Corruption: Obama Regime Spends $500,000 in Stimulus Funds to Promote Obama Regime

Obama wink

Just a reminder – Obama’s so-called “stimulus” program was nothing more than a $800 billion slush fund.

The Labor Department paid out hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal stimulus funds to a public relations firm to run more than 100 commercials touting the Obama administration’s “green training” job efforts on two MSNBC cable shows, records show.

The commercials ran on MSNBC on shows hosted by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann in 2009, but the contract didn’t report any jobs created, according to records reviewed recently by The Washington Times.

Spending reports under the federal Recovery Act show $495,000 paid to McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations LLC, which the Labor Department hired to raise awareness “among employers and influencers about the [Job Corps] program’s existing and new training initiatives in high growth and environmentally friendly career areas” as well as spreading the word to prospective Job Corps enrollees.

The firm ultimately negotiated ad buys for “two approved spots” airing 14 times per week for two months on “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” and “The Rachel Maddow Show,” according to a project report, which listed the number zero under a section of the report asking how many jobs had been created through the stimulus contract.

And next week, Obama and the Democrats will be telling us that what the economy needs is more regulation, more take-overs, more bailouts, and of course, more “stimulus” spending.

    Obama and the democrats have shown the rest of us that corrupt politicians can do what they want, when they want to us little people without any fear of prosecution for their crimes committed while in office. Laws in america mean nothing to these types of politicians which now have the presidency and congress.
