $1,000 for every one of the 90 days that Plouffe failed to registered as a lobbyist after his November 2015 email to Emanuel on the mayor’s personal account. “Registration of lobbyists is important....

    Basically there’s been quite a shake – up in the White House and the Democrats and George Soros are doing the shaking.They’ve been the brunt of all Obama’s political blunders and have grown weary of their Commander in Chief’s screw upsfor the past five years. Senate and House Democrats are venting their frustrations over the ACA and worried that if it keeps self -destructing theNovember 2014 Elections are going to be a nightmare for Democrats. For starters, here are a few disgruntled Democratswho aren’t happy with their Commander in Chief. Mary Landrieu (D – La), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va), Mark Pryor...

    Trump's decision to give a set of remarks — with the aid of a teleprompter — earlier this week is just one example of how the candidate is lazy and unwilling to go about the traditional means of campaigning, Plouffe said. "It's so offensive as a practitioner," he said. "Get on your plane and go to Ohio. It's not that complicated … I think he's actually quite lazy. He's lazy." Plouffe, who is now an adviser at Uber, went on to say that Trump is "not doing basic things" that are expected, or required, of a major party's nominee, such...

    President Obama’s former campaign manager on Monday argued that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has no hope of defeating Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. “I believe Hillary Clinton has zero chance of not being the Democratic nominee,” David Plouffe wrote on Medium. "The Clinton lead is almost 300 in pledged delegates. And over 700 in total delegates. "Clinton will end the primary, even if she underperforms the rest of the way, with a pledged delegate lead greater than Barack Obama’s in 2008.”

    Aid and Abet: "to assist another in the commission of a crime by words or conduct." Yup, in the mind of Dems, it's nothing short of a crime for the MSM to do anything but get behind whichever presidential candidate has a 'D' after her name. Witness former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe--now a Hillary endorser--on today's With All Due Respect. He told John Heilemann that if Marco Rubio were the Republican candidate "you in the press, that worries me, because that's going to be a really interesting narrative: young, diverse, versus old." Plouffe went on to complain that the...

    To keep conservative rebels in check, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and his allies have been doling out punishments at an aggressive clip in the 114th Congress. From kicking unruly members off the Rules Committee and GOP whip team to stripping a lawmaker of his subcommittee gavel, leadership has been growing more comfortable with taking retaliatory measures to try to enforce party discipline. But several Tea Party targets haven’t gone quietly. They’ve been fighting back with help from Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan’s conservative House Freedom Caucus, which successfully pressured leaders this week to return a subcommittee gavel to one of their...

    Uber CEO Travis Kalanick announced Tuesday that the San Francisco ride-matching company had hired David Plouffe, the campaign manager for Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, as a senior vice president/campaign manager. This means war -- an epic war -- that will pit Uber and the Obama Whisperer against not only what Kalanick calls "the Big Taxi cartel" but also the giant insurance industry, a friend to both political parties, and the trial lawyer lobby, a key special interest for the Democrats. "I think it's a great fit," Republican political operative Aaron McLear mused. Plouffe "sold a disruptive political candidate to...

    Maybe David Plouffe was talking about a different group of Americans when he made this outrageous statement on ABC's This Week. His version of reality is far removed from the version I am seeing unfold as ObamaCare shows itself for what it really is. Politico - Former Senior White House Adviser David Plouffe on Sunday said he believes President Barack Obama’s “numbers will recover” and that people “trust this president.” “It’s been a tough patch,” Plouffe said on ABC’s “This Week.” “And it’s not just healthcare, you know, the shutdown affected everybody, confidence in government. But let’s fast forward to the...

    >It’s clear that liberals like David Plouffe and David Sirota have a moral duty to kill me. And to kill you too. Plouffe says I’m a traitor, since I support “economic treason.” David Sirota says I’m a “secessionist,” that I support a “coup” leading to the destruction of the Union. This is the kind of mature, carefully-considered insight I’d expect to be tweeted by the “Senior Advisor to the President.” I expect nothing less from a writer at Salon.com, a website that has nearly achieved its goal of tying the page view rankings of its main competitor, NaughtyElderlyCheerleaderAction.org.

    In the wake of Mitt Romney's loss, many Republicans say the GOP must make far-reaching changes to be competitive in future elections. White voters are a smaller and smaller part of the electorate, they point out, while Latinos and other minorities are growing as a percentage of the voting public. Unless the Republican Party reinvents itself to appeal to those voters, the argument goes, the GOP can get used to being out of power. There's something to that. The electorate is changing, and the Republican Party needs to keep up with the times. But the more fundamental answer to the...
