  • Is there a brain drain from Capitol Hill? If so, the GOP just lost its “evil genius”

    ABC via Yahoo News ^ | August 20, 2013 | Jeff Zeleny and Jordyn Phelps
    In the 11th hour negotiations on Capitol Hill, away from the glare of the media and behind closed doors, there are high-level Congressional staffers working to close the deal. In many of the nation’s biggest legislative crises in recent memory, Rohit Kumar has been at the table. As the chief negotiator for Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell during the Obama administration, Kumar has been so cunning in negotiating for Republican interests that an unnamed White House official recently characterized him as an “evil genius” to The Washington Post. “I do think it was intended as a compliment and I don't...

    Harold & Kumar Go to the DNC. Or at least Kumar aka Kal Penn is going to the DNC. As you can see in this video, actor Kal Penn who worked on and off for the Obama administration for a couple of years will be hosting a show at the Democrat National Convention this Thursday for BarackObama.Com. Since the main characteristic of Kumar in the movies is heavy duty marijuana smoking, how would that character feel about the big crackdown on medical marijuana dispensaries by the Obama administration? Kumar would probably dare to ask Obama about the hypocrisy of trying...

Here’s the group of young Hollywood gazillionaires he met with yesterday to make sure they’ve got his back. He needs them to help him get out the youth vote and to fill that quickly...

    Back in town: Kal Penn, the actor-turned-Obama-staffer. This summer, Penn — who goes by his birth name, Kalpen Modi, outside of Hollywood — quit a job in the White House’s office of public engagement in order to shoot the third installment in his stoner-flick franchise, “Harold & Kumar.” As of this week, he’s been rehired there as an associate director, according to ABC News reports. He’ll start work on Monday. Is this really the shot-in-the-arm team Obama needs to take on the GOP?

    WASHINGTON: An activist film-maker traveling in America to expose Islamic "terrorism" ran into trouble with American airport authorities on Friday after they found jihadist literature and brass knuckles in his baggage. Authorities at Houston’s George Bush International Airport detained Vijay Kumar, 40, said to be Mumbai-based documentary maker, after his ‘suspicious behaviour" led them to search his bags. While he was able to explain that the jihadist material and a manual for a handgun in his bags were part of ‘educational tools" he used for a lecture at a Hindu organisation on Islamic fundamentalism, he was at a loss to...

    APPARENTLY the First Lady's famous White House herb and vegetable garden was not the type of natural pick-me-up he was looking for. Kal Penn, star of the Harold & Kumar movies, will leave his job in the Obama administration to appear in a new Christmas-themed flick as his signature stoner character... Penn quit his previous gig, a recurring role on the hospital drama House to become White House director of public engagement last year.

    OCTOBER 17, 2009 Rajaratnam Surfaced in U.S. Terrorism Probe By EVAN PEREZ and MATTHEW ROSENBERG WASHINGTON—The hedge-fund billionaire charged as part of a vast insider-trading case surfaced in an earlier, separate probe into U.S. fundraising by a Sri Lankan terrorist group, people familiar with the probe said. As part of that investigation, federal agents said they uncovered documents showing that Raj Rajaratnam, founder of the Galleon Group, was among several wealthy Sri Lankans in the U.S. whose donations to a Maryland-based charity made their way to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, according to people familiar with the probe.

    We've had actors-turned-mayors, and actors-turned-governors. . . but actors-turned-White House staffers? That's a new one! "House" star Kal Penn -- whose character was killed off on Monday's episode -- is taking a sabbatical from acting to work for President Obama. The 31-year-old actor, first launched to fame as a stoner student in the "Harold and Kumar" movies, is coming to Washington to be associate director in the White House Office of Public Liaison, Entertainment Weekly first reported yesterday.

    Sanjay Kumar, 44, had faced up to 20 years behind bars after pleading guilty in April to obstruction of justice and securities fraud charges at the company, which since has become known as CA Inc. Prosecutor Eric Komitee said Kumar deserved severe punishment as the architect of an elaborate coverup that was "the most brazen in the modern era of corporate crime." "I know that I was wrong and there was no excuse for my conduct," Kumar, who is also a co-owner of the New York Islanders hockey team, told the judge at his sentencing.

    NEW YORK - Bonuses at Wall Street firms climbed to a projected record of $21.5 billion last year as revenue grew, according to the New York state comptroller's office. Comptroller Alan Hevesi said Wednesday that 2005's bonus tally was $2 billion more than the old record, which was set in 2000. In 2004, Wall Street bonuses came to an estimated $18.6 billion. Last year's average bonus was pegged at $125,500, also a record, Hevesi said. Revenue at Wall Street firms rose 44.5 percent through the first three quarters of 2005, climbing to the highest level since 2000, the year when...

    Former Worldcom Chief Executive Bernard Ebbers was handed a 25-year prison term for directing the biggest accounting fraud in corporate history, leaving thousands of investors empty-handed. Ebbers, who built a small Mississippi-based long distance company into a telecommunications powerhouse, was found guilty on March 15 on all charges — one count of conspiracy, one count of securities fraud and seven counts of false regulatory filings. But he could also be a charming and folksy CEO, who preferred cowboy boots to suits, opened shareholder meetings with a prayer, ate lunch in the cafeteria and ran a company that had become a...
