Pay and Play

Wholesale sell out of the top tier of the US Government, at least the Executive Branch.

From USA Today:

"More than 40% of President Obama's top-level fundraisers have secured posts in his administration, from key executive branch hobs to diplomatic posting in countries such as France, Spain and the Bahamas, a USA TODAY analysis finds.

Twenty of the 47 fundraisers that Obama's campaign identified as collecting more than $500,000.00 have been named to government positions, the analysis found.

Overall, about 600 individuals and couples raised money from their friends, family members and business associates to help fund Obama's presidential campaign. "

Was not this supposed to be the Administration that cleaning up Washington D.C.? I thought part of PresBO's message was that he would not cater to special interests and the money players in the "old" D.C.?

Hope and Change more like Pay and Play!
