    "The man who is President Obama's newly minted urban czar pocketed thousands of dollars in campaign cash from city developers whose projects he approved or funded with taxpayers' money, a Daily News probe found.

    Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion often received contributions just before or after he sponsored money for projects or approved important zoning changes, records show.

    Most donations were organized and well-timed.

    In one case, a developer became a Carrion fund-raiser two months before the borough president signed off on his project, raising more than $6,000 in campaign cash.

    In another, eight Boricua College officials came up with $8,000 on the same day for Carrion three weeks before the school filed plans to build a new tower. Carrion ultimately approved the project and sponsored millions in taxpayer funds for it.

    Carrion resigned as borough president effective Sunday and begins his new job as director of the White House Office on Urban Policy Monday.

    Saturday Carrion declined to answer written questions about his receipt of timely campaign contributions.

    Last year Jonathan Coren and a partner wanted to build 166 units of affordable housing in Parkchester.

    Coren, for the first time in his life, became a registered fund-raiser - for Carrion. He raised $2,577 from multiple donors in the three weeks before Carrion approved the project on March 26"

    Are there any honest Democrats anywhere?

    AND another non taxpayer!

    "Leaders of the Senate Finance Committee this afternoon revealed that another of President Obama’s nominees — U.S. Trade Representative-designate Ron Kirk — has tax problems.

    Finance staff briefed aides to committee members today on the revelations, which indicate the former Dallas mayor underpaid taxes to the tune of $9,975 during 2005-07, and that he has agreed to promptly file adjustments. The underpayments deal in part with speaking honoraria he received that he listed as charitable donations to his alma mater, Austin College."

    Mash on the link.


    The entire dumocrat party is being exposed for exactly what they are, criminals, liars and cheats. From Ted Kennedy,,to Hussein,,they are all the same. Hussein's cabinet will be noted as the most corrupt administration in history.

    Hussein campaigns,,promising not to sign legislation with earmarks. What a dishonest joke. He will sign,, a spending bill,,,with 8600 earmarks,,totaling 7.7 billion!!!


    Eight thousand six hundred earmarks!!!
