[Yawn] Another Day, Another Lawless Bureaucrat

Stop me if you have heard this one before: a member of the Obama Administration likely violated the law by using her position to raise funds for her boss’s reelection campaign. What do our government watchdogs think of this? From the story:

The Office of Special Counsel closed its investigation when Solis stepped down from the Cabinet in January 2013. But the agency had referred the matter to the Department of Justice for possible criminal investigation.

The FBI interviewed Solis and at least one other person in connection with the probe, and a grand jury took testimony last June, the Times has reported. The current status of the FBI investigation is unclear.

Do you feel better? Even though the OSC had to end the matter upon Secretary Solis’s resignation, they have passed along the inquiry to that beacon of justice and good government Eric Holder, who will certainly conduct this investigation will his usual thoroughness and due diligence.

Meanwhile, Hilda Solis has managed to get herself elected as Los Angeles County Supervisor, a position which pays $181,292 per year along with an office spending account of $3 million per year for staff, cars, and pet projects.

Ain’t this a great country?

  1. If you have a high tolerance for pain, just read some of the comments on the LATimes story which sort of defend Solis by attacking Issa in particular and Republicans in general. I keep forgetting my Alinsky: that lying and cheating is fine and dandy if it is in the service of keeping progressives in power.

  6. There was also another case involving a violation of the Hatch Act which concerned an attorney for the Federal Elections Commission probably using her office computer too send emails during the 2012 presidential election campaign. She settled the case and avoided prosecution.

    The case was hampered when they had difficulty verifying for sure that her office computer, rather than a private computer was used during office hours because her hard drive had crashed.!

    Her boss at one time was Lois Lerner.

    It is unkmown exactly how much contact Lois Lerner maintained with April Sands but she did send some IRS information to the FEC.

  10. There’s no evidence of corruption anywhere in the Obama Administration, none at all, top to bottom, not a single smidgen of corruption. Now, you just better quit talking about all the taxpayer’s money squandered on Shovel Ready Jobs and phony Green Energy Scams, or all those AK-47 assault rifles we provided to Mexican drug cartels, or polluting the Gulf of Mexico so George Soros could make a ton of money in Brazil, or NSA snooping on telephone calls, emails, or web site visits worldwide, or siccing the IRS on TEA Party political opponents, or aiding and abetting al-qaeda in the Middle East and coddling bloodthirsty terrorists at home, or leaving Americans to die in Benghazi, or planning and organizing an invasion of illegal aliens, or any and all the other high crimes and misdemeanors committed each and every day for which not one smidgen of evidence will ever see the light of day as long as stonewalls keep Congressional cowards at bay, hard drives crash on command, and useful idiots continue to duck subpoenas and refuse to come clean all because The Affirmative Action President cannot be allowed to fail, and most importantly, POTUS still retains the power to pardon.

    So, you see, the fix in in. So just shut up, or else!

  16. She was a crook before going to DC;
    She was a crook while in DC;
    She will continue being a crook after returning from DC.
    The question is:
    Will she ever pay any penalty for her transgressions?
